Border and Port of Entry Transit of In-Bond Container (Draft)

Related Needs

Stakeholders expressed a number of needs specifically related to reducing border and port transit times including:

Current Environment

The Current Environment is primarily focused on supporting border security needs, with freight transportation system efficiency for in-bond shipments generally not considered as a priority:

Smart Corridor

The Smart Corridor should take advantage of recent development in RFID and sensors to create a modernized border environment that can result in swifter transits by safe and legal trucks, including:

The above approach also provides for the truck and container to be continually tracked across the Smart Corridor (through deployed readers), which will provide significant data points for the ATIS; additionally all of this information, when integrated in the ATIS, will provide drivers crossing the border with real-time delay information superior to what is available today.
