2019 TLA Annual Conference & CLTA Midyear Meeting

The Ties That Bind: Tariffs and Trade Wars and Their Impact on Supply Chains and the Transportation Industry

The NAFTA – an agreement now called the USMCA – has finally been renegotiated after a roller coaster year plus of negotiations amongst the three countries. The fate of USMCA now rests in the hands of legislators in the three countries for final approval. Meanwhile, the escalating rhetoric between allies and trading partners, rising tariffs and a virtual trade war with China have sent shock waves through global supply chains in key industries, triggering legal challenges in the United States and at the World Trade Organization. Where do we go from here? What can business do to weather such turmoil?
