Customs Value

What is Customs Value?

The total value of all merchandise in your shipment as appraised.

Determining customs value can be difficult and complex, and it is important to estimate the value of your shipment as accurately as possible. If customs officials at the destination country have reason to believe the valuation of your goods is not correct, they may detain your shipment for further investigation.
