Webinar: Basics of Importing into the USA

Pacific Customs Brokers is hosting a webinar on the Basics of Importing into the USA. If you are a novice or you require some re-training on the physical movement of goods across the border, then this online event will be suited to you. The topics covered in this 60 minute overview will include parties involved in international trade, compliance considerations, completing accurate documentation, eligibility for NAFTA and other free trade agreements, and possible consequences of non-compliance.
