Choose the right 3PL provider

The words “customs” and “duties” have kept several shipping companies from operating overseas, primarily because they don’t understand the rules. So when you deal with a 3PL provider who does not understand how customs work, goods are stuck with authorities, and if the paperwork is not correct, your goods are lost forever. That won’t happen with us.

Why pay duties to the government?

Revenue generation
Import taxes are a crucial source for government to make revenue. They take a percentage on every import to increase their trade revenue.

Protect national industries from competition
Competition is fierce, and national industries need to be protected from global competition. Imposing taxes on certain goods discourages customers from importing them.

Prevent selling products that are below market value
At times, import taxes are levied on products that are deemed below market value (called anti-dumping). This helps stabilize the market value.

How are import duties calculated?

Every country has a different method to calculate import duties. Here are three common ways.

Percent of the import value
This is the simplest method to calculate import taxes. You pay a percentage of the total value of the goods imported. For example, if the total value of the goods imported is $500 and the import tax is 10%, you pay $50 as import tax.

Per product rate
The second step is a slightly complicated method. Instead of paying a percentage of the overall value, you pay a percentage on each product. For example, if five products are imported, a percentage is collected for each product, and the rate can vary.

Weight-based
The third method is simple, similar to the first. Tax is calculated based on weight (per pound or kg depending on the country).
