USA – Wood Products

US customs have increased their checks and have become stricter with commodities across all imports. This has resulted in a lot of wood products being stopped due to insufficient documentation.

It is imperative that all shipments use the correct commodity codes and are supported with the correct documentation to reduce the chances of shipments being stopped.
