Customs Declaration Declaration of the contents of packages, upon request DHL or UPS, or in all non-express sea or air transport, to be sent by fax or email to the forwarder upon request if DHL or UPS; or upon arrival of goods at customs if using other means of transport.
Calculation of import duties Link to the European Community website for inspection of any import duties or restrictions. The Taric code must be indicated in the declaration, alternatively, the goods are described and the courier forwards.
Calculation of transport costs Air transport costs shall be calculated on the basis of the taxable weight (1 cubic metre = 167 Kg), where the highest of these parameters is applied. For example: a package of 0.5 cubic metres and a weight of 80 kg is taxed at 84 kg (167:2). The companies apply different rates depending on the type of transport, express (3 days) or traditional (5-6 days). The approximate all-inclusive calculation is about 8-11 USD/Kg for UPS and about 4,5-5,5 USD/Kg for normal airways.
These costs may be subject to seasonal fluctuations. We can reasonably calculate an incidence ranging from 14 to 16% of the value of the goods for air transport costs.
Sea transport costs are calculated on the basis of cubic metres/ton. The cost of one cubic metre is about 290 USD for the freight alone, excluding port handling and customs procedures costs. Transport takes 19 days plus an additional 10 days for the various operations and forwarding to the final destination. Maritime transport accounts for 10-20% of the value of the goods.
