These tariffs included: Section 232 Tariffs authorizing the President to impose tariffs on any goods which can impair the national security. Section 301 Tariffs which authorize the President to impose penalties on any country or commodity based on “unjustified, unreasonable or discriminatory trade practices.” These tariffs offer the potential for increasing employment in a select number of U.S. aluminum and steel mills. However, with these tariffs having gone into effect on trade with Mexico, Canada and countries in the European Union, they bring a negative downside that will certainly radiate to many industries and have already alienated some of the U.S.’s closest allies. The Chinese Tariff Trap In particular, components and products imported from China have been narrowly […]

Identifying qualified manufacturers who will fill manufacturing orders on time and on budget with low percentages of quality rejects is a critical component of the supply chain management process. While many companies look globally for ways to save money on production costs, it […]
