Transportation — ITC Terminates AD/CVD Case on 53-Foot Containers

The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) on May 19, terminated an antidumping (AD) and countervailing (CVD) duty case regarding 53-Foot Domestic Dry Containers. FASA, along with a number of other industry groups, sent a letter April 8, urging the ITC to consider the potential adverse economic impact of the case. If the ITC had imposed AD/CVD duties, the shipping industry’s ability to source necessary containers would have been significantly weakened.
