Cargo Security Summit
Post summit report
Since September 11, 2001, the cargo security landscape has shifted significantly. With a primary focus on counterterrorism, there is an increasing need for layered, risk-based approaches for security that help facilitate the efficient flow of commerce throughout the supply chain. This shift has required increased collaboration across U.S. government agencies and importers to establish a cooperative approach to trade that mitigates U.S. security threats. However, this collaborative effort is complicated by the complexity of the cargo supply chain and the diverse nature of its actors.
This report highlights the themes being discussed by today’s leaders in the cargo security mission, including a view of the collaborative work already underway to enhance individual and shared cargo security efforts, an analysis of the challenges faced, and a look forward to the future of a risk-based, intelligence-driven vision for supply chain security.
The topics addressed included:
- Cargo security policy and oversight
- Trade facilitation and industry collaboration
- Global and domestic supply chain implications
- Bob Jacksta, Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP
- Norman Montgomery, Deloitte Consulting LLP
