If your company is planning to import goods, it’s important to know all the benefits of IOR service.

To import any product to a serviced country, your company must have a physical presence or an agent is the import destination. The branch or the responsible person will be in charge of taking care of all the legal obligations enforced by the destination country’s customs. But having a representability abroad is not that simple, right?

If your company doesn’t have a representative in the importing country, it can use IOR services. The IOR – Importer of Record – is the entity responsible for ensuring the imported goods comply with all local laws, filing duty entry documents and paying import taxes for those goods. Hiring a freight forwarding company that provides IOR services, as GCE Logistics, can make your international shipping smooth and hassle free.
