Canadian Pacific Railway adopts C-TPAT security standards

CALGARY (March 24, 2003) — Canadian Pacific Railway has joined the U.S. Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT), an initiative designed to strengthen overall supply chain and border security yet maintain a flow of goods into the United States.

C-TPAT applicants must show strong security standards in various aspects of its organization, including infrastructure, facilities, and data management.

The railroad said it would work with customs officials to promote a secure supply chain by encouraging shippers and transportation partners to adopt C-TPAT standards.
