Import tariff

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced a reclassification ruling in the May 6, 2015 edition of Customs Bulletin and Decisions that resulted in a significant lowering of the tariff applicable to self-propelled modular transporters. Self-propelled modular transporters as other self-propelled trucks had previously been classified under HTSUS subheading 8704.23.00 and subject to a 25% duty, but CBP has ruled that they may be reclassified under HTSUS subheading 8427.20.80 and thus duty-free. Canada and the United Kingdom are the principal suppliers of this product.
