NEO Tech announces that it has completed and received approval for its certification for Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT), that is part of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) multi-layered cargo enforcement strategy.
With this certification NEO Tech can now achieve faster clearance through CBP for products manufactured in NEO Tech Juarez and Tijuana Mexico locations with access to the Free and Secure Trade (FAST) Lanes at the U.S. land borders. At the same time the NEO Tech network of U.S. electronic manufacturing service locations will experience more expeditious CBP clearance for inbound materials. These logistical improvements will enable enhanced end-customer experiences.
“With NEO Tech now a certified CTPAT partner, our end customers can now benefit with more predictable logistics and supply chain performance,” stated Magdy Henry, NEO Tech Vice President of Supply Chain. “We are also proud to join the community of other certified partners to strengthen international supply chains and improve United States border security.”
CTPAT is a voluntary public-private sector partnership program which recognizes that CBP can provide the highest level of cargo security only through close cooperation with the principle stakeholders of the international supply chain. Participants in the community of certified partners work with CBP to protect the supply chain, identify security gaps, and implement specific security measures and best practices.
