    Default shipping to Mexico

    I have been asked to build some fanning magnets for a plant in Mexico. I have built these before for the Corporate main plant in Michigan and sent them to the Alabama plant, so I know they like them.
    My questions are about shipping, especially across the border, the lady in Mexico sent me an e-mail with the info for their customs broker.
    I do not mind crating these up and dropping off at a truck terminal, but I do not want to get into a bunch of hassles with this.
    If anyone has any experience with this sort of thing I would be glad to hear any pointers.

    Also I am located in Indiana. Thanks, Tim.

    I have shipped quite a bit of stuff to Mexico. It all goes to a broker and they get it over the border. Most of the time it goes well. If the plant in Mexico uses the same people it should not be a problem. There has been a few times where some stuff didn't make it. Somehow just disappeared! You have to list everything in there on your paperwork for the broker.

    Where is the broker? Laredo?

    The broker is:

    MAVAL Agencia Aduanal SC

    Mariposa Industrial Park II

    1140 West Industrial Park II

    Suites 3 & 4

    Tel520)377-0592


    I can only assume it is in Mexico.
    What paperwork will I need, cert. of origin, pack list(of course).
    anything else?

    Thanks for your help, this is like running blind in a forest.

    Best thing is call the broker and discuss it with them. They do it alll the time and know best.

    I believe they need an itemized list. It's all about taxes.

    Where in Mexico? Have you been there?

    Default Best yet!

    Have your customer arrange shipping! Tell them to have their carrier pick it up at your place of business. This is what I have done. NO LIABILITY!

    We ship stuff to Mexico a few times a month.
    All our pallets have to be made of kiln dried wood to get through the border.

    They're certified I guess you'd call it, and have a authorization number and a tree looking thing branded/burned onto the boards the pallets are made of.

    Check on what your shipping cartons have to be made of.
    It might save ya the trouble & expense of having your shipment re-crated.

    We have thousands of Mexicans in our small Indiana town,maybe you could strap your freight on a few of their backs and send them south.I don't know if they could find their way back to Mexico though,they seem to like the weather here,and all their freedom to commit crime.

    That's the way I would do it. If you set up the shipping and it gets lost or stolen, they'll look to you to make things right. Uh-uh.

    Wasn't NAFTA supposed to make all of that possible? LOL
