With your DOT login, you can customize it to your operations.  Need help working with this, or want the assessment done, but you don't have time, give us a call, and we can help or even complete the assessment for you.


 C-TPAT Minimum Security Requirements for Highway Carriers - 2020 document is provided below. Use the file 2020 C-TPAT MSR working document.pdf  in Word format to highlight where you need to address program deficiencies.  O or optional means you don't NEED to incorporate. Enhanced means updates are needed, and Req'd, or R means this is a requirement for the new program.  Send me an email and I will send you a copy in Word for your internal audit - or call me and arrange a date for me to review your profile and provide updates for the new requirements. I have been working with C-TPAT since 2004, and have extensive experience with C-TPAT and PIP.   CTPAT Highway Carriers MSC 2019.pdf
