The Harmonized Tariff Schedule ( HTS ) of the United States can be challenging to research depending upon the product or commodity. Efforts to determine the proper classification(s) for U.S. Customs entry can be a daunting task.
Some people or companies utilize some form of automated software designed to address this need. However, incomplete information, lack of detailed description(s) and / or failure to provide a full identification can produce totally incorrect classifications as much as 50 % of the time. Such errors can be the source of costly mistakes with additional Customs duties, delays in cargo release and, in some cases, U.S. CBP penalties.
The experienced import staff of our company is highly qualified to ask the proper questions as we have been doing for import clients for decades. Having the appropriate HTS classification is essential to having a smooth importing process.
