Posted Date: August 25, 2023

To Our Customers,

On August 22, 2023, we were notified by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency that Union Pacific’s Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) certification was temporarily suspended for a period of 90 days. We continue to work with our partners to ensure safety procedures are followed and that our certification is reinstated. Union Pacific’s security processes and measures remain fully in place to ensure the security of your shipments. We do not anticipate any delays from an Operations perspective due to the temporary suspension. Our long-standing safety and security procedures with the CBP remain intact.

Union Pacific plans to appeal the decision to temporarily suspend our CTPAT certification. As we wait for our certification to be reinstated, we continue to follow our approved security procedures for inspection at the borders and ports.

If you have any questions, please contact your Union Pacific representative.
