Committed to Supply Chain Security: BDG’s C-TPAT Certification

BDG International, Inc. proudly holds the title of an international freight forwarder, customs broker, and international trade consulting firm certified by U.S. Customs and Border Protection as a member in the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT).

Notably, BDG is one of the select few brokers in Chicago, Illinois to earn the esteemed certification as a C-TPAT member. To achieve this recognition, we underwent a rigorous Customs review and certification process, demonstrating our unwavering commitment to security measures.

But what exactly is C-TPAT?

C-TPAT is a collaborative government-business initiative designed to cultivate cooperative relationships that fortify overall supply chain and border security. It underscores that Customs can achieve the highest level of security only through close collaboration with the ultimate custodians of the supply chain: importers, carriers, brokers, warehouse operators, and manufacturers.

Under this initiative, Customs calls upon businesses to ensure the integrity of their security practices and communicate their security guidelines to their partners within the supply chain. BDG International, Inc. is dedicated to upholding these principles, further assuring the security and efficiency of your logistics solutions.
