Expand your horizons with customs and international trade know-how
Any professional involved in the cross-border buying or selling of goods is touched by trade compliance considerations. Whether employed in supply chain operations, planning, procurement, or finance, the failure to understand and plan around import/export regulatory requirements can lead to unanticipated costs and a lot of wasted time. Product delays, stock-outs, emergency shipments, additional warehousing costs, and customs penalties are all common consequences of compliance failures.
Many businesses operating in Asia Pacific choose to have their logistics service provider (“LSP”) handle customs formalities at overseas borders; relying on their operational knowledge and relationships with customs officials. However, LSPs often lack technical training and the legal responsibility for customs compliance remains with the owner of the goods. Most customs authorities expect informed oversight over LSPs and customs brokers.
