Companies in the automotive industry face special challenges regarding international trade.

  • Section 232 tariffs on aluminum and steel have a significant impact on the automotive industry, and goods subject to 232 tariffs may also be subject to AD/CV duties.
  • Changes in import structure and supply chain to avoid section 232 or 301 tariff impact may present unexpected AD/CV duty liability.
  • New free trade agreement provisions requiring minimum wages and upstream content in auto parts require extensive understanding and application to meet the rules of origin.
  • The general changes in trade policy are particularly challenging for importers with complex supply chains, as CBP is increasing its scrutiny of country of origin, transshipment, and tariff reclassification.
