Customs documents when using freight forwarder via your factory in China
Asked By Cynthia Yoon,Last Answer By Sandy liang At 2011.05,1 Answers

Hi,<br/>I am having problems confirming with the factory in China that I am working with the issue of customs documents. This is my first time purchasing from China. I keep asking if they use a specific freight fowarder in the US who will handle all the customs paperwork and I keep getting told that they have to decide which shipping company they are going to use first and will let me know. But my question is if I let the factory in China manages the US freight forwarding, should I expect they also deal with all the appropriate customs documents? I want to make sure so I know if I need to get my own broker to do this on my end, but the factory is not letting me know.<br/><br/>Thanks

Looking for advice on choosing a freight forwarder
Asked By John Kenyon,Last Answer By wendy qiu At 2011.05,1 Answers

I am new to importing and need to select a freight forwarder to handle a container (20&#39;) arriving in Long Beach, CA. What do I need to look for? And where can I find relative and objective information about the forwarding companies?<br/><br/>Here are some specifics about our situation:<br/>- We are located in the Midwest.<br/>- The entire contents of this container is for a client near Los Angeles.<br/>- We would like the contents delivered in a "re-branded" manner. That is, I want the client to go through us for the next order also.<br/><br/>Also, we anticipate doing imports to our Midwest facility in the near future. It seems that it would be wise to choose a forwarder with a presence on the West Coast as well as the Great Lakes. Does that sound right? Or should I not let that get in the way of choosing a forwarder for this shipment?<br/><br/>All advice is greatly appreciated!<br/><br/>

10 Questions To Ask When Choosing a Freight Forwarder
Asked By Sam Bo,Last Answer By Ask fibre At 2011.05,1 Answers

<p>Although the article below is from an exporter&#39;s perspective, there are numerous <br/>
overlapping scenarios which are equally applicable to Importers in general:</p>
<p>10 Questions To Ask When Choosing a Freight Forwarder:</p>
<p>When sitting up an export business, there are two important actions an exporter must take:</p>
<p>1) buy a facsimile machine 2) get a freight forwarder</p>
<p>While the first is a relatively simple operation, the second is a major decision that an exporter must make carefully.</p>
<p>Look in any telephone directory under "Freight Forwarders" and you will see hundreds of listings. But how do exporters decide which freight forwarder is best for their company and their product?</p>
<p>Exporters are advised to choose freight forwarders by measuring them against the following 10 criteria:</p>
<p>1) Is the freight forwarder&#39;s company big enough to handle your business when the forwarder is away from the office?</p>
<p>Just because the forwarder is on a business trip or away on vacation, your export efforts shouldn&#39;t come to a halt because there&#39;s no one to answer questions or handle shipping instructions for your product.</p>
<p>2) Is the freight forwarding firm stable?</p>
<p>Has the company "been around" very long? Does it have financial stability? Commercial banks and trade references can help with checking this criteria.</p>
<p>3) Can the freight forwarder handle whatever product you want to ship, whichever way you want to ship it (air or sea)?</p>
<p>The freight forwarder also should be an import broker to handle the customs angle for you in case you need to import something or have goods returned from overseas.</p>
<p>4) Does the freight forwarders have a good network of agents overseas, particularly in your target market? What do these agents handle?</p>
<p>A good network of overseas agents ensures a smooth path for your product with a minimum of delay. This is important for perishable products or ones that need special handling. A container of wine sitting on the dock in a warm country can pose a real hazard to your product&#39;s reputation.</p>
<p>5) Can the freight forwarder communicate with you as a novice?</p>
<p>Is the freight forwarder willing to take the time to explain terms and procedures in a way you can understand?</p>
<p>6) What is the freight forwarder&#39;s document turnaround time?</p>
<p>Is the freight forwarder located near the airport, steamship offices and banks? A strategic location cuts document turnaround time and ensures you get paid quickly via the banks.</p>
<p>7) Does the freight forwarder have some knowledge of your product?</p>
<p>If possible, choose a freight forwarder who has some knowledge of the special needs of your product. If the freight forwarder usually handles only furniture, will the company be attuned to the needs for shipping wine or fresh produce?</p>
<p>8) Have you checked the freight forwarder&#39;s references? It is crucial to check references for any company that will be handling your business. Also check customer satisfaction.</p>
<p>9) Does the freight forwarder have errors and omissions insurance?</p>
<p>Even the most conscientious freight forwarder can make a mistake. A minor error on documents can delay your product, hurt sales and stall your receiving payment for the goods. Make sure your freight forwarder has "errors and omissions insurance" to provide for just this eventuality.</p>
<p>10) What are the freight forwarder&#39;s communication facilities?</p>
