Your Export Plan Section 5 Part 7

Transportation and Documentation




On the last post, we covered the documents needed for the movement of goods between inland points and the port at which the export will arrive/depart.

This post we will look at packaging, temporary export licenses and ATA carnets


Goods shipped for export require substantially greater handling than domestic shipments. You must pack the goods to ensure that:

  • Weight and measurements are kept to a minimum;
  • Breakage is avoided;
  • The container is theft proof; and
  • Goods do not suffer from the stresses of ocean shipment, such as excess moisture.

In addition to proper packing, you should be aware that certain markings are necessary on goods transported internationally.

Typical Required Markings:

  • Country of origin: Some countries require that the country of origin be marked on the outside of the container, and may even have regulations as to how the mark of origin should appear.
  • Labeling: Food and drugs often must carry special labeling as determined by the laws of the country of destination.
  • Weight and dimensions: These should be visible and any special instructions should be shown; you may wish to include translations of these instructions in the language of the importer’s country.

If your business is not equipped to package your goods for export, there are export packaging companies that can perform this service for you.

  • For more information, ask your international freight forwarder for a list of export packaging companies in your area.

There are several considerations for preparing to ship your product overseas. These include requirements for certain products, such as hazardous materials, and regulations depending on your method of shipping, whether by air, sea, rail or truck. Learn more at SBA’s Transportation and Logistics page.

Temporary Export Licenses and ATA Carnets

An ATA Carnet is a special customs document that provides temporary, duty-free admission into countries for commercial samples, scientific equipment, education materials, and goods for exhibit. The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) can advise you on the need for a temporary export license.

ATA Carnets are made available through the International Chamber of Commerce and associated organizations. In the United States, the program is administered by the U.S. Council for International Business in New York City. 

Temporary importation provisions are an important tool for companies that want to demonstrate their products in foreign markets or for professionals bringing “tools of the trade” into a foreign country for a limited period of time.

Companies have several options when considering temporary importation. These include:

  • ATA Carnets
  • Temporary Importation Bonds (TIBs)
  • Entry with duty drawback There is also provision for bringing tools of trade allowed for in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

The ATA Carnet system is the most user-friendly system of temporary importation; however, there are a number of countries that do not accept carnets. In these countries, companies can post TIBs or apply for a duty drawback as an alternative means to duty-free importation. 

This post, the 39th entry, concludes the Export Series. The first one, “Service Exports: A Growth Opportunity Part 1”, was published on March 3,2016. Last entry on March 18, 2017 

Due to resources there will be more posts, but all the steps to exporting have concluded 

A special, heartwarming thanks to Wanda K Robinson who read every single entry and cheered me on.  A thank you to Tom Riach, who will eventually read them all and to his words of wisdom and wit along the way. Thanks to all who have read some and left a comment



Thank you for stopping by!
