It will take 2 days for shipping to the port city of Ningbo. The freight will take 3 weeks on the open ocean, and will arrive in Los Angeles approximately a month from today. Domestic shipping will be your responsibility, you can make arrangements with the pier in Los Angeles.

A: Fine. We will handle domestic shipping, but what about customs? Will we have to pay tariff on our imports? I hope we don't run into any problems with the border control.
