Promote Today’s Technology Solutions Through the Business Connection Platform


U.S. Customs and Border Protection's (CBP) Business Connection (BC) is an online platform that allows technology companies to pitch their products and services to various CBP offices. Business Connection provides a streamlined way for technology corporations that do business in the United States to share their newest technology that aligns with CBP’s mission of protecting the American people, safeguarding the U.S. borders, and enhancing the nation’s economic prosperity.

CBP welcomes all U.S. technology companies to register on Business Connection and share their modern solutions.
