New Jersey company earns prestigious anti-terrorism security certification from US Government

Port Jersey Logistics' C-TPAT Certification Is Among The First Awarded By The US Customs & Border Protection Agency.

Robert Russo, President of Port Jersey Logistics, a leading public warehousing and distribution company, announced today that Port Jersey is one of the first third-party logistics companies ever to receive a Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) Certification from the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Agency.

Events on September 11, 2001 uncovered the need to improve security throughout the United States, including at the nation's ports and distribution hubs. The United States government, in partnership with businesses involved in importing goods into the U.S., adopted measures to tighten security at customs checkpoints under a certification program entitled C-TPAT. The ultimate goal of the program is to help guarantee the integrity of supply-chain management and operations while improving the process of securing and inspecting cargo.

Port Jersey received this Certification after submitting a detailed analysis of its day-to-day practices, allowing for a close audit of the way in which goods are handled and demonstrating effective standard operating security procedures within the company. Examining the company's practices involves looking at procedural, physical, and personnel security, along with access controls, how packing manifests are handled, and what sort of education and training employees receive. Once the application of the business to join C-TPAT is approved, it is assigned a Supply Chain Security Specialist who evaluates the supply chain and provides suggestions for improvement before certifying the business as a member.

“As a leader in this industry, we are proud to be the first among our competitors to achieve this important certification,” said Robert Russo, President of Port Jersey Logistics. “Security was always a top priority for us but the events of September 11th further reiterated how critical it is to always keep safety at the forefront of our minds. Our team deserves tremendous credit for this achievement.”
