Attend Importing 201 Webinar TodayExperience the advantages and benefits of attending a Global Training Center webinar
As an experienced importer your company has a grasp on the basic procedures to manage the importation of your goods into the U.S. It seems, however, that is all you do, manage the process. Despite your best efforts, the process doesn’t appear to get any better. You experience the same old errors and delays at the border and the specter of a Customs audit or other Customs enforcement is looming on the horizon. Perhaps your company is already an advanced importer yet U.S. CBP has designated you for an audit. How do you prepare for that audit? Better yet, what could you do to strengthen and prepare your company to withstand the scrutiny of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, regardless of the audit or enforcement form they use?
