FedEx welcomes US Customs streamlining

[ February 21, 2014   //   ]

FedEx Express said on 20 February that it welcomed recently announced efforts by the Obama administration to modernize and streamline US customs clearance procedures. The express carrier said that the 2016 deadline for establishing a single electronic portal for data necessary for the US government to clear exports and imports would slash red tape.

FedEx’s president, international, Michael Ducker, said: “These latest steps by the US will cut bureaucracy and time-consuming paperwork for our customers, especially the small and medium businesses. We look forward to further trade facilitation efforts now in the process of being negotiated with key US trading partners.”
