The NAEC vision is to provide a model plan that can be implemented at every port to stop the exportation of stolen vehicle. This model includes verifying the validity of both vehicle and supporting documentation.  It also includes methods of identifying vehicle hidden inside containers without interfering in the daily commerce of the ports.

The mission of the NAEC is to bring together those entities that share a common goal of combating the exportation of stolen vehicles and to facilitate contacts for the exchange of information and ideas to achieve that goal.
