Prepare Shipping Documents

What do you need to do before you ship?
If you are well-prepared before you begin completing your documentation, shipping internationally can be easy. Begin by asking yourself these two important questions.

Where do I want to ship?
The destination for your item is crucial in determining what documentation you'll need, the duties and taxes you'll pay, and much more.

What do I want to ship?
Describe your shipment contents accurately. One of the most common reasons for customs delays is inaccurate or vague shipment descriptions. A consistent and detailed description of your shipment contents across all documents will help reduce customs delays.
