--and the fee is small. Almost 500 companies are participating.
E-EXPO USA is sponsored by Commerce's International Trade Administration.
to the 21st Century
it or not, in this age of computers, most American exporters and
their agents complete a federally-required "Shipper's Export Declaration"
(SED) by hand. The SED is then hand-delivered by messenger to the
cargo carrier and then to the U.S. Customs Service. Sounds like
19th Century technology to us! The U.S. Customs Service and the
Foreign Trade Division of the Census Bureau have developed a free,
voluntary, electronic filing program they hope will make exporters
jump to join.
