Administrative barriers to trade

Cecília Hornok and Miklós Koren

Journal of International Economics, 2015, vol. 96, issue S1, S110-S122

Abstract: We build a model of administrative barriers to trade to understand how they affect trade volumes, shipping decisions and welfare. Because administrative costs are incurred with every shipment, exporters have to decide how to break up total trade into individual shipments. Consumers value frequent shipments, because they enable them to consume close to their preferred dates. Hence per-shipment costs create a welfare loss.
