This innovative website also helps U.S. producers find export management,

can identify providers of shipping, translation, advertising, and
other export-related services too. Accessible on a state-by-state
basis, the website assists U.S. producers in locating export service
firms in a region of choice.
Companies who register will receive both a free on-line listing
and a free listing in the MyExports.comô Buyers' Guide to U.S.
