Some countries won't accept shipping of certain above bulk material without paying a hefty tax (custom duty) first. I don't know about the specific terms per country but they vary from place to place. I think if you are shipping from country A to country B in the same trade zone, it is much easier. But do your calculations first. Is it better to ship parts before assembling them yourself, or shipping the off-the-shelf equipment? Which one will be the most cost effective for you? Think along those terms.
Also try this small tool for calculating charges from Fedex. Please note that some manufacturers/countries are more willing to factor in charges (eg Swiss Badog) to make it easier on you. If you have any more questions I will be glad to help
