The Importer’s Survival Kit

The hardest part about importing is knowing where to find all the information you need.

The Importer’s Survival Kit is about more than just learning the import process. It’s a compilation of the top five resources US Customs Brokers use everyday to answer their client’s questions about international trade.

Don’t pay any brokerage fees until you’ve read this material!

Almost everything your broker will tell you about importing is covered by one of the five publications in this kit.

Consider the average $100 dollar hourly rate of a licensed US Customs Broker versus the one time cost of the Importer’s Survival Kit. With most importers needing more than five hours of consultation from a broker, the Survival Kit is a practical way to kick start any importing venture with very little investment.

The Importer’s Survival Kit contains five resources hand picked by our staff of licensed US Customs Brokers. With well over 3,000 pages of specific advice and money saving tips, the Survival Kit is packed with information you can use in any import operation.
