Shipping is an important topic for anyone who gets serious about CNC, a result of Automating a process or just getting good at Computer Automation. Below are a few forms to assist you in shipping some product internationally, along with a couple of pointers.
Taxes, can't get around them, or can you? Really no matter how you cut it a fee will have to be paid to get stuff moved across an international boarder, even with Free Trade Agreements, and Tax Exempt items (Reliant on the HTS Codes and the Trade Agreement with that particular Country) a Broker will collect a Fee to Inspect, and clear your commodity.
Certain items maybe Prohibited for entry Importation, there maybe Sanctions on some items, or Control of others, known as Controlled goods, or, some items maybe contraband for protection of People and/ or Environment, to support the fact your commodity is Free Trade Applicable or even legal for trade, certain documents with specific information may need to accompany the goods.
It's important to retain a copy of all shipments sent internationally on file

limited to: Tracking numbers, Invoice numbers, and Export Declaration Numbers.
