United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Ralph Basham announced today that CBP personnel will be stationed at the Ports of Barcelona and Valencia to work with their Spanish counterparts in targeting and prescreening cargo containers destined for the U.S. The deployment is part of CBP's Container Security Initiative (CSI). "This represents a major step forward for the protection of global commerce," said Commissioner Basham. "It also represents a step forward for trade facilitation. Our goal is to protect and promote the movement of trade." In addition to the ports of Barcelona and Valencia, CBP has officers stationed in Algeciras to target and prescreen cargo containers destined for the United States. CBP's cooperative efforts with the Spanish Customs officials at the port of Algeciras began on July 30, 2004.
