NTEA – The Association for the Work Truck Industry (NTEA) along with Dawson Strategic released a new Cross-Border Compliance Guide that was covered in an article from ConstructionEquipmentGuide.com on June 1, 2016.
NTEA represents nearly 1,800 companies that manufacture, distribute, install, sell and repair commercial trucks, truck bodies, truck equipment, trailers and accessories. Buyers of work trucks and the major commercial truck chassis manufacturers also belong to NTEA. The Association provides in-depth technical information, education, and member programs and services, and produces The Work Truck Show® and Green Truck Summit.
The Guide provides valuable information on the complexities and nuances of trade between Canada and the United States, tailored specifically to the vocational vehicle sector. Topics covered include: commercial vehicle importation and exportation, rules of origin, taxes and trade, legal risks, international treaties and conventions, customs classification and valuation, and more. “With the United States and Canada continuing to be each other’s most important trading partner, the efficient movement of commercial goods across the border is critical to both countries’ economies,” said Steve Carey, NTEA executive director.
Each and every day, 400,000 people cross the border, along with over $2 billion worth of goods and services (check out this infographic for more information). Many NTEA members in Canada and the United States move people, parts, and final products across the border on a regular basis and thus, an efficient and secure border matters to the work truck industry.
