Import/Export Compliance Benchmark Study: Turn and Face the Change

Published July 2017

American Shipper's 2017 Import/Export Benchmark Report researched the issues that are key for importers, exporters, retailers and manufacturers. Findings include:

  • 4 in 5 shippers would be impacted by NAFTA withdrawal
  • 85% of importers and exporters are concerned about border tax proposal
  • 50% of shippers say trade compliance impacts at least 5 other departments

Importers and exporters have been buffeted by constant shifts in U.S trade policy in the first half of 2017. The possibility of sweeping changes to U.S. free trade agreements and trade relationships with key nations has kept everyone on their toes. And it's clear these potential changes, even if they never reach fruition, are concerning to the majority of companies engaged in cross-border trade.
