Port Tampa Bay Wins C-TPAT anti-terrorism certification

Port Tampa Bay has received C-TPAT (Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism) certification, from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

C-TPAT is a voluntary public-private sector partnership program. C-TPAT certification means that the port authority has demonstrated a strong commitment to supply chain security and maintains ongoing collaboration with its many public and private partners port-wide, as well as law enforcement and Customs operations at the port.  For more information, visit http://www.c-tpat-certification.com.

"As one of the largest and most active ports in the country, with a very diverse array of companies and cargo interests in our footprint, being honored with C-TPAT certification is a huge thing for all of us and a testament to our outstanding port community," said Port President Paul Anderson. "We take our security, safety and anti-terrorism initiatives very seriously and approach all related issues in a highly collaborative way, involving our customers, tenants, the trucking community and more, and with the support of all our partners we will continue to build on this success and strengthen our port."
