For those of you using Apple iPhones or iPads, you can now purchase 2 useful applications to help ease your decision- making and hopefully your workload too! A company by the name of Slig Logic has developed these applications which are available on iTunes store at a nominal charge.
The HS Code Handbook provides the HS nomenclature which is expandable up to 6-digits with full HS descriptions. Although a search function exists, the app still requires the user to have a general understanding of the HS system structure in order to navigate properly.
Another application called International Trade Dictionary is particularly useful for supply chain operators who need to understand trade terminology better. It includes over 1000 terms and has been updated to reflect compatibility with Incoterms 2010. These are not just gimmicks, but very handy.
