Customs-Trade Partnerships Against Terrorism (C-TPAT)
Many changes occurred to the restrictions on international trade after September 11, 2001.
Combating threats of terrorism became Customs & Border Protection’s number one priority and now CBP had to tighten their inspections, entry regulations and air shipping guidelines to help eliminate these potential threats. Learn more...
C-TPAT recognizes that Customs can provide the highest level of security only through close cooperation with the ultimate owners of the supply chain-importers, carriers, brokers, warehouse operators and manufacturers. American Cargo Express respects these realities as well, which is why we are CTPAT certified. Our customers can be assured our warehouse operations are carried out with the diligence and care required in the new global economy. Learn more...
Regulatory Compliance Services
Many companies over the last decade have joined the ranks of those who conduct business globally. Today there is a need for an international presence in many industries, from clothing to electronics and everything in between. This creates a large demand for consulting and training services to be provided for both import and export operations. American Cargo Express strives to provide each of our customers with the necessary information to make their business succeed. We don't just make an entry for you; we are also here to guide you with your first foray into international waters by providing much needed advice and expertise.
Under the U.S. Customs Modernization Act, international shippers and their logistics suppliers are responsible to exercise "reasonable care" in processing U.S. Customs transactions. In a regulatory environment where the consequences for non-compliance have increasingly become the receiver/consignee's responsibility, American Cargo Express has taken a proactive approach in navigating the intricacies of import laws and regulations. Our focus on compliance and all regulatory issues is paramount to both our reputation, and our customer’s confidence.
We believe that maintaining a partnership with both the relevant US regulatory body and our customers coupled with the proper flow of information, can achieve positive results. We are committed to provide the latest up to the minute information and Customs administrative directives as it pertains to our customers.
Mistakes regarding production decisions are best found before the manufacturing begins.
