Supply chain visibility is critical to maintaining the security of our nation with the continued escalation of terrorist threats. U.S. Customs and Border Protection "Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism" (C-TPAT) led the way in developing a partnership between government and trade to secure our borders. But it doesn't end there. What can we expect down the road? This seminar will provide an update on the current status of the C-TPAT program, as well as taking a look at other initiatives and standards, such as the WCO Framework and ISO/PAS 28000, that are making supply chain security a global concern.
