C-TPAT - ViaTech Systems

Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) is a voluntary government-business initiative established by Customs Border Patrol following the September 11 terrorist attacks. The main purpose of C-TPAT is to build cooperate relationships that strengthen and improve overall international supply chain and U.S. border security. The project was a survey of C-TPAT members to understand the benefits of being a C-TPAT partner, and to track the costs and return on investment of being associated with C-TPAT membership. The project included an SME (Subject Matter Expert) workshop, semi-structured interviews, a pilot study, and a web questionnaire.
