I am very happy with the service that I received from RW Freight Services when they dealt with my export to Norway. The booking process was very easy to complete and the goods were collected quickly after making the booking. I will certainly be using them again in the future.

I sent an email stating that some cargo was ready and within minutes I was contacted by RW Freight to arrange the collection, which happened the very next day. Overall I was very impressed with the whole shipment process and there were no issues that arose.

US may launch investigation into Chinese steel imports

Tags: , , ,


The Department of Commerce is expected to launch a formal investigation into whether Chinese steel companies are shipping steel through Vietnam to avoid U.S. import tariffs.
The decision to investigate, follows a complaint in September from U.S. steelmakers, and is an escalation of U.S. efforts to stop a glut of China-made metal imports from flooding U.S. markets. The inquiry could result in new import tariffs on steel imported from China via Vietnam, under rules designed to prevent such a tariff-evading practice, which is known as circumvention.

U.S. steel producers alleged in their complaint that Chinese steelmakers have shipped metal to Vietnam, made enough changes to it that they could then classify it as Vietnamese and then exported it to the U.S. under the lower tariffs charged on Vietnamese steel.

At the heart of the issue is whether the changes — for example adding zinc to make it corrosion-resistant — fundamentally alter the steel enough to make it essentially a brand new product that is “Made in Vietnam.”
