Statement of Support
Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) is a voluntary supply chain security
initiative designed and overseen by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to build
cooperative relationships with the trade community to strengthen and improve overall supply
chain and border security.
In today’s global environment, the threat from terrorists, contraband smugglers, and cyber
criminals are more prevalent than ever before, with these bad actors creating new ways to
target our country and its citizens every day. The CTPAT program provides the trade
community with the opportunity to play a major role in the war against terror and to ensure a
more secure supply chain for employees, business partners, and customers.
Specialized Global Logistics, its executives, management, stakeholders, and employees are
committed to participation in the CTPAT program, and to creating, implementing, and following
practices and procedures that are consistent with the Minimum Security Criteria for U.S.
Highway Carriers. Specialized Global Logistics understands that only by meeting these criteria
can we ensure the security and integrity of our international supply chain.

the highest level of security standards at our facility(ies).
Providing security guidelines and training to Specialized Global Logistics employees,
contractors, and service providers.
