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
This informative two part webinar series begins with an overview of the obvious and not-so obvious causes of increased Customs scrutiny and the ways that CBP will approach shippers with issues. The presentation then provides some concrete strategies for you to respond to Customs inquiries and general procedures to use for maintaining compliance.

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.

2015 Regulatory Outlook
Amy Magnus, Deringer’s Director of Compliance and Customs Affairs, provides a comprehensive perspective of the trade’s 2015 regulatory environment. In this one-hour webinar, Ms. Magnus discusses insight about new trade programs, CBP’s areas of focus, and compliance initiatives on the horizon. Shippers can expect to use this important information to prepare for changes in the new year. Topics covered include ACE transition, Trusted Trader Program, Centers of Excellence and Expertise (CEEs), Audits, and ADD/CVD Targeting.

An ACE Update
In 2015, many functions of US Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) will become mandatory, including manifest, release, and summary filings. By the following year, ACE will become the only method for filing CBP cargo processes. This webinar provides an in-depth perspective of how ACE is shaping how the trade—shippers, logistics providers, and the government—conduct their business. This ACE update will help you prepare for the future of importing and exporting.

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.

Intro to CBP's Centers of Excellence & Expertise (CEEs)
Deringer is proud to present a dynamic new webinar introducing U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Centers of Excellence and Expertise (CEEs). Hosted by industry veteran Amy Magnus, Deringer’s Director of Customs Affairs & Compliance, and Elena D. Ryan, CBP’s Director of the Transition Team for the Centers of Excellence and Expertise, this hour-long overview covers the scope, location, and future pursuits of the CEEs within the US and introduces participants to the process of applying to become a CBP Trusted Trader organization, with direct access to CEE centralized processing

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.
