ExportON!: Post COVID-19 Logistics in North America Under CUSMA

  • Wednesday, July 15, 2020
  • 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
  • Online

Sector: Automotive products

Market region: Mexico, Latin America and the Caribbean

Ontario remains committed to creating opportunities for our business community to help them remain strong and get back up and running during these unprecedented times. As a part of this commitment, the Government of Ontario is offering a series of free webinars to help reboot your export business.

The webinar will cover topics such as:

  • CUSMA best practices, trends and principles: how to avoid common pitfalls and compliance issues. While the new agreement takes effect on July 1, 2020, the implementation process may take much longer to roll out across all jurisdictions. Industries, including automotive, steel and aluminum, will be permitted extensions to ensure compliance with the stricter requirements.
  • Road Freight Market: how to overcome the logistical challenges brought out by COVID-19 related to the Canada-US and US-Mexico borders and capacity shortages.

While the content of the webinar won’t be specific to a particular industry, presenting partner Kuehene+Nagel brings considerable expertise to aerospace, automotive, fast moving and consuming goods, high tech, industrial products, and retail.

Confirmed speakers include:
