Neha Kanodia: I just came to know about your website howtoexportimport.com which is quite informative. I am into garments business manufacturing ladies tshirts, tops, pants, school uniforms from last 3 years. Now i want to start my export business. I am getting export query from many importers about the pricing, but do not know how to tell my price as do not know the charges involved so that i can put may margin accordingly. what other charges will be levied besides my manufacturing cost like bill of lading, insurance, freight, terminal handling charges, customs clearance charges? how can i determine that so that when i know these charges then only i can tell importer that i can suppl at this rate? Besides as an exporter should i go for FOB, CF or CIF? Please suggest that also.

Deepak Vijay: Please explain anyone what is bill of landing and the approximately amount maximum.
