The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) took effect on July 1, 2020, replacing the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) which had been in place since 1994.
The USMCA retains most core NAFTA provisions, but with updates and revisions affecting industries and businesses with varying degrees of severity. Some businesses will notice hardly any differences at all, while others, most notably the automotive sector, will be significantly affected. The new trade agreement also modernizes the North American trade relationship, with new provisions for digital trade and intellectual property, and incentives directed at small/medium-sized businesses.
Join Livingston International and Purolator International for this webinar to gain an understanding of the specifics of the USMCA, and opportunities for U.S. businesses in the Canadian market.
You will learn:
• Specific regulatory and policy implications, including the elements of NAFTA left in place, new USMCA provisions, documentation/compliance procedures and recordkeeping requirements.
• E-commerce/Retail opportunities resulting from a change in Canada's de minimis threshold value, and relaxed customs requirements for low-value shipments.
• Potential duty savings achieved by rerouting U.S. imports arriving from Asia or Europe.
• Lifting of the "cloud of uncertainty" that hung over the U.S./Canada trade relationship in recent years.
• Revised automotive requirements, intended to boost sales among U.S. parts suppliers.
• Provisions designed specifically to encourage small businesses to engage in cross border trade.
You will leave the webinar with a greater understanding of the USMCA's key provisions, along with insight about how your business could—and should—take advantage of these new opportunities.

Speed. Flexibility. Simplicity. It’s no wonder that shippers and carriers love drop and hook. In fact, the majority of US Fortune 500 shipments are sent through preloaded drop trailers.
The challenge with drop has been one of scale. Traditional drop services are limited to specific lanes and regions, and when demand surges, they can’t flex up to accommodate the additional volume.
In 2017, Convoy Go became the first drop-and-hook service that let carriers of all sizes, including owner-operators, haul power-only loads. This unique, modern approach to drop offered shippers flexible, nationwide capacity with the reliability they’d come to expect from asset-based carriers.
Over the last three years, technological advancements have further differentiated modern drop-and-hook services like Convoy Go. These services provide unmatched scale, flexibility, and visibility through the use of machine learning and automation.
