Ten Mistakes US Businesses Make Shipping to Canada
Call Out: U.S. businesses frequently underestimate the complexity of expanding to Canada, and make the process harder than it has to be!
One Pennsylvania-based musical instrument manufacturer was surprised when U.S. Customs questioned whether or not the wood used in some of its products was eligible for export. Another business, a Tennessee-based health products manufacturer was shocked by the high cost of shipping, only to learn that its U.S.-based logistics provider was sending its products to Canada – via air! These are two examples of the types of mishaps that occur regularly as U.S. businesses seek to expand to the Canadian market.
