frequently asked questionS

What is customs compliance?

Customs compliance is the adherence to trade regulations of whichever countries you are exporting from and importing to. Every country has a different set of regulations that may change from time to time, as in the case of trade embargoes or export controls. To learn more about how we can help you manage customs compliance, explore our Product Compliance Check.

What is delivery or shipment exception?

A delivery exception (or shipment exception) occurs when a shipment is temporarily delayed or stalled in transit. There are many possible reasons, such as customs delays due to wrong Harmonized System (HS) codes or poor documentation. You can reduce your risk of a delivery exception by using our Product Compliance Check to ensure that your shipments pass through customs smoothly.

What is export control?

Export control refers to regulations on exporting certain items that are considered controlled, such as military goods, precious stones, currency, and more.
