Rising tariffs increase your risk of having an insufficient bond—and that can lead U.S. Customs to shut down your ability to import. On December 12, C.H. Robinson will be hosting a “Tariff Impact: Is Your Customs Bonds Sufficient?” webinar that will explain how a surety bond differs from an insurance policy. Additionally, the webinar will cover what can happen when a surety bond isn’t increased in a timely manner and what you can do now to monitor your import activity and assess your company’s risk.

In effort to support customers and carriers during this critical time, C.H. Robinson will be providing hurricane updates on a regular basis through its website.
