Sobel’s focus remains on compliance |

NEW YORK, November 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Competition remains fierce. Success often depends on compliance at every step of the process. Imagine if your products are held before entering the country due to non-compliance. Your business will have to deal with unhappy customers and additional costs due to the delay, which will negatively impact your business bottom line. Current laws have become strict and there is no room for error. In addition to outlining the current and future compliance environment in logistics, Sobel’s Regional Compliance Manager, Sally T.Rosalesshared his thoughts on some of the compliance issues today.

Sobel’s goal remains compliance. Working with a qualified logistics company keeps you compliant with customs laws.

The COVID-19 pandemic has hit logistics companies hard, but today the supply chain is thriving with the emergence of many current trends that are expected to dominate the industry.

  • Micro-warehouses and last mile logistics will focus on placing inventory closer to the customer in densely populated urban areas to provide efficient and fast last-mile deliveries and better meet same-day and next-day demand.
  • Increased demand for 3PL and 4PL services due to the rise of e-commerce. They will offer cost-effective and faster models to meet demands.

Why is it important to stay compliant in logistics?

Exit: “The consequences of non-compliance are clear, but there are other issues that can arise that are less direct than the punitive measures countries adopt. If your items are held up at the border due to non-compliance compliance, they don’t get into the hands of the buyer, which means delays, extra costs and frustrated customers.”

As 2022 draws to a close and 2023 dawns, many predictions have been made, including:

  • Rising freight prices will remain a problem due to vessel charter rates and continued port congestion.
  • Global labor shortages due to layoffs and lockdowns will persist.
  • Continuous automation will emphasize artificial intelligence (AI).
  • Sustainable maritime transport will develop to reduce the carbon footprint.
  • A significant increase in the use of IoT and blockchain technology to create greater compliance with a strong focus on updates throughout the journey for businesses and consumers.

Rewrite of USC Policy 111

Change is positive when it promotes forward movement. However, it’s going to take some time to get familiar with the language and the procedure, but if we follow the book, it shouldn’t prove too difficult.

What do you think of the new rewrite USC rule 111:

Exit: Sometimes change is good, especially when change drives you forward. It will take time to get familiar with the language and the procedures, but if we follow the book, it shouldn’t be that difficult.
