What is an HTS Code or HS Code for International Shipping?
An HTS code stands for Harmonized Tariff Schedule. Developed by the World Customs Organization (WCO), HTS codes are used to define and classify imported goods. In most cases, the traded product must be assigned an HTS code that corresponds with the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the destination country so that the importing-exporting process can be smooth.
Is the HTS code the same as the HS code? They serve the same purpose. The HTS code is an 8-10-digit standard while the first 6 digits are referred to as the HS code. With HTS codes/HS codes, identifying product categories is not brain-taxing any more.
