Good Form

Small-business exporters, most of whom would rather have a root canal than fill out the stack of U.S. Customs forms required of them, can now breathe a lot easier. A new CD-ROM disk allows exporters to fill out forms on their computers and then print, mail or fax them to their destinations.

QuickX offers more than 120 pages of U.S. Customs forms in an electronic format that you can fill out by tabbing from field to field, making corrections as needed and printing out as many copies as you want right from your computer.

In addition to forms, QuickX also offers key regulatory information, such as the full text of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (Titles 15 and 19) and a list of all Standard Industrial Codes. Need a directory of U.S. Embassies? International banks? QuickX has those, too, in addition to freight companies, Internet resources and an extensive industry glossary.

The cost for all this convenience? $249. To order QuickX from Englewood, Colorado-based APX Data LLC, call (800) 500-4338, or for more information, call (303) 850-7193.
