Reminder: Seasonal Produce Tariff Number Change for Cucumbers!
As a reminder, on May 1st, the seasonal tariff number for cucumbers changed from 0707.00.4000 to 0707.00.5010 (Greenhouse grown) or 0707.00.5090 (field grown). This tariff number is effective until June 30th.
If you are using an electronic platform for your shipments such as ShipCheck, please remember to change the tariff numbers in your profile so that the proper tariff numbers are sent. In the ShipCheck parts management page, the part numbers can be activated or deactivated for the season.
Unfortunately, when incorrect tariff numbers are sent, it causes delays in shipment processing as the numbers must to be manually changed prior to transmission for FDA and CBP release.
