Mitigating the Impact of the 301 & 232 Tariffs

With import/export costs accounting for up to 20% of bottom-line expenses for many U.S. corporations, there is an urgent need for global supply chain professionals to reduce spend.  The new 301 & 232 Tariffs emanating from Washington, DC are having a huge impact on import costs on raw materials, components and finished products.
