A Duty to Save: Avoiding Missed Opportunities in Duty Management

Published June 2016

The American Shipper Report discusses these tools as part of a broader duty management strategy. The paper also examines:

  • How duty management impacts total landed cost calculations

  • Linking FTA and FTZ usage under a common visibility platform with other compliance and logistics functions

  • The need for technology to automate the administration and optimal use of duty management programs


Most global shippers know that free trade agreements (FTAs) and foreign trade zones (FTZs) are important duty management tools. But according to American Shipper research, only a fraction are fully utilizing these duty reduction vehicles. As discussions around sweeping trade pacts involving Asia, South America and Europe progress, it’s more important than ever to ensure you’re not leaving opportunities on the table.
