A Checklist of factors to consider when purchasing a container
with the intention to ship it to another location.
Import Export Workbench - Export Checklist
This Export Checklist has been prepared for small-business US exporters. Since shipping documents are the
same for all exporters worldwide, this Export Checklist can be used by any exporter worldwide. For exporters
from other countries outside the USA, check with your local foreign trade department for internal documents
required by your country.
Exporting can be a way of expanding your business and ensuring that risks are spread across a number of international economies. It should not be entered into lightly as the penalties for failure can be significant.
This check-list will help you to consider your readiness to export.
