HOW IT WORKS
Express Import Services are as simple as a domestic or export shipments. The only difference is the driver will collect from the exporters location rather than yourself being the importer. Before your exporter is able send the package they will need the label produced on our system, this can be sent to the exporter automatically or you can choose to send this by email yourself. Import documentation is required, this will automatically be generated by the Portal during the booking process. Imports from EU countries to the UK will not require commercial invoices or country of origin certificates. Imports to the USA from Mexico or Canada will require a NAFTA statement on the commercial invoice.
Once you’re up and running it takes seconds to retrieve a quote from thousands of import locations across the globe.
To get started simply apply for a shipping account; our sales team will call to discuss your needs and tailor a solution for your business.
PREPARING YOUR SHIPMENT
Obviously imports are prepared by your exporter, however it's best practice to encourage them to use strong enough packaging and sufficient cushioning to protect the item to avoid breakages and disappointment.
Labels and documentation are sent to your exporter via email, you are also able to obtain a copy of the label via the World Options Portal.
