Join us for an informative seminar on all of the relevant information regarding shipment of products including guidance from actual ocean carriers, insurance providers, and trucking companies. Freight forwarders will provide information on the completion and interpretation of the correct documentation for export and import documents. Hear from U.S. Customs on how to comply with import and export regulations. In addition, learn how a Foreign‐Trade Zone could assist your business, defer various fees and duties or eliminate them altogether.
