Faster Customs Clearance
Over the years it is no secret that there has been an increase in production in Mexico for goods purchased and distributed here in the US and abroad. One particular customer of mine has sourced close to 60% of its previous US production in Mexico at a state of the art facility. The biggest challenge to this operation was in moving products back north to the USA to three select finished goods warehouses.
We worked with them to streamline their process by securing Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism Certification, more commonly referred to as C-TPat Certification.
C-TPat certification basically tells Customs and Border Protection that your company and its logistics partners adhere to requirements that C-TPat mandates. This certification enables you to move your product through the customs clearing process in a more expedited manner.
For my customer, the “expedited manner” meant 25 trucks per week destined to and from the US cleared on average 1 day faster than those without certification! The end result being more inventory turns in the warehouse and increased in cash flow.
