2014-02-11 23:18:38 - SecureOrigins presented at an AAEI conference in California in order to update compliance officers on the status of Project-21 and SecureOrigins integration border wide.
TORRANCE, CA – The American Association of Importers and Exporters (AAEI) invited SecureOrigins to assist the West Coast Regional Seminar help at the Toyota Museum in Torrance, CA to introduce the SecureOrigins cross-border platform and disaster intelligence module capabilities.
At the annual AAEI Export Promotion and Global Trade Compliance conference, compliance and trade leaders from more than 50 companies gathered to discuss issues pertaining to export efficiencies, and hear from experts form the federal government. Participants included Assistant Secretary Allen Bersin from the Department of Homeland Security, the Port Director for L.A. Long Beach, and the Executive Director of the ACE office.
“We would like to thank Marianne Rowden, Executive Director of AAEI for the opportunity to present our platform and look
forward to continuing to partner together to ensure the trade has the tools it needs for secure and efficient trade,” said Toby Spoon, President of Secure Origins.
Members of the SecureOrigins team are actively looking at establishing partnerships with various associations around the nation to communicate its Project-21 results that established new benchmarks for border inspection agencies through its real-time intelligent gathering system.
“In terms of metrics, CBP, Border Patrol, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the various departments of public safety, Mexican Customs and Canadian Customs simply do not have much data or metrics to produce benchmarks or measure efficiencies cross-border efficiencies. Further, they do not have any preemptive intelligence that reports real-time behavior of shipments prior to arrival to the ports of entries,” said John Rippee, Vice President of Operations.
In July 2013, the GAO issued a report that advised CBP to improve border wait times and produce outcome oriented performance measures to determine the extent to which the agency is facilitating trade. The Office of Management and Budget and GAO guidance recommend using outcome-oriented measures to promote accountability for results. In the absence of such measures, it is difficult for the agency or others to gauge CBP’s progress in meeting its stated goal of facilitating trade.
