Expeditions to America: some useful advice
The countries that from north to south form the American continent were the main destination of the migratory flow that, at the beginning of the 20th century, involved many Italians. This has meant that, even today, many descendants of emigrants from Italy still live in America. In addition to the frequent shipments to America, there are also items of a commercial nature in addition to personal consignments (a gift or sending clothing to relatives). Europacco is the ideal option for sending parcels, pallets and documents to America. To do so, simply go to the home page and fill in the online form, indicating the sender's, recipient's and billing address, as well as the desired collection date. Once you have completed the payment of the required amount by PayPal or credit card, your order will be confirmed.
Shipping to the United States
Among the various areas of the American continent that have welcomed many Italian emigrants, we mention first and foremost the host community in New York City. The Americans, for their part, have shown on several occasions that they appreciate the typical products coming from our country, from wine to oil, passing through handmade articles and objects, a typical expression of Italian craftsmanship. It is therefore not surprising that more and more companies from Italy are making shipments.
Direct shipments to South America
The relationship between South America and Italy is very close. This is demonstrated by Italian Americans living in Argentina or Brazil. This relationship has inevitably led to an intensification of the exchange of goods. If you have a business, for example an e-commerce, and you want your goods to reach the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, you need to be able to rely on a forwarding agent who can deliver your goods as quickly as possible. Even better would be to be able to do this at affordable rates. Europacco uses reliable and fast couriers and stands out for the excellent price/quality ratio of its services.
The documentation needed to ship to America
If you have already gained some experience in shipping, you will be aware that sending pallets, parcels or packages containing documents to a non-EU country requires a larger number of documents. In the event of a customs check, the authorities will need to be able to quickly obtain information about the contents of the parcel, the reason for the shipment, who the recipient is, and the value of the goods being shipped.
The list of required documents
People who need to ship products to the U.S., in addition to the waybill, are required to accompany the shipments with:
- Commercial or proforma invoice
- Declaration of Free Export
- A copy of the shipper's identity document
The documents listed must be enclosed with the shipment together with the consignment note received upon confirmation of the order. The description of the goods on the invoice must be precise and detailed and written entirely in the language of the importing country or an international language - English.
Commercial invoice and proforma invoice: differences
A proforma invoice may be produced when the shipment is to a relative, friend or acquaintance residing in an American country. It is basically a document accepted by customs if the goods shipped are not intended for sale. In addition to shipments containing gifts, other shipments that may have a pro forma, non-commercial invoice may be shipments of personal effects, sampling, or repairs. The pro forma invoice must include all information regarding the contents of the shipment so that there are no misunderstandings during customs clearance. The description of the goods shipped should be very detailed, showing the country of manufacture of the items, the number of items, the unit and total value of the goods.
Shipments destined for the USA and the duties to be paid
The export of products of Italian origin to countries outside the European Union involves the payment of entry duties. The same applies to the import of non-EU goods into Italy. In North and South America, duties can amount to up to 30% of the value of the goods declared on the pro-forma invoice.
Failure to pay duties and taxes within the timeframe imposed by US Customs can lead to delays in delivery and, in the worst case, abandonment or destruction of the shipment by the competent authorities. If, on the other hand, the customer pays the duties and taxes after the deadline, customs will force the recipient to pay not only the duties and taxes but also a fine. There are, however, cases in which allowances are made: this avoids the payment of duties.
Goods prohibited for import into the USA
Regardless of the country of destination of the goods, those who are planning to ship to America must consider the fact that several products cannot be imported. The list of products in question includes alcohol and meat products. The United States has introduced a complete ban on the export of alcoholic beverages and perishable products to its territory if no export license is obtained. Brazil, for its part, requires an import license for alcoholic beverages (even if they are sent as gifts) and used material (such as machinery or equipment) that cannot be purchased within the country and is difficult to find abroad.
How to prepare a parcel destined for North and South America
For all its shipments, Europacco has always relied on proven couriers such as FEDEX, TNT or DHL. It usually takes between 5 and 10 working days for a shipment to reach its destination. If the package is to be shipped over a long period of time, the sender is advised to provide very solid packaging appropriate for the type of goods being shipped. The purpose of packaging is to prevent the goods from being damaged during transport. Special packaging material can be used, such as soft packaging, to cover each item. Often, those making a shipment cannot resist the temptation to use a box that has already been used previously, not considering the actual conditions that are no longer suitable for a new shipment. As for the type of packaging (internal and external), it must be different depending on the products to be sent and their fragility. The presence of fragile items or others that may be bulky (bicycles and the like) requires additional precautions.
