Refer to the company you selected in SLP1.

Discuss the security issues (in addition to simple customs requirements) that your company must consider when transporting customers’ goods across international borders. Do the markets your company usually serves make these issues major or minor concerns? Are particular customers or types of goods more problematical than others? Explain and discuss. Make full use of resources.
