Transportation of Hydrazine to Russian Launch Sites


A major U.S.-based chemical manufacturer.


The client needed to transport Hydrazine, a highly dangerous and toxic chemical used in rocket fuels, to launch sites in Russia as quickly and cheaply as possible.


As in the case of the joint venture that imported satellites into Russia, our legal experts crafted sophisticated legal arguments that allowed the rocket fuel to qualify for temporary import status and thus be imported duty free because the fuel was ultimately “exported” into outer space. Express Trade Capital also oversaw the entire shipping process, ensuring that the fuel arrived safely and on time at the launch sites.
