IOR EOR Services

We are aware of the amount of freight forwarding options you have when choosing someone to handle your cargo’s export or import processes. Each one of them will offer you different services, at different price ranges and it’s up to you what to consider when choosing the right one to fulfill your transportation needs. However, there are a few things to take into consideration when making that decision, and today we will speak about one in particular: hire a global forwarder that can also provide you with IOR/EOR services as part of their services.

IOR Importer of Record EOR Exporter of Record Services Explained…

Let’s start by recapping the basic concept of IOR EOR services (Importer and Exporter of Record). An importer or exporter of record is the entity in charge of ensuring transported goods are in compliance with all the country’s federal import and export regulations (customs, paying fees and taxes, etc). In other words, your IOR EOR services provider will be the legal representation you need in the country you are exporting to or from, in order to ensure the whole process runs as smooth as it can.
