The world of trade is complex and everchanging, but DSV is here to help you navigate. Our trade experts are ready to work with you to discover the best ways to classify, value, and validate your goods to lower your costs as well as ensure correct documentation and process.

Classification Services

More than 170 countries use the Harmonized Coding System for classifying goods for customs purposes. Understanding how to interpret individual HTS schedules is essential in determining the duties for your products and if they are eligible for preferential treatments. 

DSV Customs Brokerage team
 works with importers and exporters in this critical aspect of their international operations.  

Our subject matter experts can assist you with: 
  • Tariff classification (Import/Export, ECCN)
  • Valuation
  • Tariff engineering and duty minimization
  • Search of US Customs Rulings applicable to your goods
  • Applying to US Customs for a Binding Ruling of your own
  • Product Database validation 

Free Trade Agreement (FTA)  

Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) have proven to be one of the most effective ways to open foreign markets to U.S. exporters. Trade agreements reduce barriers to U.S. exports and protect U.S. interests and enhance the rule of law in the FTA partner country. The reduction of trade barriers and the creation of a more stable and transparent trading and investment environment make it easier and less expensive for U.S. companies to export their products and services to trading partner markets.

The U.S. currently has trade agreements with 20 countries  

Are you getting the most from Free Trade agreements on your imports/exports?

DSV’s trade experts help you understand the complexities of Free Trade Agreements and how they could lower your costs through:

  • Identify potential refunds on qualifying goods
