Our fees are easy: shipping and duty charges plus 1%-3% of product cost gives you an insured, reduced/eliminated tariff & tax rate as well as a pass through US Customs with the ability to test on-site in a secure facility.
We provide complete customs pass-through to import/export for over 200 countries. Some allowing a zero tax incentive.
Some of the benefits of operating in a FTZ include:
We are a minority & woman owned business, eligible for 8(a) certification. This gives us near immediate access to over 280 FTZ's on or near Native American lands.
United States Customs and Border Protection (www.cbp.gov) review products and people who enter and exit the United States. Understanding every law and compliance issue for each product is not an easy task. Cannabidiol (CBD), a non-THC product of cannabis, greatly suffers as a result of this issue.
We found that approximately 20% and up to 30% of CBD products imported into the United States are damaged, confiscated, destroyed, delayed to the point of non-use or are missing due to unclear and inconsistent US Customs practices at the port of entry. Companies in the US that export CBD oils to Europe through online sales have reported over 15% of sales destroyed or returned due to US border issues.
Companies are not only losing product, they are losing visibility. Once CBD products arrive at a port of entry they are processed through US Customs. Once shipments reach customs, there is zero supply chain visibility. Shipments could process the same day, be held for weeks or altogether prevented from entry. This creates severe challenges to anyone that is depending on CBD products delivered in a timely manner.
Before the 2018 US Farm Bill federally legalized US farmers to grow industrial hemp, Forbes projected that US CBD sales would reach $2B by 2022. Now, in 2019, those projections are up by 10X ($20B). Europe outgrows the US hemp farmer by 8:1. Until the US improves and increases growing hemp in the states, there will continue to be a need to import CBD on a large-scale.
Once US farmers ramp up hemp growth, exports worldwide will increase dramatically.
We can warehouse abroad or nationally to drop ship as needed without unnecessary interference - with complete supply chain transparency. This also allows companies to take advantage of low, end-of-the-year pricing without paying inventory taxes.
We provide THC/CBD testing in various locations. With a contract for large importers, we will supply a testing station at your closest port. We also have contracts with several third party labs to use as needed.
