Technology Deployment Strategy

Border management agencies are continually asked to respond to evolving trade and travel dynamics. The right technology deployed in the right environment is essential for efficient, 21st century border management. Responsible investment in the most effective and applicable technologies requires comprehensive understanding of: the operating environment of the procuring agency, best practices employed around the world, and current and emerging border management technologies.

Capacity Building & Program Development

Trade and travel are evolving. Increased competition in a global economy demands increased efficiency for both public and private sector entities across the world. Facilitating trade and travel in a heightened security environment requires innovative capacity building strategies to support economic growth.

While often viewed as standalone solutions, infrastructure and technology investments alone do not minimize cargo and passenger wait times at the border. Authorities need to optimize their resources by investing in programs, processes, and right-sized technology that will increase their capacity to efficiently enable cross border trade and travel.

  • Authorized Economic Operator (AEO)
