4 Steps to International Shipping

Step 1: Check shipping restrictions to your destination country

The first step to shipping internationally is to make sure you can legally ship your commodity. Depending on where you want to ship to, there might be certain restrictions as to what kind of materials can be accepted and how your shipment needs to be prepared.

Step 2: Prepare your customs documents

Accurate documentation is essential to international shipping and customs clearance. After all, delayed shipments tie up your inventory and create unwanted issues for your customers.

Save yourself valuable time by ensuring you have all the information you need on hand when you're filling out customs documents. You'll need to include your product's Export Control Classification Number, Harmonized System Code, and the accurate description and value of your commodity. Additionally, for international safety reasons, some products that are considered dual-use, commercial products require that you have an Export License.
