How do I generate an MID Code for US import?

When you look at generating a MID code you will need to ensure that your manufacturing supplier has provided their full business name and postal address. Once you have this information the following steps are taken to build the MID Code:                                            

1. Find the country two letter ISO code
2. Take the first three letters of the manufacturer’s first name and the first three letter of the second name (if applicable).                                                                                      
3. Select the largest digits, up to four, from the address line.
4. Take the first three letters of the manufacturer’s city name
