PPN EVENT | Tariffs & Publishing: A Roundtable Discussion

How Will Chinese Tariffs Affect Your Business?

Since the U.S. government imposed new tariffs on books, we are all sorting our way through the maze of terms and wondering:

  • What is CIF, DDP, DAP, and DDU?
  • Is a pro forma invoice the same as a commercial invoice?


Carrick Wilkie, Group Marketing and Sales Director USA with Publiship Logistics, will walk us through all this and more. Wilkie recently participated in the BISG and PubWest session on tariffs and will share his insights and answer audience questions.

Please join us for this free roundtable at Chronicle Books on October 2. Attendance is limited and this event is sure to be in high demand. RSVP by October 1.

5:00 p.m. Refreshments
5:30 p.m. Roundtable
