Transworld recognizes that a safe and secure supply chain is critical to keeping America safe. That's why we are C-TPAT Tier II Validated by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Established after the 9/11 attacks, C-TPAT is a voluntary government-business initiative that strengthens overall international supply chain and U.S. border security.
