The United States International Trade Commission has determined that US industry is materially injured by reason of imports of steel racks from China that the US Department of Commerce has determined are subsidized and sold in the United States at less than fair value. As a result of the USITC’s affirmative determinations, Commerce will issue antidumping and countervailing duty orders on imports of this product from China.

Product Description: A steel rack, sometimes referred to as a “storage rack,” is a structure consisting of the following hot-rolled or cold-formed steel structural components: (1) vertical columns connected by braces, (2) load-bearing horizontal beams, and (3) locking devices to secure the beams to the columns. Certain types of steel racks may also include movable components, such as rails, wheels, rollers, tracks, channels, carts, or conveyors. Steel racks offer strength and stability for storing heavy loads in readily accessible rack configurations. Hence, they are utilized for short- or long-term holding of products or materials in warehouses, order-fulfillment and distribution centers, big-box retail stores, and manufacturing facilities.
