A trusted traveler program might make sense for some of your travelers

Does your sales team visit with prospects all over the country?  Do you have a manufacturing plant in Mexico or do you find yourself frequently in Europe or Asia looking to find new markets for your products?  If this sounds familiar, you probably know the woes of making your way through security.  The requirements to pass through security are always changing and the process itself adds more time and stress to your journey.  The good news is that U.S. Customs and Border Protection has a few different traveler programs you can sign up for that can make traveling a little less stressful as it relates to passing through security.  Here is a brief overview of the programs available from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website:

Where You Can Travel
Travel internationally and move quickly through CBP processing
Travel between the U.S. and Canada
Travel into the U.S. from Mexico via land


The TSA Pre program expedites traveler screening through TSA security checkpoints.

If you’re not already familiar with these programs, speak with your TMC account manager to learn which program(s) would work best for you and your company. They can guide you in the right direction and make you aware of the requirements for enrollment.  You can also find more information at the U.S. Customs and Border Control website:
