Three logistics subsidiaries of Ryder System recently received three security certifications Asia and Trans-Pacific logistics operations, adding to existing credentials the company gained for its supply chain operations in North America.
These certifications, Ryder noted, are part of join customs security programs formulated by government and private industry that aim to prevent the use of global supply chains to facilitate a terrorist attack and/or smuggling drugs, illicit goods, people and money.
Ryder Ascent Logistics Singapore and Ryder Supply Chain Solutions Asia – part of Ryder’s Supply Chain Solutions division – gained third party logistics (3PL) certification via the Customs-Trade Partnership against Terrorism (C-TPAT), a joint U.S. government-business initiative supported by the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Customs and Border Protection that promotes global supply chain security and reduces border vulnerabilities.
Ryder CRSA Logistics, also part of Ryder’s Supply Chain Solutions division, gained certification in the Canada Partners in Protection (PIP) program, a Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) program that enlists the cooperation of private industry to enhance border and trade chain security, combat organized crime and terrorism and help detect and prevent contraband smuggling.
The company previously announced C-TPAT and PIP certifications of its North American operations in the U.S., Mexico and Canada.
