Mexico is similar to other countries, when it comes to export shipping documentation. A decent amount of paperwork is required when shipping to Mexico. Some of the important documents required to make exporting process easier include:
• Bill of lading, Commercial invoice and Certificate of origin
• Packing lists, Sales contract and Proforma invoice
• AES filing (when exporting from the US) and B13 filing (when exporting from Canada)
• Insurance policy
Additional cargo insurance is very important when shipping to Mexico, as Mexican carriers hardly offer any liability once the cargo is on Mexican soil. Documentation also depends on the items you are exporting and where you are exporting them from. You might need additional documentation – to be able to do the customs clearance. It is better to consult a company that specializes in shipping to Mexico.
Know About the Modes of Transportation
Goods entering Mexico from the USA and Canada are mainly transported by ground via the US-Mexico Border. All other goods imported into Mexico are transported by Ocean, mostly through the ports of Veracruz, Manzanillo, Lazaro Cardenas and Altamira. These ports handle most of the importations coming from other countries like South Korea, China, Japan, or Europe.
Transportation within the Mexican territory is done over the road with rail and seas freight. The road system covers almost the entire country, though most of it is in poor condition.
