Forced Labor Prevention Act - Importer Pain Points: Learn how to protect your supply chain
In this webinar, hosted by Maersk Customs Services and Altana AI, we focus on some of the current issues and challenges that importers are facing regarding The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act, signed into law December 2021, that takes effect on June 22, 2022. The underlying principle of this legislation is the concept of rebuttable presumption.
Importers lack access to information and documentation through the various tiers in their supply chain. They need the capability to analyze any risk implications and address the impact of illegal transshipment. As a result, importers will be faced with detentions and exclusions of merchandise which will have a devastating effect on their business models.
This webinar will focus on key elements of The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act, the WRO impact and how to navigate these challenges with data driven analytics using artificial intelligence modeling.
