How to export from Europe to Argentina

Globalization means that every day, millions of commercial transactions are carried out all over the world. There are practically no borders, and it is common and natural to purchase a product or merchandise even if it is thousands of kilometers away.

Two of the continents that trade regularly takes place between are America and Europe. Since the end of the 15th century, with the arrival of the first European ships in America, trading has not stopped. Today, thousands of ships and airplanes cross the Atlantic Ocean every year to meet the demands of businesses and consumers.

One of the places European countries trade the most with is Argentina. This South American nation has strong links with countries such as France, Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, and Spain. But what steps should be taken to ship our goods to this important region of South America?

  • Know the procedures: It is essential to be aware of all export processes by studying customs procedures, tariffs, and Argentinian and Mercosur legislation before starting any commercial expedition. Requirements such as being registered with the General Tax Directorate (DGI) and with the General Customs Directorate of Argentina are necessary procedures for any exporter.
  • Documentation required: The merchandise must be accompanied by all its documentation, including the commercial invoice, the picking list, or the transport document.
  • Select the type of transport: It is only possible to export from Europe to Argentina by container ship or cargo plane. Both means of transport have their advantages and disadvantages. For example, maritime transport in a container allows for larger loads and is more economical, and air transport is faster and can reach inland regions of the country.
  • Labeling, packaging, and traceability: There are several aspects in exports that may be overlooked if there is a lack of knowledge, and this can lead to delays and errors. It is vital that the packages or goods are well packed and labeled so that they can pass through customs smoothly and without inconveniences. In addition, thanks to technology, big data, and geolocation, we can provide exhaustive real-time traceability of our shipments from origin to destination.
