Customer update regarding newly implemented steel and aluminum tariffs on imports to the United States of America
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - March 22, 2018 - PRLog -- "Tariff: A tax or duty to be paid on a particular class of imports or exports." On March 9, 2018, declarations were signed by President Trump to apply a 25% and 10% tariff respectively to steel and aluminum  imports.
