FAQ: What is the USMCA?

USMCA stands for United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which was signed on November 30, 2018. Essentially, it replaces the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) which was in place since January 1994. NAFTA slowly phased out tariffs on most goods between North America’s three main economic powers. All agricultural and textile products, cars, and other goods had their tariffs reduced or eliminated by 2008.

Do You Have a Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ)?
It is common practice in manufacturing to set a minimum order quantity (MOQ), which is the fewest amount of units that need to be purchased at once. Manufacturers or suppliers usually use MOQs for production runs, but a manufacturer can set them for different types of orders. At NovaLink, we do not establish relationships with our manufacturing partners based on MOQs, but rather through sustained production. NovaLink believes that having a consistent volume that engages full-time manufacturing teams year-round is the key to a successful, financially-viable manufacturing project. Partnering with NovaLink is not for “short runs” or products that require simple, machine-based production.
