The Commercial Operations of Customs and Border Protection (COAC) recently announced the kick off to their 2014 Trade Efficiency Survey. The survey will be open until Wednesday, July 23, 2014. Click here to access the survey.
COAC states that information gathered in this survey will be used to obtain facilitation priorities by industry, assess the economic impact of specific trade initiatives, and assist in creating metrics that explain the key benefits of partnerships with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and its Partner Government Agencies (PGA).
COAC is asking both importers, exporters, and their service providers to respond to this survey. This survey allows for multiple responses from the same entity. The survey consists of multiple choice questions that request information on a number of issues, including exam rates, estimated cost of doing business, time expenditures, satisfaction level with CBP and PGAs. The survey takes only 20 minutes to complete. Results will be shared in upcoming COAC meetings.
