U.S./International Customs Practices Under Review as eCommerce Volume Surges

Next year, global eCommerce shipments are expected to top 100 billion units, including 13 billion set to arrive at the United States border.

This has resulted in a significant strain on world customs agencies, including U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Not only are customs resources stretched in trying to expeditiously review each shipment but an alarming number of individuals are using the surge in small-shipment volume to ship drugs and other types of contraband across international borders.

A new white paper from Purolator International, U.S./International Customs Practices under Review as eCommerce Volume Surges, provides an overview of efforts — both in the U.S. and at the international level — to develop international standards to manage the surge in eCommerce volume.
