Shipping To & From Mexico

Shipping to/from Mexico is not as difficult as you would expect, but there is a process to follow, we will help you prepare accordingly:

  • 1 First, identify all the parties involved in your import/export transaction: Exporter of record, Importer of record, Mexican Custom Broker, American Custom Broker and Transportation Company
  • 2 Second, identify all the paperwork needed to complete the transaction: Commercial invoice with corresponding Harmonized Code (HTS), Packing List, Pedimento, inbond, entry/E-manifest.
  • 3 Here is a brief overview of the border crossing process:
    1. Once shipment arrives to the border, you must wait until the paperwork is ready to begin with the clearing process: Pedimento; provided by the Mexican Custom Broker, Entry/AES File; provided by the American Custom Broker and E-manifest (only on northbound shipments); provided by the transportation company.
    2. The clearing process: Once you have all the paperwork ready it’s time to begin the clearing process, get in line at MX and US Customs; if selected, your shipment can undergo inspection at either US or MX customs, before the final clearance the shipment can possibly undergo a DOT inspection (only northbound shipments).
  • 4 Once your shipment has gone through all the necessary inspections at both customs, your shipment is cleared and ready to go to its final destination.
