Tariff on Containers to USA

Although not much has changed since my last communication, many of our members have been contacting me to get an update on the proposed tariff on containers.  As was previously reported, HTSUS Subheading 8609.00.00 Containers, is one of 3,805 subheadings on the proposed product list having an approximate annual trade value of $300 billion.  The National Portable Storage Association (NPSA) is finalizing our written testimony to be submitted on June 17, 2019.  We have already notified The United States Trade Representative to appear in front of the Section 301 Committee at the U.S. International Trade Commission in Washington, DC.  We have been notified that our oral testimony will take place on June 17, 2019.  In our oral testimony, the NPSA will explain why imposing increased duties would cause disproportionate economic harm to U.S. interests, including small- or medium-size businesses and consumers.  After the last day of the public hearing, those testifying have seven (7) days to submit post-hearing rebuttal comments.
