Dear Lindsey,
I would be grateful if you can advise if you are planning to load the bales in Containers, or ship them as breakbulk. In any case, it would be helpful to know, the collection point, size of shipment inclg size of each bale, weight of each bale, and total qty you wish to ship per shipment, and which USA port the shipment is for.Plse reply to

Hello Lindsey,
Before you obtain the freight quotes kindly being offered above you need to decide the terms of your shipment so you can correctly advise the freight companies involved and indeed your customer.

You need to know what costs are to be included in the price that you have quoted to your customer and which costs your customer will have to pay for himself. It is usual to use an INCOterm in the contract for this purpose e.g. FCA, FOB named place etc.

Freight costs are itemised from the point of loading at the collection address to the point of unloading at the destination and they can be divided between yourself and the buyer in any way you choose.

Who pays what also includes who pays the import duty and taxes that are payable in the country of import. Different US States charge or don’t charge tax on import. They all charge import duty. To find out the duty and tax rate applicable you need the customs tariff classification for your product.
