[DETROIT, Michigan– JANUARY [1], 2021]

Cavalry Logistics has been operating as a Customs Broker and Freight Forwarder for over Thirty Years. We are experts in International Trade. Below are a few updates from the industry.


US Customs marking requirements:

US Customs required most articles imported into the United States to be labeled with the correct country of manufacture. You must identify on your product where the item is manufactured. The end user or the product must be able to identify where the product that they are purchasing is manufactured. Identifying the correct country of manufacture can become complicated if you are assembling parts from multiple countries. Cavalry can assist with declaring the correct country of manufacture along with how your product is required to be labeled.

Us Customs also provides guidance on county of origin marking requirements for your products. You can find the publication here
