As of June 18, 2019 MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company has been suspended from the Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism program (CTPAT). At this time, the suspension period is set to last for 90 days. The suspension comes as a result of this week’s incident, where shipping vessel MSC Gayane was discovered to be carrying over 16 tons of cocaine. U.S. Customs has not provided any additional information at this point regarding the status of MSC’s CTPAT certification and is continuing its investigation.
For any questions regarding this incident, please contact your Mohawk customer service representative.
