Attending international tradeshows is one of the best ways to grow your brand, network and reach new clients you normally wouldn’t. International tradeshow shipping typically requires more documentation and even more thorough packaging and labelling of your goods. Here are some expert tips for avoiding mishaps when shipping overseas:
Know Your Destination Country’s Regulations
Every country has its own regulations. While most of these regulations aren’t significantly different, it’s easy to miss a specific requirement for the country you’re sending something to. Because time is critical, working with an international shipping provider who understands the specific requirements and regulations for your destination country can save you time and money.
Package Your Shipment Properly
If you are accustomed to, for example, using wood pallets in the shipping process, be advised that there are some countries that regulate wood packaging and need to inspect it to ensure insects and other pests do not enter the country. Make sure you’re familiar with packaging rules and regulations.
Thoroughly Label Your Materials
When you ship internationally, you will need to include additional information on the labels. For example, you need to have the country of origin clearly labeled on your package. You’ll also need to label whether or not there are any hazardous materials within the package. A company like AMR Group is well-versed in international tradeshow shipping will be able to supply all the needed labels for your shipment.
