Have you thought about taking a leap across the pond? With a GDP of approximately $20.513 trillion, the United States is the world’s largest economy and holds a huge potential for small businesses.
France is the U.S.’ third largest trading partner: In 2019, France and the US traded more than $138 billion in goods and services. The two countries also have strong investment ties, with the US being the largest foreign investor in France while in turn also being a top destination for French investment. These bilateral direct investments are key to the French-US relationship and a large number of jobs depend on them. Almost 5,000 French subsidiaries are located in the US, employing a total of almost 730,000 people.
Take advantage of this economic giant and the existing trading and investment relationship and start expanding into the US market. New regulatory changes and tariffs introduced in recent years made it as easy and attainable as ever to take the step, and we are here to help you as you dip your toes into the exporting ocean.

If you are looking to send a time-sensitive parcel, the morning delivery service is your best option: A parcel is delivered within one to two days before 10.30 AM in major business areas in the US.
As a more economical express option, go with a delivery in one to two business days by the end of the day.
For shipments that are not urgent, choose our standard economy solution that’s based on distance and takes up to four business days.
Parcels shipped to the US are going to go through customs clearance, which can be an intimidating process. But it doesn’t have to be. The most important document you need to clear customs is the commercial invoice. It describes the goods and their value and is needed when shipments cross international borders to determine the customs duties that need to be paid.
To help guide you through each section of the commercial invoice guide, you can find this commercial invoice guide useful, aiming to make the process of clearing customs a breeze.
And, with the new de minimis threshold, it’s even easier to ship parcels to the US. If the goods you are shipping to the US fall below this threshold, no formal customs procedures are required and no duties, fees, or taxes are collected. While this threshold used be $200, it was recently raised to $800, making it cheaper and easier to ship to the US. What does this increased de minimis threshold mean for your business?
