cargo imports freight forwarding

In late May, the US Trade Representative’s Office (USTR) announced that it had reinstated over 350 expired tariff exclusions levied on Chinese imports dating back to the Donald Trump presidency. Though numerous, they were short of the 549 exclusions the USTR had previously considered.

According to the agency, the exclusions will be retroactive to October 12, 2021, expire on December 31, 2022, and cover a wide range of imports impacted by the 7.5 to 25% Section 301 tariffs.

What This Means for Importers

The reinstatement could work toward normalizing the trade flow between our two countries, benefitting US importers impacted by the tariffs. Products that qualify for the tariff exclusion include:

  • Industrial components (such as pumps and electric motors)
  • Certain car parts
  • Chemicals
  • Backpacks
  • Bicycles
  • Vacuum cleaners
  • And other consumer goods
