Steam Logistics has been certified by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) as a partner in its Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) program. Through this program, CBP works with the trade community in a public-private partnership to strengthen international supply chains and improve United States border security.

As a partner in CTPAT, Steam has agreed to work with CBP to protect the supply chain, identify security gaps, and implement specific security measures and best practices. The company must address a broad range of security topics and present security profiles that list action plans to properly align security throughout the supply chain.

Through this partnership, CBP and Steam are able to better mitigate and prevent contraband, human smuggling, and potential attacks to the international supply chain, which may lead to crippling economic disruptions. Additionally, as a CTPAT member, Steam considered to be a low risk provider of international transportation and logistics, and is therefore less likely to be examined at a U.S. port of entry.

“We are excited to be a proactive partner for the CBP as both a demonstration of our commitment to U.S. security and to managing our clients’ supply chains more efficiently,” says Steve Smith, VP of Customs at Steam. “This CTPAT partnership is just one of the ways we are continuing to ensure we are offering our clients the world-class service they expect from Steam.”
