    General Session

    Tariffs and Sanctions Under the Biden Administration

    The Biden administration eventually may ease up on Section 232 steel tariffs and quotas, particularly those restricting trade with traditional US partners and allies, but there is little sign of easing when it comes to Section 301 tariffs and their effects on US-China trade. Navigating escalating trade sanctions requires ever more diligence on the part of US shippers and logistics service providers, while US Customs and Border Protection continues to closely scrutinize imports for potential antidumping and countervailing duties. Managing these risks greatly complicates project and breakbulk shipping. Kathy Canaan, global director of trade compliance for Fluor Corp., will discuss the twists and turns of managing tariffs and sanctions in 2021.
