The Logistics Department at the EnerSys global headquarters establishes transportation procedures for all EnerSys North America companies.
The Logistics Department group selects and manages the surface, air and ocean transport providers along with the international forwarding agents and customs brokers. In addition, the Logistics group provides transportation cost quotes, hazardous materials and trucking regulatory guidance, customs related support and directs the freight payment process, cargo claims and shipment routing guides. The Logistics Department is also responsible for ensuring the integrity of all U.S. bound shipments in accordance with the U.S. Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) program created by Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
EnerSys is a certified participant of the C-TPAT program, a partnership between the trade community and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), designed to establish supply chain security processes to prevent terrorist devices and other contraband from entering the global supply chain.
EnerSys recognizes that our international business partners and supply chain logistics providers play a key role in our continued success and we depend on the prompt delivery of parts from around the world. We encourage suppliers and providers to integrate security into their processes from start to finish.
To better understand this program and its best practices for supply chain security, please review the resources below.
