A company that offers Delivery Duty Paid solutions, which can also be known as an Importer or Exported of Record, is a company that pays for the total costs associated with transporting the cargo all the way to the buyers’ door, being fully responsible for the cargo until it is received by the buyer. These responsibilities include paying for shipping costs, as well as simplifying the entire process by being in charge of every step along the way (e.g. compliance assessment, customs clearance, storage and warehousing).

However, as a freight forwarder, you might be wondering: why would Delivery Duty Paid (DDP) services be the best solution to attend my business’ needs?

Knowledge of price

Another advantage of this kind of service is that the landed cost is known at the time of the purchase and it will already include all of the taxes and fees that your cargo can possibly encounter until it reaches its destination. This is better for the buyer, since it ensures that they won’t have any surprises at the end of the freight or have to pay to any unexpected fares. Before you close the deal, the company responsible for providing you a DDP solution will analyze your necessity and show you what the price of the freight with all of these things already considered and included is going to be.


Hassle free

Freight forwarders already have a lot do on a daily basis and there is nothing better than being able to hire a company that attends their transportation needs in a complete way, where they will have nothing to worry about. This is basically what the DDP service offers, a hassle free transportation solution, where the company in charge will take care of everything for you, from picking up the cargo, doing quality control, taking care of its documentation, paying all the taxes and fares related to it and delivering it timely and safely to its final destination.

Lastly, but very importantly, hiring a DDP logistics provider will save you from having to outsource other companies to take care of specific parts of your cargo’s import or export process.  GCE Logistics, for example, operates as a licensed customs broker and will provide legal entity to act as an Importer of Record (IOR). This way the customer won’t have to deal with the costs of establishing legal entities in the country – e.g. office and warehouse rent or purchasing, staff salary, salary taxes and hardship allowances.
