The article discusses the challenges concerning the substandard security implemented in other countries in terms of shipping goods. According to the author, one of the largest gaps in the shipping industry in the U.S. and other nations is the lack of robust standards that reach across the borders the way the world of international trade stretches across countries. He mentions that the U.S. State Department must be working with the Department of Homeland Security to solve the problems related to substandard security.
