How will the new tariffs impact your business? Listen to these insights from expert Carolyn Gleason.

Oct 3, 2018

As if the skyrocketing transportation rates weren't enough of a challenge for logistics professionals to deal with, new tariffs are creating more issues and threats to corporate supply chains. So we used the powerful TranzAct network to reach out to tariff expert Carolyn Gleason for an explanation as to how the new regulations will impact U.S. businesses.


Carolyn is the Head of the Global Regulatory Practice and International Trade Practice at McDermott Will and Emery in Washington D.C. In our interview, she addresses questions such as:

  • How long will these tariffs continue? Will political changes during upcoming elections have an impact?
  • Will companies be granted exclusions to the 232 tariffs? Will products currently impacted by the 301 tariff be able to gain exemption?
  • How are different industries reacting? Do they support these measures?
  • What mitigation strategies should companies use?

If you have specific questions or issues about mitigation strategies for your company, Carolyn has graciously agreed to discuss these with our audience. You can reach her by phone at 202-756-8215 or send her an email.
