How to Prepare for Your GHY Meeting

You’ve booked your meeting with us and we are excited to chat with you. How can you prepare for our meeting? We’ve outlined what you need to know.

Understand what you are shipping.

Truck, Air, Ocean, Courier or Rail

Have a description of your goods.
Preferably a web-link to your product for our tariff classification – this determines your duty and tax amount.

Understand the value of your shipment.

Be prepared to discuss the origin of your goods.

Important: To avoid delays and storage costs, please do not ship your goods without confirmation of an account with GHY.
