Customs clearance


We provide two options, so you can choose what works best for your shoppers and your business in countries around the world.

Depending on the destination country, the delivery service and your individual business needs, we offer both Customs Pre-paid (DDP) and Customs Paid At Destination (DDU) solutions.

What is Customs Pre-paid (DDP)?

With Customs Pre-paid services, parcels are delivered to your customers and any duty and taxes are invoiced back to you. You can include these anticipated costs in your selling prices - or as an additional upfront payment request - so you don't lose out, and your shopper can see a fully landed price on your store, and has no surprise additional costs when their parcel arrives. 

What is Customs Paid At Destination (DDU)?

For Customs Paid At Destination services, customers pay their own taxes, duties and fees through our secure portal. They can also securely upload their ID if this is a customs requirement within their country. This process takes longer and is more involved for the shopper, but in some markets and for some order values it is the preferred solution.

How does our paperless customs clearance solution work?

Asendia combined e-paq and asendia

Our customs clearance portal collects duty, taxes and ID on behalf of your customers so their parcels can clear customs swiftly.

Our paperless system offers early notification to local customs offices once items are in transit, reducing the potential for delays.

We enable you to quickly view which orders are awaiting customer action or customs approval. Parcels can be held during ID upload and while duty payments are being collected. If the customer fails to do this, there are no returns to be managed, supporting your corporate social responsibility.
