Rail News: Union Pacific Railroad

UP becomes third Class I to join U.S. Customs Service's anti-terrorism program


Union Pacific Railroad recently joined Burlington Northern Santa Fe and CSX Transportation as a member of U.S. Customs Service's Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) program.


C-TPAT encourages businesses to ensure the integrity of their security practices and communicate security guidelines to supply-chain business partners.


The program requires participants to analyze all areas of security, such as documents, information systems, employee and contractor identification, equipment and facilities.


U.S. Customs Service is seeking voluntary involvement from various international transportation supply-chain companies, including importers, licensed brokers, airlines, ocean carriers, railroads, air-freight consolidators and port operators.
