Customs is a common term in international shipping which refers to the duties, fees or taxes levied on goods transported from one country to another. These costs vary depending on the item and country and are over and above the carrier's cost to ship goods. Every country has its own rules and guidelines for this, but no matter where you're shipping, our online shipping tools can help you anticipate what to expect.
UPS.com web shipping collects vital information to submit shipment data as you proceed through the shipping process. But you can also choose to physically fill in the forms and include them with the shipment. Listed below are the most commonly-used international forms you may need as you import and export.
UPS Paperless® Invoices help you streamline the customs-clearance process. Upload any form electronically and transmit your data to customs offices across the globe.
