5 Typical Problems People Have When Sending Internationally…Ring Any Bells?
- One. Sometimes, I find completing all the complex paperwork a real challenge. Whether it’s specialist exports, exhibition materials or general documentation – the complex rules, regulations and paperwork can be exceptionally daunting. Our service approach means we deal with it all- yup, every single thing –to make sure you stay in a happy place.
- Two. Do you only care about my delivery until you go home? Don’t worry, we’re not some soulless giant, and you’re not some tiny fish in a very large pond. You and your business matter to us and we work 24/7 to deliver the service you deserve.
- Three. I hate having to spend lots of time tracking, and worrying about where my consignment has gotten to. We track and trace right the way through your consignments journey and let you know the moment it has been delivered- and if there’s a problem we’ll start looking for the solution immediately.
- Four. I don’t like having to deal with a faceless, uncaring, call centre when I have a problem. One of the things our clients love is the personal attention and care we bring to them and their delivery needs. We all know that without you, we don’t have a business; so we couldn’t make it more personal if we hand delivered every consignment ourselves.
- Five. I’m never quite sure what hidden costs and surcharges I might get slapped with. No one likes to be quoted one price only to have some ‘surprise’ extras added on. The good news is you don’t have to worry. What we quote is what you pay. That’s it.

Useful things to know about getting your goods through customs with the least amount of problems.
Customs in almost any country in the world deal with thousands of items a day. They have detailed checklists and procedures and the closer you get to ticking all the boxes, the easier it is for your consignment to flow smoothly and avoid delays.
Typical requirements are: –
- You’ll need to provide a Commercial Invoice for most non- document items. This effectively provides the basis for all related documentation – shows the sale of goods from seller to buyer – and is used to identify, control and value the goods for customs duty and ensure they meet a countries import requirements. Typically, you’ll need to provide the original documentation and 2-3 copies.
- Often, you can download templates of Commercial Invoices or use business or personal stationery.
- You may need to provide a Certificate of Origin. This identifies the country of manufacture – which can matter because some countries restrict or give preference to imports from certain other countries. While the form can normally be generic, it must match the details on the Commercial Invoice.
Parcel weight and size
Individual parcels are charged either by weight or by dimension (volumetric). If there are several parcels in a consignment, the cost will be the sum of the weight of all the parcels rounded up to the nearest kilo.
