Abstract: It is considered that classifying the appropriate Harmonized System code (commonly known as HS code) is a tacit knowledge. Many practitioners used to ascertain the HS code of commodities through the hands-on experience, or by simply by following the instructions of their senior officers or solely accepting the decision of customs officers. This practice was not a big challenge when the importers and exporters handled just a handful of commodities. However, with the gradual increase of international trading and logistics activities the industry became very complex resulting the logisticians need to deal with many commodities thus HS codes. This paper provides a simplified method that helps the user to find the accurate HS code of any complicated cargo commodity promptly and logically. Therefore, the Documentation or Customer service staff in the shipping line agent office should be very familiar about the HS Nomenclature to expedite the booking process while eliminating risks of potential customs penalties.
