Techship will begin billing section 301 tariffs to our US customers
Techship will, from September 1 2019, bill Section 301 tariff charges to our US customers for orders with a total value of $800 or more. The tariff charges only affect products that originate from China and range from no current charge up to 25% on our price depending on the products’ US Customs category code (HTS code). If Techship is the Importer of record (IOR), our tariff recovery fee paid to US Customs for shipments imported into the US will be charged to our customer. If import fees are to be paid by our customer, i.e the customer is the IOR, the tariff recovery fee will be charged directly from the US Customs or your freight forwarder.
Our team is working closely with our suppliers to understand impacted product identification and to give our customers information as early in the quoting process as possible.
Techship will continue to monitor the USTR’s implementation of the Section 301 tariff lists, along with its impact on our supply chain, and adjust our recovery charge, if and when appropriate. If you have any questions on our invoicing process, please contact us to discuss.
