Additional customs services

Duties & tax advancement

On request, we can cover any duties and local taxes levied during customs clearance, so your shipment doesn’t get held up waiting for payment.


Delivery duties paid (DDP)

You can opt to take responsibility for any applicable customs duties and local taxes on your shipment, so the receiver doesn’t get the bill. We may be able to pay these on your behalf and charge it back to you.


Special clearance activities

We can help with non-standard customs declarations and transit documents in cases such as return for repair or temporary import/export.


Other governmental agencies

We’re here to advise and assist when additional government agencies and regulations are involved in clearing your shipment (e.g. medical or telecommunications equipment).
