CBP’s automated in-bond filings shift into gear

Interesting piece about automated customs bond filings by truckers.  It is starting to be a reality, but there are still issues like airports not accepting them, and adoption issues– resistance from truckers to using the online forms.

Later in the piece it points out that truckers must pay a fee for each transaction on the system.  For larger companies that isn’t maybe a big deal, but for independent truckers it’s one more nail in the coffin.
