Q: Is it legal for Americans to trade medical supplies overseas ?

Have a offer on the table that Russians want masks and supplier is in China and facilitator says that buyers are now procuring orders but I've not seen proof yet

Getting conflicting reports

We can

we cant

This is how it started:

Hello!

I have a buyer from Russia for respirator masks

Regular, nothing fancy

It’s for Russia, it didn’t have to be n96

How our sellers/suppliers act:

CIF Destination Port B2B Price for 20ft FCL MOQ: P@CIF = C(1+EM) + SC + TI + C(1+IM)

1. C = Cost at Loading Port

2. EM = Exporter Margin @ 25%

3. SC = Shipping Cost

4. TI = Import/Export Tax & Insurance

5. IM = Importer Margin @ 25%

A: This sounds like a valuable service you are providing to protect people and it is commendable. But the question is very fact-intensive and crosses over a number of different areas involving bulk freight, where it's possible that import-export or shipping consultants who are close to these types of consignments could be the best experts, particularly due to ever-changing developments in the health crisis. Good luck
