Curt E.H. WilsonPresident and CEO of boomerang carnets will participate in Workshop #3 on Customs and Logistics, Monday September 18th at 4:00-4:40 p.m. ET in Grand Ballroom D, a panel discussion on logistics, shipping, and navigating customs procedures.  With over 36 years of experience in the trade sector, Curt’s expertise includes carnet bond underwriting, logistics, carnet claims management, client relationship management, cargo insurance, new product development and all aspects of the ATA Carnet, the flexible trade tool used to facilitate business growth internationally.  The ATA Carnet allows for significant savings by avoiding import-duty, -taxes, and -fees on temporary exports.

The ATA Carnet is an internationally accepted customs document for temporarily exported merchandise, goods or equipment (boomerang freight) that allows for cross-border movement of those goods import-duty and -tax free in and out of 87+ carnet countries and territories for up to a year. Also known as the Merchandise Passport, the ATA Carnet is a unique international trade tool for accessing foreign markets easily and affordably.

From jewelry to aviation equipment, to drones, robotics, film production equipment—all these goods are constantly being put on ATA Carnets for demonstration, exhibition, or sales meetings, generating new revenues from new international market penetration. There are substantial savings from the elimination of the import duty and import tax, the VAT tax, and the avoidance of the additional costs associated with other methods of temporary export documentation.”  - Curt E.H. Wilson
