As of January 1, 2012, PIP is C-TPAT certified (Customs-Trade Partnership against Terrorism), meaning PIP’s entire supply chain, from factory to the warehouse shipping docks, is certified to the Customs’ security threshold. The U.S. Customs Department has verified that our supply chain is free from all risks that would potentially result in terrorism or other unsafe activities that can disrupt operations in the United States.
C-TPAT is a voluntary government-business initiative to build cooperative relationships that strengthen and improve overall international supply chain and U.S. border security. By joining the more than 10,000 companies involved in C-TPAT, PIP can ensure reduced inspections by Customs Border Security and shorter time frames to get goods released. It also results in shorter lead times to get goods to the warehouse door and eliminates the cost of container inspections. In addition, certification reduces theft and increases the security of our products.
