WTTC Dinner Meeting on ATA Carnets in Baltimore

by Roanoke Trade

The Women’s Traffic & Transportation Club, Inc. cordially invites you to an upcoming dinner meeting on ATA Carnets: Understanding Temporary Imports and Exports with the ATA Carnet

An ATA Carnet is an international customs document that provides duty-free customs clearance for temporary imports and exports into over 100 countries. ATA Carnet simplifies temporary entry by eliminating the need to post a temporary import bond or file a duty drawback. Virtually all goods, whether hand carried or cargo-shipped, may be covered by ATA Carnets. This informative workshop, presented by Amanda Barlow, will cover:

  • USCBP clearance of both U.S and foreign ATA Carnets to ensure the proper execution of the ATA Carnet for your customers
  • How to avoid the misuse of an ATA Carnet and how to resolve any errors before they become a Customs claim, including the right color coded pages and dealing with erroneous stamps
  • Best practices to mitigate a Customs claim from USCBP or foreign Customs
  • Managing split shipments, partial shipments and transit operations
  • Replacing lost or stolen documents and managing theft of the goods while on ATA Carnet
  • …and more!

This event will be taking place on March 8, 2017 from 6-8:30pm at the Poplar Inn Restaurant, 7700 Wise Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21222. Register for this event today by emailing Stacey Hylenski at hylenski@verizon.net by March 3rd. We hope to see you there!

NEI Webinar – Customs Bond Insufficiencies and Ensuring you are Compliant With CBP Policy

by Roanoke Trade

Have you received a bond insufficiency notice for an importer client’s bond? Or, worse yet, has CBP deactivated a bond so no entries can be made by your client? CBP performs monthly bond sufficiency reviews of all continuous import bonds and if a bond is egregiously deficient, they will immediately render it insufficient.

Join Roanoke’s Vice President Colleen Clarke, alongside CBP’s Kara Welty and Bruce Ingalls, as they present this webinar on 2/15/17 at 1pm ET.

Register today for this complimentary NEI webinar and learn how you can avoid these situations which can be extremely costly for you and your importer clients. Current bond statistics and other issues related to revenue collection will also be reviewed. This event has been approved for 1 CCS Credit.
