On March 6th, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) released a Survey on the Costs & Savings of participating in C-TPAT. This report covers the 2011 C-TPAT Costs & Savings Survey (CSS), which was a follow-up to the 2010 Membership Survey. The 2011 CSS is a drill-down view of the detailed costs and savings experiences of a sample of C-TPAT members. The CSS was developed and executed separately from the larger membership survey that was done in 2010.
