As a leading global supply chain and transportation provider in the industry, Crane Worldwide Logistics continues to challenge the normal behaviors of a standard freight forwarder every day. By listening to the concerns of its clients, the need for a valued partner in international trade compliance to assist with timely customs clearance, risk management, and regulatory adherences was very apparent.
Crane Worldwide Trade Services, (CWTS), provides professional consulting services for companies who are creating new or strengthening existing international business and those with expanding supply chains in global commerce. CWTS’ professional services include audit and assessments, cost recovery and cost avoidance programs, such as free trade, duty drawback and Chapter 98/99 HTS provisions. Support services include classification (HTS, ECCN, ITAR), rulings, help desk and training for international traders. Compliance services include anticorruption and boycott prevention and supply chain security programs such as the US’ Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT), Canada’s PIP and the EU’s Authorized Economic Operator (AEO). CWTS offers screening of parties to protect against improper sales to listed parties and license determination for prevention of export violations. CWTS’ services are designed to support specific and strategic operational initiatives, as an overall project or need-to-need.
