The aim of the import process is basically a transaction or exchange of goods and services and nowadays it is a common practice worldwide. In all countries around the world the importation and exportation of goods are limited by import quotas and mandates from the customs authority which change from country to country. The amount of fees and time to arrange the process may differ from country to country and it is influenced by many different variables. Some of them for example are required time for all necessary documents, cost and time of freight and time of waiting for the custom. Nowadays the import-export process is a constant in our societies especially in Mexico. In order to understand better and in detail this process it was decided to analyze in particular the example of one company which is dedicated to this practice.
