5-Step Risk Assessment

This is the fulcrum of your CTPAT membership and the most comprehensive way to demonstrate compliance with CTPAT requirements. The 5 Step Risk Assessment is a mandatory element, from mapping the cargo flow to documenting your assessment process.


Annual Security Profile (ASP) Monitoring

ASP upkeep is one of the critical elements in CTPAT membership. The portal is CBP’s window into your activities and processes. By working with you to maintain an active presence in the CTPAT Portal, the SGT team helps ensure you consistently maximize the benefits of your CTPAT program.


Documented Procedures

The CTPAT Compliance Manual is a comprehensive, step-by-step guide using specific procedure models to design and implement a security policy that addresses the unique framework of your business. This manual guides you toward implementing a company-wide CTPAT program that will meet all necessary CTPAT requirements.

Facility & Business Partner Security Assessments

Our assessment tools are a game changer. Continuous analysis of supply chain security is a must for the CTPAT program. Our tools give you peace of mind and provide the detailed reporting that allows for tangible supply chain insights. Validation of your partner's security practices has never been easier.

Post Incident Analysis

We assist in investigating misconduct — i.e. theft, fraud, loss, and smuggling — to determine the true nature and scope of the problem, should one be present. We tie all the various facts and documents together, coordinate with your Loss Prevention teams, and help you understand the impact on your business.


Facility & Supplier Audits — Online or On-Site

Different than our Security Assessments, The Facility & Supplier Audits are designed to go the extra mile with secure locations. Starting with the initial questionnaire and moving through to the final write-up, SGT experts come to your facility and lend a hands-on approach to implementation.


Certification Reinstatement

If your Company has found itself suspended or removed from the program, we are here to help. Our team has extensive experience with evaluation of current practices, suspension reasoning and reinstatement methods. We work directly with your SCSS to ensure that the Company is granted access back into the program with minimal economic impact.


Validation & Revalidation Support

During CTPAT Validation, it is vital to respond with written, implemented procedures for each CTPAT element. In addition to physically visiting your facility prior to the validation, our supply chain security consulting experts will also be present on the day of the validation to ensure a successful outcome.
