ABSTRACT
This article reports that the tragedy of September 11 2001, has left its mark in all aspects of life for citizens across the world. Since the trade industry deals with the import and export of cargo between ports, the industry has gone through a series of changes. Most of these changes translate into one thing: added cost to local business. Extra security measures and other effects of the tragedy have meant more money has to be spent for importing and exporting goods. Sept. 11, 2001 changed how the government views security across the board. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) services have implemented many new protection policies. CBP established the National Targeting Center as the centralized coordination point for all of CBP's antiterrorism efforts.
