Lambert-St. Louis International Airport and a Texas company have received preliminary approval to develop a “dual customs” cargo facility that would be capable of clearing goods moving to and from Mexico. Brownsville International Air Cargo Inc. is now preparing necessary studies and applications for the facility at Lambert. It would house U.S. and Mexican customs operations.
The idea of a dual customs facility is that it would roll out as an air cargo pilot project, but eventually it would be expanded to rail and ground transport. The ultimate goal is to “facilitate trade” between the United States and Mexico.
