Freight forwarders have export compliance responsibilities, too. There’s the obvious, such as filing the EEI, but do you understand the interplay between mode of transport, port of export, and date of export? This is where I’ve seen the most penalties in the forwarding industry.
Also, when a freight forwarder handles routed export transactions, they assume considerably more risk, as export control laws can make them responsible for export license determination, and obtaining any needed export licenses.
I can help you reduce your filing violations, and minimize the risk in handling routed export transactions. Recent work includes:
- Training and establishing procedures for EEI filing
- Mitigation of EEI filing violations
- Export license requirement determination on routed exports
