Exporting Document Preparation

Before you set out to sell and or ship to a country overseas, it is advised that you check the specific documentary requirements, regulations and restrictions on export to that country. Excluding Canada, there are approx. 192 independent countries in the world. This implies that there are 192 different documentary requirements when it comes to shipping to those countries. It can be challenging and unforgiving if you make any errors or omissions.

With our extensive background in international imports and exports, we can be of assistance in the preparation of your export documents. While we may not have all the answers, we know where and how to obtain the necessary information to make your shipment as convenient and as cost effective as possible.
