Port security and inspection of the containers is a huge issue to national security. Why not inspect them all? In the private sector more and more companies are relying on their vendors to perform the role of quality assurance and inspect one hundred percent of their orders. Then the vendor has to provide certified test reports and certificates of compliance to the company buying the products. Why can’t we put these same rules in place when it comes to our ports and the containers coming into the country?
It makes far more sense to push the majority of the cost of inspection back onto the people that are shipping the containers into this country than our country trying to do it all here. Spot checking here and in the ports overseas to make sure the inspections are being done will be far less costly too.
