Unified Cargo Processing Implemented in Rio Grande City

A new program allowing officials from the United States and Mexico to inspect trucks at the same time was implemented at the Rio Grande City-Carmargo International Bridge in Rio Grande City, TX. Dubbed Unified Cargo Processing, the program means cargo trucks are inspected only once – before they cross the bridge/border.

The process is a collaboration between U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Mexico’s Tax Administration Service (SAT). Agents of both countries inspect the trucks at once, which eliminates duplication of effort. The RGC port is the first in the Rio Grande Valley to initiate the program, and the second in Texas, behind Laredo.

The CBP/SAT partnership means elimination of unnecessary delays, while maintaining border security, according to RGC Port Director David John Gonzalez.
