UPS Supply Chain Solutions
Trade Consulting

In many cases the proliferation of international trade agreements, meant to simplify and expedite trade between countries, has increased the complexity of importation and exportation. UPS helps clients understand processes imposed by trade agreements in order to take advantage of the benefits that these agreements can bring and to avoid penalties associated with non-compliance. We closely monitor changes in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), and a host of others.

Preferential duty rates, customs clearance and entry processes, as well as licensing requirements often vary by country. We offer advice and information on these differences to help you plan your operations accordingly. Whether you're trading across borders in North America, Europe, or the Asia-Pacific countries, we can help you understand bilateral and multilateral trade agreements and the processes involved.

Our trade consulting* services include:

  • Trade agreements (APEC, GSP, NAFTA, etc.)
  • Country of Origin and preferential treatment qualifications
  • Country-specific customs processes
  • Import licenses and quotas
  • Export licenses and restrictions

* Provided by UPS Trade Management Services, Inc.
