On Wednesday, we showed that 73 percent of the top imports under GSP lost market share in the first two months of 2011 compared to one year earlier.  Across the board, general trends showed a shift away from GSP imports in favor of imports from other countries/under other programs.  Since company examples are always better than impersonal data, we ask you:

  • has GSP expiration caused you to change your sourcing strategy?
  • have you held off on purchasing from GSP countries in the hopes of a quick renewal or did you shift sourcing to non-GSP countries?
  • if you’ve changed sources, from which countries are you now buying?

You can respond in the comments section or by emailing here.  Thanks in advance for helping us figure this out!
