RILA urges DHS to follow C-TPAT model

RILA urges DHS to follow C-TPAT model

   The Retail Industry Leaders Association is advising the Department of Homeland Security to follow the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism program as a model for a successful public-private partnership as it looks to advance cargo security, RILA said Monday.

   In a letter submitted to Homeland Secretary Michael Chertoff, RILA urged Chertoff to support the C-TPAT program as both a critical component to increasing supply chain security globally, and a model example of how a public-private partnership works for both the government and industry participants.

   'C-TPAT has become a globally recognized brand,” Jon Gold, RILA vice president of global supply chain policy, said in a statement. “It is critical for the success of any supply chain security effort that there is global recognition and adoption of security measures. C-TPAT is one part of the overall global approach that will help accomplish this.”

   RILA is an alliance of the global retailer and supplier companies. RILA members represent almost $1.4 trillion in sales annually and operate more than 100,000 stores, manufacturing facilities and distribution centers nationwide.
