A recent article on the Procurement Leaders Network had a very shocking statistic: only 52% of businesses look at customs duties as a potential area for cost savings (according to a recent research survey by Deloitte). Considering that misclassifications alone cause most companies to overpay duties by 7% to 11%, this presents a substantial savings opportunity for any company that imports more than ten million dollars a year. Furthermore, better utilization of Free Trade Agreements can often significantly reduce, if not eliminate, duties on millions of dollars of merchandise. Many companies have doubled and tripled their free trade duty savings (and saved millions of dollars) just through FTA management. And then there’s Free Trade Zones that can save you even more! With a little Trade Visibility, you can save a lot of money. So why aren’t you?
