Unified Cargo Processing

Unified Cargo Processing is a joint program between the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Mexico's Tax Administration Service (SAT in Spanish).[1] The program was officially declared jointly by CBP Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske and SAT Administrator General Ricardo Trevino.[2] Under this program, CBP and SAT conduct joint cargo inspections. The program is intended to reduce wait and clearance times for cargo crossing the U.S. / Mexico border.
