ABSTRACT
The author of this report aims to give an overview of the customs issues within supply chain management. Customs authorities, by administering and supervising the movement of goods and materials across national frontiers, play a key role. Costs for business can be threefold. First, there are the direct costs associated with paying duties that include customs duty, excise duty, anti-dumping duty, countervailing duties, CAP levies, import value added tax and compensatory interest. Second, costs for business include the costs of complying with any import and/or export restrictions and in meeting customer compliance requirements. Third, costs may also include opportunity costs associated by failing to take advantage of any customs regimes or trade concessions. As goods and materials move across national frontiers, managing the customs function is a key factor to success within the efforts of supply chain management.
