Border Port Planning
Globalization has put pressure in customs operations to keep up with the border crossing by people and products. Even though in some cases the number of crossings might not statistically grow much, there’s a negative loop effect triggered by increased security policies and scrutiny, which negatively affects wait times and in turn might limit the amount of border crossings. In other words, as wait times increase it’s expected that less people and products will move across borders. To keep the economic and cultural relationship among countries, the strategic planning of border ports of entry is extremely important as it assures capacity without sacrificing security.
