La logística de las flores que llegan a los Estados Unidos para San Valentín

Los productos florales pueden ser más difíciles de llevar a los Estados Unidos que otras importaciones. Además de los requisitos de Aduanas y Protección Fronteriza (CBP), los importadores deben seguir las regulaciones del Departamento de Agricultura de los Estados Unidos (USDA). El USDA verifica que las importaciones agrícolas como las flores estén libres de plagas y enfermedades, entre otros.
