Dear Valued Customer:

James J. Boyle & Co. is a certified and validated CTPAT Customs Broker.

Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) is a partnership between the trade community and U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP), designed to establish supply chain security processes to prevent terrorist devices and other contraband from entering the global supply chain.

As a member of the CTPAT program, we are required to engage with all of our business partners in order to ensure and aid you developing and maintaining a security program within the guidelines of the CTPAT program with emphasis on ensuring the integrity of all U.S. bound shipments. Together we can work to prevent the introduction of unauthorized materials into any cargo, container, trailer or other shipping conveyance. The CTPAT minimum security criteria are available on CBP’s website here. After reviewing these criteria, you should implement any security and/or trade compliance improvements necessary to comply, and consider applying for CTPAT membership.

If you are a member of the CTPAT program, please let us know by connecting with us through your CTPAT portal’s Status Verification Interface and look us up by our company name. Several other countries have developed similar, equivalent programs. These include Canada’s Partners in Protection (PIP) and what many other countries have designated as Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) program. If you are a member of any of these programs, please forward us a certificate of membership from the customs agency.

Container and Truck Trailer Inspections: It is also important to educate your business partners you select (suppliers, shippers, consolidators, trucking companies and all other logistics partners) about the CTPAT program. Particular emphasis on 17-Point Trailer and 7-Point Container inspections, seal process, live-time tracking and monitoring of cargo en route, personnel access control security, and security awareness training is requested. Inspections of containers should be documented, and a copy of the completed inspection should be forwarded to you from your truckers along with other documents associated with the shipments.

Please remind your partners that all loaded U.S. bound containers/trailers must be secured with an ISO PAS 17712 high security seal. CTPAT requires that you must also have written procedures within your supply chain for recognizing and reporting compromised seals on your containers and trailers to CBP or appropriate foreign authorities, and for challenging unknown/unauthorized persons within your facilities. If you should need assistance with any of these issues, please contact us for further information and training.

In sum, we are asking all our business partners to have a documented cargo and supply chain security program. Please feel free to contact us with questions regarding CTPAT, developing your own security plan, or any other supply chain security matters.

Thank you for your attention and cooperation. If you have any questions, please contact your nearest JJB representative.
