The current process is as of July 1st, 2017 because US customs do change important process regularly.
In this episode, we go over importation step-by-step to the USA for sea shipping under EXW. We are going to use China as an example since most products are Made In China.
Step 1: POA - Allow the freight forwarder to handle your cargo
Step 2: Pick up in from the supplier
Step 3: AMS - Automatic Manifest System - Must be completed 72
hours before vessel sail. If not, it cargo will not be loaded and importers increase their chance of inspection and fines.
Step 4: ISF - Importer Security Filing "10+2" - Must be completed 24
hours before vessel sail. If not, importers increase their chance of inspection and fines up to $5000. We have yet to see this fine but US Customs has announce for many years.
Step 5: Arrival Notice - Summary alert of imported cargo being import to the importer. Provide by the freight forwarder after the vessel sail.
Step 6: Invoice and Packing list - Shipper gives it to the consignee/importer. Importer confirms it is correct and give them to the freight forward.
Step 7: Customs clearance
Final Step: Deliver the cargo to our warehouse for processing: inspect, storage, label and release to final destination.
Major errors that importers make:
- No "Made in _____" marking
- Master Carton marking
- FDA, DOT, USFWS, and Certificate for toy product. For product that needs to go through these agency, without them product cannot clear customs.

Do you handle all of this for customers? I need to ship products from China and was told I need to ship by sea. I know it cost less, but is it enough of a savings to justify the time it takes?
Can I still get it door to door even by sea?
+WorldCraft Logistics TV I was already told by my manufacturer in China that the orders are getting too big for air freight. So I need to get ready for shipping by sea.
I can't seem to find your contact information. How do I proceed? How do I hire you? What is my first step in getting everything ready for you to help me, so there are no surprises?
Thanks for the quick reply.
Yes, we handle all these steps for our customer. 97% of the world cargo is moved by sea. The shipping cost by air doesn't justify to move any cargo but electronic and urgent shipment. Let me know if you have more questions
A trigger is a named PL/SQL unit that is stored in the database and executed ( fired ) in response to a specified event that occurs in the database.
Overview of Triggers.
A trigger is a named program unit that is stored in the database and fired (executed) in response to a specified event. The specified event is associated with either a table, a view, a schema, or the database, and it is one of the following:
A database manipulation (DML) statement ( DELETE , INSERT , or UPDATE )
A database definition (DDL) statement ( CREATE , ALTER , or DROP )
A database operation ( SERVERERROR , LOGON , LOGOFF , STARTUP , or SHUTDOWN )
The trigger is said to be defined on the table, view, schema, or database.
A DML trigger is fired by a DML statement, a DDL trigger is fired by a DDL statement, a DELETE trigger is fired by a DELETE statement, and so on.
An INSTEAD OF trigger is a DML trigger that is defined on a view (not a table). The database fires the INSTEAD OF trigger instead of executing the triggering DML statement. For more information, see Modifying Complex Views (INSTEAD OF Triggers).
A system trigger is defined on a schema or the database. A trigger defined on a schema fires for each event associated with the owner of the schema (the current user). A trigger defined on a database fires for each event associated with all users.
A simple trigger can fire at exactly one of the following timing points :
Before the triggering statement executes.
After the triggering statement executes.
Before each row that the triggering statement affects.
After each row that the triggering statement affects.
A compound trigger can fire at more than one timing point. Compound triggers make it easier to program an approach where you want the actions you implement for the various timing points to share common data. For more information, see Compound Triggers.
