The Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) was created by the World Customs Organization to classify goods that are shipped internationally. An HTS code is a 10-digit classification that determines a commodity’s duties and reporting requirements. If your business regularly participates in international trade, you must assign the proper HTS code to the goods being shipped.
As Your Cargo Concierge, here at A Customs Brokerage, we focus on providing industry-leading customs brokerage services, including helping our partners accurately classify their goods for shipment. Classification errors can lead to shipment delays, additional costs, and penalties, so let us assist you in this process.
HTS classifications are very important for businesses that regularly trades goods internationally. These codes determine the tariff or duty for the goods, and they also help track international trade statistics.
To accurately classify your goods, it’s important to answer a few key questions:
- What is the product?
- What is the product’s intended use?
- What is the item made of?
- What is the standard name for the item?
- Country of Origin?
At A Customs Brokerage, let our professional customs brokers assist you with the classification of your goods to ensure accuracy, allowing you to free up your time to spend on other aspects of your business.
