Based in San Francisco, the center’s responsibilities include a majority of import and revenue-related activities for its industry. The center is the fourth to make its debut as part of the change in the way CBP processes trade in the 21st Century.
“The expansion of the AFT Center – and the selection of Eric Batt as its director – is a significant step forward for this important industry and for CBP,” said CBP Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske. “The Centers reflect the true spirit of collaboration between CBP and our trade stakeholders, reducing transactional costs, increasing consistency and predictability, and enhancing our ability to identify high-risk commercial importations.”
