Dated customs rules are costing freight forwarders millions of dollars a year in international trade
by reducing the efficiency at which they can move their products in and out of the United States. Moreover, it is continuous customs modernization that is necessary for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection to have the required resources to safeguard America’s borders while improving commerce imported and exported from the United States. The proposed Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015 is intended to reduce red tape and streamline the clearance process, allowing forwarders to deliver market goods at a faster rate. An updated version of this bill now awaits congressional approval and is set to be reviewed early January.
