Freedom of Information Act Requests
The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a law that gives you the right to access information from the U.S. Government. It is often described as the law that keeps citizens in the know about their government. We can help you to be in the know. Contact us to learn how to take advantage of the FOIA.
Keeping Your Import and Export Trade Data Confidential -- And Learning How to Get Hold of Your Competitors' Trade Data
There is no privacy for your company's ocean import or export manifest data. Your overseas supplier information is out there and available to your actual and prospective business competitors. Valuable company details that parties involved in international trade think are private or secret are simply not confidential -- until you do something to make them so.
The "confidential" information being published by many online companies is actually public information. They are selling your company's import and export ocean manifest information, which has been provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), to your hungry competitors. Your competition can know everything about your international supply chain, including vendors, customers, carriers, products, HTS or Schedule B numbers, weights and measures etc. This data is easily obtainable via online subscriptions.
Don't let your company be undermined. Contact us right away to find out how you can prevent the CBP from revealing your business secrets. You can't afford to do nothing about making a confidential ocean manifest certification request to the CBP. Moreover, you can't afford not to know how to secure your competitors' trade information. We can show you how to do so lawfully. Contact us today.
