Webinar Descriptions

Canadian ACI eManifest
ACI (Advance Commerical Information) is similar but not identical to the US ACE eManifest program. It enables the Canadian government to use electronic pre-arrival information to perform risk targeting analysis to identify possible harmful shipments, and allows low-risk shipments to move more quickly and efficiently. This webinar will provide you with an overview of the timelines for implementation, required data elements and resources for getting started.

Keeping Out of Customs Crosshairs (Part 2)
After you have been targeted by Customs for extra scrutiny, what can you do about it? This webinar is a follow up to Keeping out of Customs Crosshairs Part 1, which examined the reasons why Customs could be targeting your business for increased scrutiny. In this presentation, you’ll learn specific strategies for what to do if this happens to you. Topics covered include: specific protocol for CF28 and 29 notices, action steps for phone calls and in-person CBP visits, procedures for dealing with multiple unexplained inspections, penalty/liquidated damage notices, and notice of audits.

Keeping Out of Customs Crosshairs (Part 1)
US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is tasked with securing our nation through the monitoring of international trade. This webinar provides examples of what actions can cause targeting by CBP, what you can do to avoid being targeted, and why this should matter to you. You will also learn the steps that CBP officers use in the review process. Topics covered include: How does the CBP review process work? Why is it important to not call undue attention to yourself? What factors may subject an importer to closer scrutiny? How does the use of reasonable care minimize your risks? What are the components of reasonable care? What other factors increase or decrease scrutiny?

Fun with Valuation
US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) holds shippers responsible for providing a proper declared value of goods imported into the US. Determining value can be complicated, especially if the sale transaction involves multiple parties, assists, or discounts. However, understanding the correct value of your goods may be the first step to avoiding hold-ups and penalties. This webinar will provide an overview of the basics of valuation, with an examination of 2014 CBP rulings providing real-world examples.

Tackling Consolidation Tactics
An understanding of international cargo consolidation options provides shippers with strategic sourcing advantages. This webinar opens with a brief history of containerization--without which there would be no consolidations. A synopsis of various freight consolidation approaches help elucidate tactics that importers and exporters use when shipping full container loads is not a cost effective or timely possibility.

The Basics of Importing
This informative webinar covers all of the basic steps to consider when importing goods into the US. A clear and instructive description of the importing process is presented in a step-by-step manner, including the following: Importer responsibilities and relationship with CBP, common acts and agreements, security programs, shipping terms, documentation, best practices, and exams, seizures, and penalties.

Incoterms® Advantage
Incoterms are an important aspect of international sales, and it is vital to understand the implications of using each term.  They clearly define which party is responsible for the costs, risks, delivery, and obligations associated with goods en route to their overseas or domestic destination. Knowing your Incoterms, and carefully negotiating the right one for you, means having greater control over your supply chain.
