If you are looking for answer of these questions, you would certainly benefit by attending this seminar:

  1. My companies imports are mostly done by FedEx or UPS and the shipper pays the freight. I don’t think I have to worry about any of this but my boss told me to attend anyway. Why do I need to worry about any of this if those companies are taking care of it?
  2. Our Customs Broker takes care of all this but I was told I have to learn more anyway. I just keep track of the broker invoices and make sure we only pay the invoices where we have the records, Isn’t that good enough?
  3. We have thousands of parts that need to be classified and there are only two of us doing the classifications. Can’t we just classify all the products in one product family the same?
  4. Our company makes lots of little changes to the products we import. There’s no way I can keep up so it’s ok to assume that these changes don’t affect the classifications, right?
  5. We always buy Ex Works. My broker always just uses the value on the invoice. That’s the transaction value so I think that’s the end of the problem, but I was told that there might be other things to worry about. How can I be sure that we’re doing it right?
  6. I know my company has business all over the world but no of the goods we import are from companies with the same company name. Unless it’s the same name, I think they aren’t related parties. In that case, I think we can just use the value on the invoice but can you help me be sure?
  7. We buy most of the products we sell from suppliers in the United States so we aren’t importing very much at all. None of our products have labels on them and sometimes our US customers ask for NAFTA Certificates of Origin. Can we just label the products and provided a certificate that says “Made in the US” since we bought the goods here?
  8. And more….

Orlando, FL, Local Attractions

Philadelphia, PA , Local Attractions

The Philadelphia Museum of Art sits majestically on a rise at the end of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The vast collections of this temple of art make it the third-largest art museum in the country, and an absolute must-see on the city's cultural circuit.

Among its impressive holdings in Renaissance, American, Impressionist and Modern art, some standouts include a great Rogier van der Weyden altarpiece, a large Bathers by Cezanne, a room devoted to Philadelphia's own Thomas Eakins, and Marcel Duchamp's notorious mixed-media Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors (The Large Glass), exactly as the dada master installed it.




With more than 3,600 acres of rolling hills and well-worn trails, Valley Forge is now a magnet for runners, bicyclists and picnickers as well as history buffs.

The vast expanse of open space links the Schuylkill River Trail to the Horse Shoe Trail, turning the park into a major hub in a 75-mile system linking Philadelphia to the Appalachian Trail.




The Liberty Bell has a new home, and it is as powerful and dramatic as the Bell itself. Throughout the expansive, light-filled Center, larger-than-life historic documents and graphic images explore the facts and the myths surrounding the Bell.




The 160,000-square-foot National Constitution Center explores and explains this amazing document through high-tech exhibits, artifacts, and interactive displays. The Kimmel Theater, a 350-seat star-shaped theater, features “Freedom Rising,” a multimedia production combining film, a live actor and video projection on a 360° screen to tell the stirring story of “We the people.”




An innovator in designing hands-on exhibits before “interactive” became a buzzword, The Franklin Institute is as clever as its namesake. Its eminently touchable attractions explore science in disciplines ranging from sports to space.

Highlights include The Sports Challenge, which uses virtual-reality technology to illustrate the physics of sports; The Train Factory's climb-aboard steam engine; Space Command's simulated earth-orbit research station; a fully equipped weather station; and exhibits on electricity.




The Barnes Foundation was created in 1922, a school originating with Barnes’ educational experimentation in his Argyrol (pharmaceutical) factory. Barnes and The Foundation’s first director of education, John Dewey, were interested in fostering cognitive development through new approaches to education, and in heightening critical-thinking and problem-solving skills through the study of art. Barnes, like Dewey, was actively engaged in development of an intellectual framework and educational philosophies and practices with many of the best artists and thinkers of his day.
