If you are shipping to Germany, there are a couple of ways to get around the duties. First of all you need to determine whether or not your product has duty payable. Your Customs broker will be able to tell you that. You will need the H.S. Classification. If you do not want to have to deal with the customs issues, then you can have the customer in Germany import the product to their facility instead of you exporting it. This way it will be up to them to handle the duty and taxes. Another way is to ship it to them and mark on the Export Documents "Consignee to pay all duties, taxes and brokerage".
As per your transportation requirements, you will need to determine whether you are sending it air or ocean. By sending it ocean, LCL (less-than container load) would be more cost effivient for you, as long as you are not worried about the amount of time it takes to get there (could take up to a month) Air will be expensive but get there in a few days.
I hope this helps...
