Leverage Free Trade Agreement
Governments are establishing Free Trade Agreements (FTA) to facilitate product flows and international business services. In addition to bilateral agreements, countries are setting up multi-lateral agreements to form trade clusters to facilitate regional growth. Examples of such regional FTA are the NAFTA, ASEAN and ASEAN+1 agreement.
APL Logistics can help you take advantage of FTA. Through HS codes, routing and tariff saving analysis, network design and implementation, document management and problem solving, your total supply chain cost can be reduced by saving on your import duties. Our expertise covers direct shipment and regional distribution analysis.
Staying current with evolving global trade requirements can be a challenge for any organization. APL Logistics’ trade expert can provide customized training and seminars for your organization to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.

In Asia, we are experts in customs requirements given our years of experience operating in the region and our strong relationship with local customs.
