NAI is an active certified member of the Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) program, established after 9/11 to strengthen security at U.S. borders. NAI has implemented, maintained, and documented detailed security measures, policies, and procedures in accordance with CTPAT criteria. As a certified CTPAT member, NAI takes an active role in working with the United States government to combat terrorism and other criminal activities, including drug trafficking, human smuggling, and illegal contraband. A key side benefit to NAI customers is the assurance that NAI cargo and transportation methods are safe.
