Watch Out for Fluctuations in Wholegood Pricing

Trump’s Trade Tariffs Cause Fluctuations in Wholegood Pricing

We wanted to make a quick announcement on the current state of wholegood prices in the US and Canada, which seem to fluctuate because of the ongoing trade negotiations between the US and its trading partners.

So, What’s Happening, Exactly?

As you may already know, the US has been re-negotiating its trade agreements with Canada, Mexico and the European Union. There’s also an on-going trade dispute with China.

Why Does This Matter?

Trade negotiations can have a direct effect on the pricing of the goods sold in the US, including those sold in rule in the outdoor power equipment, powersports and marine industries.

We’re seeing plenty of significant alterations in the wholegood prices that come into Ideal from our OEM partners, which may have a direct impact on how you conduct your daily business.

Any prices that you see today may easily change tomorrow, as the negotiations continue. We urge you to keep a close eye on the latest developments and adjust your business strategy accordingly.
