What is the Import Process?

The import process always begins with a purchase order.  Once the goods are manufactured, an importer must decide on the Incoterms®, pay for the remainder of the invoice (if not paid up front) and arrange transportation.

Scarbrough helps with every step of the way and can walk you through the process.  Watch this short snippet for a better understanding of the import process into the United States.
