If your an American citizen you might want to start by obtaining an import/export license.

https://www.usa.gov/import-export

My Canadian licenses were free of charge

Familiarize yourself with the HST codes, your Broker will need to know the tariff classification on the goods your importing.

https://hts.usitc.gov/


Multiple carriers maybe involved with logistics, which your broker will arrange payment to each on your behalf.

I use a Broker from Winnipeg never had a face to face, all communications and documents via emails, you will need a flatbed scanner to scan signed and digitized documents or create a digitized signature file that you can past into a document.

Or you can purchase a digital capture device.

I probably should have put this in the "everything else" section.
