The role of ecommerce in the modernization of customs processes

December 16, 2022

The growth of e-commerce has energized the economy in an unprecedented way. As a consequence, it has also been an accelerator of changes in the treatment of information exchange with the customs tax agency.

What are the main requirements for managing ecommerce operations?

  • Logistics operators have a clear business opportunity to offer the various e-commerce platforms comprehensive logistics solutions.
  • Offer a comprehensive service to customers: What is expected of the logistics operator is that it can handle customs clearance, while managing the bonded warehouse and the transportation of the goods, including the last mile.
  • Robust technological platform: For this, it is necessary to have a platform that meets all operational needs. In this way, the traceability and efficiency of the entire logistics chain is maintained.
  • Chain integration: It is very important to have data integration processes in place to streamline the processing of the necessary operations, especially for large volume customers/operations.
  • Why opt for the DDP (Delivery Duty Paid) Incoterm?

    Most carriers do not send DDP (Delivery Duty Paid) but assume responsibility for the customer to pay later. It may not seem like it is their problem, but the customer will receive the package and will be billed later or hold the package until they pay.
