Webinar: Don’t Be Blindsided by Customs Law & Import Regulations!

Posted by Julia Gorman on Thu, Mar, 15 2018 @ 10:00 AM

Customs laws and regulations are continuously changing. This challenges your ability to comply with labor regulations and imported product restrictions, making it increasingly easy to get blindsided by penalties at the border.

At the same time, changing trade regulations and enhanced inter-agency enforcement techniques are delaying the clearance time for sensitive imports. This results in longer lead times and higher costs associated with customs exams and storage fees. 

Join Amber Road’s Global Trade Academy as we tackle the changes and potential pitfalls for importers during our webinar, Your Shipment Was Stopped? Don't Get Blindsided By Customs Laws & Regulations! It will broadcast live on Tuesday, March 20th at 2pm EDT.
