Exporting to Brazil

Brazil is the 7th largest export partner for the United States, with export goods amounting to approximately $43.7 billion annually, about $515 million of which is in agricultural equipment. After agricultural equipment, the next biggest sectors are dairy products, snack foods, and feeds/fodders.  Shipping to Brazil can be very complicated, time consuming and confusing. Penalties for late documentation presentation in Brazil can be up to USD$5000 per HBL.  Good thing Scarbrough handles large weekly consolidations to Brazil from various vendors across North America!  We are experts with years of experience moving shipments across the borders smoothly through tough Brazilian Customs.
