  1. A customs officer verifies that the paperwork completed for shipments are correct. International shipments must have commercial invoices. Once the paperwork is verified, the document will list a shipper and contact info of the receiver. The shipment will also include the export date and airway bill number.
  2. A customs officer will see what fees may be applied to a shipment. Depending on the type of goods, their value, and laws that the importing country enforces. If the value of goods surpasses a tax bracket, the officer will check to see if taxes and duties have been paid.
  3. If there are outstanding taxes and duties, customs will ask that they are paid. There are two options for payment, with one being DDU (Deliver Duty Unpaid) and the other being DDP (Deliver Duty Paid). As a result, if a shipment is marked as DDP, then a payment of taxes and duties were paid for. These services may be offered at a fixed price when you pay for a label. This process can be expensive as brokers are independent with differing fee charges. Brokerage, storage, late payment, and various fees may apply which will affect the total shipment fee.
  4. Once taxes and duties are paid, shipments are released. From this point, if paperwork, duties, and taxes are handled properly then the goods should be shipped to their destination.
