Our speakers shared insights into everything from deciphering Mexican Customs issues, finding help on the ACE Portal, and saving with duty drawback, to understanding how engineers are crucial for export compliance, dealing with mixed ITAR and EAR shipments, and minimizing the impact of potential export violations.
