Current US trade actions are creating significant uncertainty for business and pushing supply chains onto the C-suite agenda for explanations and solutions. For months, businesses have focused on China and Section 301 tariffs, and special duties on Steel and Aluminum, with China tariff rates pushing up to 30% for many products. The European Union is also affected by US tariffs, and is considering EU subsidies in response.

What steps can your company take to minimize risk associated with escalating trade tensions and punitive duties? Join us for an informative 'Lunch & Learn' presentation on how you can be the hero and minimize customs duties by understanding key aspects of Customs valuation, tariff classification, and Country of Origin.  Meals and drinks will be provided onsite.

Date/Time: November 12th, 11:30 a.m. - 1:15 pm.
