Hire a Shipping Broker: An international freight forwarder (shipping/customs broker) will handle all of your shipping and importing logistics. They do not physically move the goods themselves, but act as a project manager linking the manufacturer, cargo carrier, customs, and you. This is a professional you want on your side. Our friends at CargoTrans will expertly handle your shipments from door-to-door.

Get Familiar with Antidumping Laws: As defined by Merriam-Webster, antidumping is a duty imposed by the US government “designed to discourage the importation and sale of foreign goods at prices well below domestic prices.” Duties are imposed on several stationery products imported from China.
