e.g. USA has a quota on clothing. All EU countries have quotas on
textiles and clothing which you must add on to the cost. South Africa charge: 40% import
duties and 14% VAT (sales tax) but no quota on the amount you can
import of clothing. Remember also the more you export the cheaper
it is. When you pay for items worth say 5000 baht you may find the
shipping is double. Thailand has quotas too on coffee and rice.
SHIPPING INTO THE USA: Has risen and now based daily. Due to the terrorism threats;
oil fluctuations, insurance hikes many exports & stand alone products. eg. wood tables in FCL will have a set
charge. However when shipping multiple goods in FCL loads then the
tarrifs for FCL will increase. As at August 2004 the freight charges are
subject to change daily due to oil fluctuation prices / terrorism
/ insurance / $ changes / & the freight you wish to export. Items like tin,
aluminium products have
increased in Thailand by 15% making it hard on Thai exporters
competing & China is on a new phase of development making some
items like steel, cement prices to increase. LCL into some ports
are now based on the nearest 0.5% over the 1cbm. Shipping rate are
changing daily now. If shipping foodstuffs & cosmetics or
chemical bottles to the USA the
companies you buy off must be affiliated with the FDA in the USA.
