On the Borderline

The June edition of Logistics Management magazine includes a very informative article by John Schulz. Cross-Border Update illustrates the growth and complexities of trade among the three North American nations.

Along with information about USMCA and CTPAT, the author advises that in-house logistics teams must be properly trained on how to develop and maintain a classification matrix for commodities that are shipped across borders. This matrix should include Harmonized Tariff Schedule number, Schedule B number, Export Control Classification Number (ECCN), Export License Authorization, and Country of Origin, as well as any other pertinent customs data.
