GTKonnect C-TPAT helps companies meet all the requirements of the new recommended guidelines.
While designed to support the US based C-TPAT certification, the product being template driven, can also be used to manage the Canadian PIP requirements and AEO needs of other countries.
Customers of GTKonnect C-TPAT can use the application to:
1) Create new supply chains by mapping all partners
2) Look at a geographic view of the supply chains
3) Conduct a region based threat assessment to determine the threat scores for supply chains as well as partners
4) Solicit information from the supply chain partners using surveys to assess vulnerabilities, partners can access and provide the information through a collaborative portal
5) Create follow-up action plan to mitigate risks in supply chains with partner participation.
