Maximize Your Duty Drawback Recoveries with DL Trading
Architects of the Trading Drawback Model

The Trading Drawback Model is a compliant method of recovering import duty and fees via duty drawback by matching imports against exports of unrelated parties through a partnership with DL Trading.

DL Trading was formed for the sole purpose of maximizing drawback. With over 19 years in business, it is the oldest and largest (by number of claims and dollars recovered) trading drawback company in existence. We partner with existing importers and exporters to recover duties which they can’t recover on their own. Our unique partnership brings significant and ongoing duty recoveries which flow directly to our partners’ bottom-line profits.

The Trading Drawback Model is applied after all internal opportunities have been exhausted. Companies that are importing and exporting from the United States (“U.S.”) can file directly for duty drawback recoveries. However, in most cases, companies have an imbalance of either import volumes or export volumes, both of which restrict their ability to maximize duty recoveries. These imbalances are where a DL Trading partnership can benefit your company. DL Trading’s exclusive material trade lanes absorb these imbalances and allow DL Trading to recover the duties and share them with its partners.

As the model architect and the leading trading drawback company, DL Trading is unmatched in its stability. DL Trading has numerous U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) rulings and informational letters to its name that established and continue to validate concepts and foundation of the Trading Drawback Model.

Specifically, DL Trading specializes in establishing drawback recoveries through partnerships with various U.S. importers and exporters for their excess or previously undeveloped duty-drawback recoveries. Until passage of the Trade Facilitation and Enforcement Act of 2015 (“TFTEA”), Trading Drawback Model was limited to a finite group of Harmonized Tariff Schedule of U.S. (“HTSUS”) codes mainly in the Chemicals, Plastics and Resins categories. Since the enactment of TFTEA, The Trading Model has expanded its reach to all HTSUS chapters. Please contact DL Trading for a complimentary duty drawback analysis and uncover your drawback potential.
