Good morning Sue,

A good freight forwarder would be able to advise you on the paperwork you would need to provide to enable you to clear the goods in the US. Have you agreed terms of trade with your buyers as yet?

I would be more than happy to chat this through with you if you would like. I also have a contact name for a freight forwarder in your area that will be able to assist you if you need one.
.
It may also be worth speaking to your local UKTI or Institute for Export who may be able to provide assistance in this matter.

My contact number is 07803 376 971 and email paul.williams1@santander.co.uk
Regards,

Paul

Dear Sue,

Based on the information you have provided, exporting the goods to the USA should not present a problem. As the previous responder suggests, INCOTERMS 2010 will determine who is responsible for clearing your goods through US Customs and it is possible they may also need FDA/TSCA clearance which is a simple process.I would be happy to help with the exporting of your commodity to the USA, we have an office in the USA to clear conatiners / LCL shipments so they should be able to help us with any paper work question you have before exporting. Part of the unique sellling point of Embassy Freight is that it is our own offices around the world.
Thanks
