Am I sourcing from the Right Country?

If you are working in the international trade arena as an importer, customs broker, or providing transportation to inland destinations, you will benefit from this webinar by being able to identify some of the PTA (Preferential Trade Agreements) and FTA (Free Trade Agreements) countries. We will review some of the timelines for expiring agreements to help avoid being caught paying duties if you or your customer are ordering just at the expiration date. Even though we may have trade agreements, subsequent duties such as ADD (Anti-dumping Duty) and/or CVD (Countervailing Duty) may be imposed and create headaches for you and your customers.
