TEXAS - Texas Wide Open for Business has released the 2015 U.S. Ports of Entry in Texas report.

Ports of Entry are officially designated areas at U.S. land borders, seaports, and airports which are approved by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

There are 328 official ports of entry in the U.S. and 13 pre-clearance offices in Canada and the Caribbean.

Texas currently has 29 official U.S. ports of entry, more than any other state, according to the CBP website.

At Ports, CBP officers or Port employees accept entries of merchandise, clear passengers, collect duties, enforce the import and export laws and regulations of the U.S. federal government, and conduct immigration policy and programs.

Ports also perform agriculture inspections to protect the nation from potential carriers of animal and plant pests or diseases that could cause serious damage to the nation's crops, livestock, pets, and the environment.

See Texas Ports of Entry 2015 for the full list and report. Also see Texas Port of Entry 2015 under Infrastructure under Market Research data.
