Strategic Quota Watch

The IDS Strategic Quota Watch (SQW) began as an integrated quota management service.  Now, it offers a snapshot of the opportunities available using U.S. Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) and trade preference programs.  We combine the most up-to-date statistical data available for textile and apparel imports with the services of a highliy experienced and profressional staff who offer support and insights on the day-to-day operations of the U.S. textile program.

SQW includes:

  • Country-by-country statistical analysis of TPL entries, based on U.S. Customs data from the ports. Information includes the Quota Limit, Customs Charges, Quota Fill Rate and Percent Change from the Previous Week and the Current Quota Balance Remaining;
  • Updates describing recent events and government actions affecting U.S. imports;
  • Current Embargo Report; and
  • Potential Embargo Report, including a mathematical projection of when an embargo might occur.
