What products can be exported to the United States?
The United States is one of the most powerful economies in the world. That is why hundreds of companies from all over the world have commercial interests in this North American country. Every day, freight forwarding operations are carried out to the United States from countries in the rest of the American continent and from elsewhere in the world, such as Europe, Asia, Africa, and Oceania.
Before starting any commercial export shipment to the United States, we must know its rules, regulations, customs legislation, tariff regime, customs procedures and all the requirements for the entry of our merchandise into the country. In addition, our products must be perfectly labeled so that the passage through U.S. Customs is as smooth as possible. U.S. Customs officials administer customs duties and are responsible for collecting duties and taxes on goods entering the nation. Depending on the country from which the product is being shipped, the regulations vary, as may be the case with shipments to other nations on the continent or with shipments made from the European Union.
