Newark, CA (PRWEB) September 1, 2008
Power Freight Systems, an industry leader in third-party logistics and warehousing, is pleased to announce it has achieved the challenging Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) consolidator certification.
C-TPAT, established in 2003, is a voluntary supply chain security initiative spearheaded by US Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Its objective is to ensure company supply chains are secured against possible terrorist threats and to expedite freight import operations.
To qualify as a C-TPAT consolidator, organizations must undergo a restrictive qualification review and demonstrate the implementation of extensive, security focused operational and administrative practices.
Effective immediately, Power Freight Systems will bear the C-TPAT logo on its website to demonstrate its willingness to exceed security standards in the supply chain industry.
"We are pleased to be able to set our name alongside those that have joined C-TPAT," said CEO Malcolm Winspear of Power Freight Systems. "This certification underscores our commitment to providing both secure and efficient third-party logistics and transport."
In addition to receiving their C-TPAT certification, on the fourth of July, Power Freight Systems launched PowerHouse version 3.0. PowerHouse is a proprietary WMS system that streamlines warehouse management operations while simplifying item management processing for receiving, shipping and pick-up.
