Importing in the United States is highly regulated and
involves much work for importers. It can be a tricky
process for new importers who have no previous
experience of purchasing goods from abroad and
getting them inboard. For inexperienced businesses
and first-timers, it is always recommended to work with
customs brokers and freight forwarders to meet specific
federal requirements and to make the process smooth.
Besides this, importers should familiarize themselves
with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP)
policies and other necessary prerequisites prior to
actually importing goods.
