Zepol Corporation, a leading trade intelligence company, has released its latest trade data tool, ComplianceIQ.

According to spokesmen, this new product helps U.S. importers adhere to U.S. government import regulations.

Spokesmen added that ComplianceIQ is a “unique solution” to find all the information trade compliance professionals need in order to bring a product into the United States; it combines multiple import-compliance datasets within one online interface, which allows users to find the exact information they need, for specific HTS Codes.

“Users can view product classifications, search by binding rulings, tariffs, quotas, antidumping duties,” said Zepol’s CEO Paul Rasmussen.

He also said that this helps businesses identify the best import opportunities, and “reduces the risk of import penalties.”

ComplianceIQ’s information can be used to: classify a shipper’s own products; see how competitors classify their products; view applicable duties and quotas; and better demonstrate due diligence if an audit occurs.

Spokesmen said this tool also allows shippers to proactively monitor government updates via scheduled emailed reports.

Seasonally-adjusted (SA) for-hire truck tonnage in July headed up 1.3 percent on the heels of a 0.8 percent increase in June. The ATA’s not seasonally-adjusted (NSA) index, which represents the change in tonnage actually hauled by fleets before any seasonal adjustment, was 133.3 in July, which outpaced June’s 132.3 by 0.8 percent, and was up 2.8 percent annually.

Volumes for the month of July at the Port of Long Beach (POLB) and the Port of Los Angeles (POLA) were mixed, according to data recently issued by the ports. Unlike May and June, which saw higher than usual seasonal volumes, due to the West Coast port labor situation, July was down as retailers had completed filling inventories for back-to-school shopping.
