Trade Terms Tuesday

Welcome to Trade Terms Tuesday! Each Tuesday, we will share three trade-related terms. In order to reach out to our diverse readership, we will try to provide one for exports, one for imports, and one for logistics/transportation. This week, we continue with the E’s.

Edge Protector
The edge protector is an angle piece fitted over the edge of boxes, crates, bundles and other packages to prevent the pres­sure from metal bands or other types from cutting into the package.

Explanatory Notes
The Explanatory Notes provide an explanation, chapter-by-chapter; heading-by- heading, of what CBP intends to be covered by the various sections, chapters, and headings in the HTSUS. Explanatory Notes are not part of the legal system; however, they do represent the views of classification experts.

The end-user is the person abroad that receives and ultimately uses the exported or reexported items. The end-user cannot be a forwarding agent or intermediary, but may be the purchaser or ultimate consignee.
