Streamline cargo security

BIFA is calling on the government for a more radical, streamlined approach to border security for cargo movements by reducing the number of agencies needing to be co-ordinated.

In its response to Gordon Brown’s recent announcement of a review of the UK’s border security arrangements, it said it would encourage the government to look beyond people and include cargo movement through our air and seaports in its plans.

It should also extend its plans to include all government departments and agencies with a ‘control at border’ remit.
