Customs Trade Partnership against Terrorism (C-TPAT) status confirmed for another three years
ERIE, Pa. (November 29, 2016) – Logistics Plus Inc., a leading worldwide provider of transportation, logistics and supply chain solutions, is proud to announce its C-TPAT status has been maintained by meeting all of the required revalidation criteria examined as part of a recent U.S. Customs Border and Protection (CBP) audit.

Members must undergo a revalidation process every three years, and Logistics Plus continues to meet all of the necessary criteria, including:
- Supply Chain Security Risk Assessment
- Business Partner Requirements
- Container / Conveyance / Transport Security
- Procedural Security
- Physical Security
- Physical Access Controls
- Security Training and Threat Awareness
- Personnel Security
- Information Technology Security
“We are very proud of our revalidation results and being a member of this important partnership,” said Adam Mook, compliance manager for Logistics Plus. “As a global operating company, we see it as our duty to comply with international security guidelines to protect our customers and their supply chains against risks and peril.”
