About this Webinar

Reducing landed costs is a north star for supply chain leaders and compliance managers who face increasing budgetary constraints. With the recent imposition of tariffs on steel, aluminum and China-origin goods, there has been heightened focus on the customs process and the hidden opportunities to realize real costs savings.

In many cases, businesses import manufactured goods into the U.S. that have already gone through at least one resale, generating a markup and increasing their customs valuation. However, the First Sale rule offers importers an opportunity to apply the valuation of a product pre-resale, reducing overall duties.

Join us to learn more about the advantages and risks associated with the First Sale rule. We will outline the specific requirements, examine possible hurdles and discuss best practices.

Who Should Attend?

Importers, individuals in manager and director positions from customs compliance and logistics departments, will benefit from this session.
