US imposes duties on imports of wire decking from China
The US government slapped preliminary anti-dumping duties on imports of more than 300 million dollars worth of wire decking from China, the Commerce Department said in a statement on Tuesday.
The department claimed that it found dumping of wire decking from China after investigation. The tariffs of between 42.61 to 289 percent will be imposed and collected until a final determination is made in the case.
Wire decking reinforced with structural supports is designed generally for industrial and other commercial storage rack systems.
The United States has imposed duties on a variety of Chinese goods including steel pipes, grating and tubular goods based on other investigations.
The wire decking anti-dumping case is another move that might escalate trade disputes between the two major trade players in the world.
