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.

LM Group News Editor Jeff Berman recently conducted a wide-ranging interview with Bobby Harris, President and CEO of non asset-based 3PL BlueGrace Logistics about various aspects of the freight transportation market.

It’s small, but senior brass at YRC Worldwide will take it. After nearly seven years of continuing losses in excess of $2.6 billion, the parent of the nation’s second-largest LTL carrier posted a narrow net profit in the third quarter ended Sept. 30.

As was the case for the second quarter, third quarter earnings results for publicly-traded less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers are again strong. Signs of solid earnings results from carriers that have posted earnings to date include tonnage increases, gains in weight per shipment and average daily shipments, higher yield, and revenue per hundredweight.

While the holiday season is known to bring good tidings and cheer to all, it may also come with another thing that is not so pleasant: higher rate freights. That was the thesis of a commentary written by Mark Montague, industry pricing analyst and chief market-watcher for DAT, a Portland, Ore.-based subsidiary of TransCore.
