What if the grain is to be re-exported from the U.S.?
Once traded beyond the first point of delivery, we address the grain transaction under the Grain Commercial module on this website. For any grain that is going to be re-exported from the U.S., it is the exporter and his supplier’s responsibility to ensure the commodity meets the trading, import and export requirements of the U.S. and the destination country. Commodity specific export requirements may be available by contacting the information sources listed in the answer to “What other information is important for grain deliveries in the U.S.?” In most cases, once a grain shipment has been cleared by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP), it can move within the U.S.. In cases where an import permit was required, the importer is still obligated to follow all conditions set out in an import permit. More information can be found in the Grain Commercial FAQ.
