Custom Administrations From Mexico and U.S. Improve Cargo Processing Along Border

Local News

U.S. Customs and Border Protection and tax administration services in Mexico, debuted the Unified Cargo Processing program. The purpose of this initiative is for customs administrations from the U.S. and Mexico to jointly process shipments at the border.

CBP Assistant Director Brad Skinner said, “Both customs administrations receive advanced information to determine if the goods are admissible into the respective country. If there is a need to inspect that inspection will only happen once. So that reduces duplicate redundant inspections. It also improves the speed and facilitation of trucks coming across the border.”

Nearly 500 trucks cross the U.S. – Mexico border in both directions each day. That number is expected to go up in the upcoming weeks due to produce season.
