FOB, Freight Forwarders, Nearest Port...I'm Confused 20 replies,15174 views

#1
I am looking to import stuff from China to the USA. I have a few questions, though. First, how do I find out what the my nearest port is? When someone was going to ship items FOB by sea, they asked me that. Second, how do I get my items from that port to me? Is that what a freight forwarder does? Would they break down the 20 foot shipping containing, or would they actually bring me that container? Because I don't really want it. Also, would I have to fill out customs forms and such, or since the freight forwarder is picking up the items, does he do it?

Thanks.
