Over the past two years it has become significantly more difficult to serve International Customers from the US:
- Freight costs have increased significantly
- Import restrictions have become much tighter
- Duties and taxes have increased and are being enforced much more systematically
- International market preferences also differ markedly from those in the US. Fact: On average only 50% of the promotional items selected for a US audience are appealing to European customers.
As a result, International Customers ordering promotional items from the United States face high shipping costs and unforeseeable delays in customs and uncertain currency exchange rates.
