C- TPAT

WHAT IS C-TPAT

The Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) is a voluntary, joint effort between the United States government and businesses involved in importing goods into the United States. Since the attacks of September 11th 2001, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has realized that a new level of security is required within the supply chain and at U.S. borders.

Farrow U.S. works continuously to ensure that every step of the importing process is secure, even before shipments arrive at U.S. ports of entry. These efforts are furthered in cooperation with our parent company, the Farrow, which is also certified in the Canadian PIP (Partners In Protection) program through Farrow.


The Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) is a voluntary partnership between Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the trade to secure the international supply chain.

In return for partners securing their supply chains, CBP offers C-TPAT shipments expedited processing and provides C-TPAT participants with other benefits.

How can your company benefit from us?

Border Security is one of the highest priorities in importing goods into the U.S. Being a member of the C-TPAT program gives Farrow (U.S.) Inc. and our clients a competitive edge over non-participants.
Expedited Processing. Members of C-TPAT are less likely to be subject to customs inspections, and will be routed to the front of customs lines when they do need to be inspected. Supply Chain Efficiency. Adherence to tighter supply chain guidelines ensures greater prediction of lead times, decreased supply chain disruptions and reduced cargo theft, to name a few.
