The Camelot Company is proud to be a certified and validated member of the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection’s C-TPAT (Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism) program. As a member of C-TPAT, we have certified and provided to Customs information that lets them know that we are secure participants in the supply chain. As a C-TPAT forwarder and broker, importers who use companies that are participants in the C-TPAT program (carriers, forwarders and brokers) will see fewer incidences of delays and examinations of the cargo. Additionally, C-TPAT membership gives importers access to preferential Customs programs, such as the Periodic Monthly Statement.
Just as Camelot must meet minimum security requirements, so must importers. One of the key elements for importers who ship by sea is the seven-point container inspection process.
CBP has posted a comprehensive FAQ for importers on the topic at their website. The link can be found here.
To enjoy C-TPAT benefits, all partners must be C-TPAT approved.
