This standard management tool provides a secure global supply chain by addressing the risks of narcotics, terrorism and merchandise smuggling. It is essential to protect companies, workers, and the community in general. In view that BASC is a preventive system, it aims to anticipate the risk of infiltration in our product shipments, which implies controlling operating processes, personnel, access, infrastructure, suppliers, and even customers.
