• Exporting & Certificates of Origin


  • The Wilmington Chamber of Commerce has joined the Carolina Chamber Export Assistance Center to assist NC exporters with the processing of export documents. Offering an electronic certification solution called essCert, we are helping exporters save time and resources, limiting potential for document errors, and providing document tracking and storage for international trade.

    essCert is streamlining the process of export documents, and is used by major metro Chambers like Los Angeles, Atlanta, Houston, Manhattan, Tampa, Charleston, New Jersey, Pittsburgh and Portland. 100% of Chambers in Australia and New Zealand use this software, and essCert is partnered with the ICC (International Chamber of Commerce), US Commercial Services, Census Bureau and International Business Council. To learn more about how essCert works visit esscert.com/how-it-works/.

    We invite you to visit the Carolina Chamber Export Assistance Center website, chamberexport.com to learn more, register your business with essCert and start processing your documents for international trade electronically. The Carolina Chamber Export Assistance Center is a partnership of the Alamance, Cary, Wilmington, Currituck, Garner, Haywood, Huntersville and Greater Raleigh Chambers of Commerce, and is powered by The Chamber for a Greater Chapel Hill-Carrboro.

    When you are exporting to a country that requires a raised embossed seal, a Certificate of Free Sale or other specific export documents from the Chamber of Commerce, please contact the Carolina Chamber Export Assistance Center for this service, as the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce will no longer be issuing these documents from our office.  

    For more information on our export document partnership, contact Kelly Sanderson at sanderson@wilmingtonchamber.org.
