International trade is an economic activity between countries/companies. As you know, each country has its own corporate culture, its own currency and its own economic system. This system requires certain documents. These documents may change depending on the country, regulations and means of transport. Trade agreements between importer and supplier or between countries require documentation to protect the rights of both parties during trade. These documents belong to 5 groups in order to systematically apply these different rules. These are business documents, official documents, transport documents, insurance documents and financial documents. In summary, as a freight forwarder, I understand how important the transportation process and costs are for all parties to transactions. In order to avoid additional costs or delays in the arrival of the cargo, these documents are crucial and must be carefully prepared.

When it comes to selling and shipping your products outside the United States, there are standard documents used for export. To find out what documents are required for an export shipment, the best starting point is your foreign customer/importer or carrier.

The commercial invoice is a legal document between the exporter and the buyer (in this case, the foreign buyer), which clearly indicates what goods are sold and how much the customer must pay. The commercial invoice is one of the most important documents used by customs to determine customs duties. A commercial invoice is an invoice for goods from seller to buyer.
These documents are often used by governments to determine the true value of goods when setting tariffs. Governments that use the commercial invoice to control imports often indicate its form, content, number of copies, language to be used, and other characteristics.
