Most common mistakes in imports and exports

A proper planning is crucial for carrying out export or import logistics without any setbacks. Below, we detail the most common mistakes to consider in order to avoid:

Issues when importing:

Not using the services of a customs agency:
For imports, it’s very important to have an experienced customs agent before the merchandise is shipped, so that customs clearance can be entrusted to them and all the necessary information for importing the goods can be provided.

Absence of original documentation:
Sometimes the original documentation travels with the merchandise, but in other cases, such as with maritime shipments, it is usually sent ahead by courier to expedite the procedures.

Incidents upon delivery:
Unloading the merchandise without first checking the number of boxes, weights, content, origin; when merchandise arrives in poor condition without speaking to the supplier or resolving the issue with the transport company beforehand.

Issues when exporting:

Logistics and transportation of the merchandise:
In the internationalization process, it is necessary to define the most effective way to transport the product and take into account aspects such as tariffs, customs, and changes in cargo, as occurs in maritime transport. Transportation insurance is also essential to avoid setbacks.

Ignoring bureaucratic procedures:
Many of the setbacks in the delivery of goods occur in customs.

Not considering the cultural profiles of the market:
They only emphasize the price-quality relationship and underestimate the cultural values of the market.
