Export Terms

Under the exporter/importer business relationship there are obligations we each need to meet. Foreign importers are required to register and clear our coffee products with their Customs Service and responsible government agencies. Many importers employ brokers to speed up the application process and biosecurity inspection services. Once the necessary permits and certifications are granted, business can begin.

All export orders fulfilled by Kafecina Coffee will include the following  documents and settlement terms:

  • Proper labeling
  • Product samples are available
  • All shipments are covered by insurance
  • A purchase order from the overseas buyer
  • A purchase order agreement from Kafecina
  • The terms of payment are advance TT payment
  • Terms of delivery agreed to with the import broker
  • Export permit from the Mexican government agency
  • Export invoice, export packing list, certificate of origin
  • Phytosanitary certificate issued by Mexican government agency
  • Inco terms are typically FOB or any other Inco terms deemed necessary
  • Shipments are palletized in 20’ or 40’ refrigerated containers (LCL or FCL)
  • After completion of export customs clearance either by exporter or Customs broker, Bill of Lading or AWB will be issued by the carrier.
