Anti-dumping

In a unanimous vote on May 19, 2015 (with one commissioner not participating) the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that the establishment of a U.S. industry is not materially retarded by reason of imports of 53-foot domestic dry containers from China that the U.S. Department of Commerce had previously determined are subsidized and sold in the United States at less than fair value. As a result of the USITC's negative determinations, no anti-dumping or countervailing duty orders will be issued on imports of these products from China.
The case began on April 23, 2014, when Stoughton Trailers LLC filed petitions seeking the imposition of countervailing and anti-dumping duties on 53-foot domestic dry containers imported from China. The first step in this investigation was the U.S. International Trade Commission's preliminary injury determination, which reached an affirmative determination at that stage on June 6, 2014.
