European Trade Outlook


February 8, 2023 

10:00 AM EST

With the many headwinds facing European trade, we are bringing in professionals from UPS and IHS Markit to discuss the macroeconomic outlook in Europe and how that might impact importers.


The European Union is also preparing for Release 2 of the Import Control System 2 (ICS2) planned for March 1, 2023. The release will impact documentation requirements for all shipments going to or passing through European countries affecting shippers worldwide. 


If you feel like your business could be better prepared, join UPS for an informative webinar on Wednesday, February 8th where we’ll discuss:

  • Economic outlook in Europe and how that might impact importers.
  • Release 2 of the Import Control System 2 (ICS2) planned for March 1, 2023.
