Additional Exports

TO OTHER COUNTRIES

OTHER COUNTRIES AND DOMESTIC EXPORTS

There are many different types of export documents and transaction certificates. As export market opportunities continue to grow due to organic equivalency and other trade arrangements, the complexity of properly documenting exports also increases.


Exporting in the U.S. and Other Countries

Export documents are not an official requirement for domestic sales and most foreign shipments, but they are often requested by the customer. These requests are satisfied using a transaction document called the OTCO Official Transaction Certificate (TC). For countries such as Korea, Mexico, Canada and those in the US, OTCO can provide this Transaction Certificate. The Transaction Certificate is a load specific document that verifies compliance to the NOP standards. No additional certification criteria apply.
