US Customs and Border Protection released on March 6 the 2011 C-TPAT Costs and Savings Survey (CSS). This report covers the 2011 C-TPAT Costs & Savings Survey, which was a follow-up to the 2010 Membership Survey. This year's survey activities were based on 1,488 respondents to the 2010 C-TPAT Membership Survey.

The final sampling frame of 1,433 partners for the 2011 CSS was divided in the same four categories:
1) Importers (515)
2) Carriers (443)
3) Service Providers (267)
4) Foreign Manufacturers (208)

The study shows that support for the program among C-TPAT members is strong however "there is room for improvement". The benefits of the program are hard to quantify.
