Send us an e-mail
by clarifying your request (please do not change the default email title). Be
sure that your request includes detailed product specifications and the quantity
you would like to import.
3) We will present a couple of potential suppliers to you. You can
either directly contact the suppliers or make us the delegate for the initial
negotiation. Be sure to discuss price, shipping, and payment terms during this
stage. Request a sample when necessary.
Translation Services in all major languages will be provided upon request.
4) Select a supplier you would like to work with based on product
quality, price, and proposed payment terms.
5) Contact your local international trade association and customs office
to help you select a customs house broker and freight forwarder. For the first
time importer, use more individualized services, since you will need more
attention than you expect. Ask the customs house broker and freight forwarder
for a detailed break-down on the costs and regulations for importing these goods
into your country.
6) Do your homework on compliance issues. You must understand the
relevant import compliance regulations beforehand. For an example, besides US
Customs and Border Protection, other government authorities like USDA, FDA, DOT,
and ATF also regulate imports. Go to the websites of these agencies to register
and/or download the necessary forms.
7) Place an order with the selected supplier through a written
purchase order. In the purchase order, be sure to include a detailed description
of the products, trade terms, and a list of all necessary shipping documents.
8) If necessary, appoint an inspection company to check your goods on site in
the factory. It is usually done a few days before the expected shipping date.
This will minimize your risk in receiving defective or non-conforming goods.
9) Issue a power of attorney for your customs broker to act on your
behalf when the goods arrive in your country.
10) Track your shipment and customs clearance. Your forwarder and customs broker
will take care of the logistics for transportation and customs clearance.
