What are the easiest ways to import goods from China?

Logistically, it’s pretty easy:

  • Find a shipping agent or let your factory find one.
  • Get a quote from the shipping agent.
  • Send them your packing slip, invoice and company details, including your company’s government ID (EIN if in the US).
  • Choose the correct harmonization code and confer with your factory/shipping agent.
  • Pay for the shipping and insurance.
  • Wait for the goods to arrive.
  • Pay any duty/taxes levied by your country’s customs once the goods arrive.

It’s really simple, actually, and it’s done thousands of times over every day all over the world.
