CHICAGO August 3, 2020 – Gebrüder Weiss, the globally active transport and logistics company has announced the expansion of its import consulting program in the United States.

U.S. Customs applies a reasonable care standard to judge the compliance of import transactions. Failure to meet this standard could result in penal¬ties and extensive costs to correct violations. Gebrüder Weiss USA, and its team of licensed professionals, encourages clients to partner with them to carefully examine the compliance of their U.S. import process with a particular focus on critical areas such as;

● Tariff classification

● Invoice description of the merchandise

● Valuation

● Country of origin marking

● Anti-dumping and countervailing duty

● Intellectual property rights

● Other government agency requirements

● Record keeping

Additional services also include binding rulings, CTPAT certification, scope rulings, and duty drawback.

While the U.S. import process can undoubtedly be confusing to new importers, even experienced importers can be well served by a detailed review of the compliance of their import process. A comprehensive evaluation of this process is best handled outside of the day-to-day import clearance environment. A consultation between the client, who knows the details of the import transaction, and Gebrüder Weiss USA, the experts on Customs regulations and the Harmonized Tariff (HTS), can achieve the desired results.

“Do it once and do it right! At the onset, we provide clients with a solid foundation for compliant transactions with evidence of the exercise of reasonable care, as required by U.S. Customs, “said Mark McCullough, CEO of Gebrüder Weiss USA. “We pride ourselves on helping companies mitigate their exposure to compliance issues, while at the same time providing valuable education and tools to their organization,” he continued. “By expanding our import consulting services, we’re demonstrating our commitment to our customers so that they have a true partner in the U.S. import process.”
