Versailles, Ohio (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
Midmark Corporation, a leading provider of medical, dental and veterinary healthcare equipment solutions, recently announced it received its Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) certification, a voluntary government initiative to build cooperative relationships that strengthen the internal supply chain and the U.S. border security.
The C-TPAT offers businesses an opportunity to play an active role in the war against terrorism. With Midmark participating in C-TPAT, it can guarantee a more secure supply chain for its employees, suppliers and customers.
The C-TPAT certification will benefit Midmark and its customers by reducing the number of inspections and border wait times, allowing shipments to arrive quicker at all Midmark U.S. locations. Midmark was also assigned a C-TPAT specialist to serve as the CBP liaison for self-policing and self-monitoring of security activities, reduced selection rate for Compliance Measurement Examinations, improved workforce security, and greater supply chain integrity.
Joel Haws, corporate logistics manager stated, “This is a very big achievement for Midmark. It was important for us to obtain this certification as we focus more on becoming a global organization. Not only will this certification ensure that we are following sound security practices and procedures, but it will also show that Midmark is making a vital contribution to help secure our borders and ensure the continued free flow of international trade.”
