How Many Hats Do You Wear? A Complimentary Webinar.

by Roanoke Trade

How Many Hats Do You Wear?

Do you operate as a Domestic Freight Forwarder or Property Broker or perhaps both? Wearing multiple hats is not an uncommon practice but it’s important to recognize the distinct characteristics of each operation so you are properly licensed.

FMCSA Operating Authority dictates the type of operation a company may run, the cargo it may carry and the level of insurance/financial responsibilities a company must maintain. If not properly licensed your company could be subject to government fines, personal liability allegations (including principles) and your insurance coverage could be compromised.

Join us on Tuesday, April 17th at 1pm CT for this one hour complimentary webinar and earn NEI CCS/CES credit as applicable. You should attend if you are an owner, operations manager or risk manager for a freight forwarder, property broker or a carrier operation.

Virtually all goods, whether hand carried or cargo-shipped, may be covered by ATA Carnets.

As a Priority Trade Issue, CBP’s goal is collect the proper amounts, which includes to detect and deter circumvention of the ADD/CVD law, and to liquidate final duties timely and accurately, while at the same time facilitating legitimate trade.

  • ADD/CVD Issues from a CBP Standpoint
  • ADD/CVD Underwriting Concerns – A Brief Refresher
  • ADD/CVD Complicating the Importer/Broker/Surety Equation
