Successfully Navigate Through Customs

Delays at border crossings are not only inconvenient, but they can risk productivity, incur contract penalties, and even cost you customers.

Unless you’re shipping documents of no commercial value, two copies of a commercial invoice must accompany every international shipment. This is essential for customs since it discloses the contents of your shipment and allows officials to determine duty rates.

A missing or incorrectly completed commercial invoice is almost certainly going to mean a border delay.

Using UPS Paperless® Invoice

Now there’s a free UPS solution, available through UPS CONNECT, which offers a better way to navigate customs. UPS Paperless Invoice transmits data forms directly to the destination customs office so that your shipment can be processed almost immediately. And it can even reduce the likelihood of customs holds by up to 69 percent.
