The Upcoming Electronic Logging Devise Mandate

The latest electronic logging device mandate will most likely affect more than truck capacity that is available to shippers. The mandate will take place Dec and will make inventories harder to move quickly and “stickier.” This would ultimately tighten warehousing space.

Duty Drawback FAQ
by David Verkaik, VP of Drawback Development 10/17

What is Duty Drawback? Are you eligible for drawback refunds?


The New Duty Drawback Law
New Rules for Unused Merchandise Substitution Drawback
TFTEA - The Trade Facilitation and Enforcement Act of 2015

December 2017 by David Verkaik, VP of Drawback Development

As I mentioned in a previous article, beginning on February 24, 2018, drawback claimants will be able to file Unused Merchandise Substitution Drawback (Unused Substitution) claims by matching the imported goods to the exported goods by the HTS number at the 8-digit level. Currently an Unused Substitution claim is done by matching part numbers or composition specifications.
