International Logistics: Schedule B and HS Numbers

Why do you need to know your product’s Schedule B and HS numbers?

Exporters need to know their product’s Schedule B and HS numbers to:

• Determine applicable import tariff rates and whether a product qualifies for a preferential tariff under a Free Trade Agreement (the U.S. Schedule B number will be very similar, if not the same, as the importing country’s HS number).

• Complete the Shipper’s Export Declaration, Certificates of Origin and other shipping documents.
