The U.S. Commercial Service’s Connections Solve Exporter Problems
Zephyr International, a manufacturer of helicopter hoist maintenance and repair equipment, contacted the U.S. Commercial Service (CS) for help resolving an exporting challenge. The South Carolina-based company faced difficulty when attempting to export repaired items back to its client in Germany.
Phil Minard, director of CS Charleston, stepped in to resolve the issue. He provided Zephyr with guidance on Schedule B classification and the correct export documentation. CS trade experts in Germany also consulted with German Customs officers.
