Can the goods officially declared at the customs by DHL be free from customs clearance?

Amazon, a platform that all sellers know about, has become the popular platform for many brands because of the huge flow. If you want to know how to read and make effective use of Amazon's shipping policy, you need to understand Amazon's warehousing and logistics model.

Amazon's seller delivery mode is divided into FBM and FBA. What are the advantages and disadvantages of these two modes ?

FBA mode

The model requires delivery to Amazon's designated free warehouse for unified management and delivery of goods.

Advantages: Amazon strongly recommends this mode. Buyers can receive the goods quickly and can enjoy the quality storage service provided by Amazon.

Disadvantages: the need to do inventory may increase the capital pressure, and making an appointment for warehouse takes time to wait.

FBM mode

The model does not require delivery to the Amazon warehouse, customer can send directly to the buyer or free warehouse.

Advantages: flexible and controllable inventory, more independent management.

Disadvantages: buyers may wait for a long time. Amazon does not recommended this mode.

In order to make their products standout in many sellers and many links, after experiencing brand advertising, low price spiral, many sellers start striving on volume logistics delivery time and have to choose the official recommended FBA warehouse delivery, because the FBA performs local delivery, achieving fast speed, low error rate, easiness to be recommended, and other advantages. Choosing Amazon FBA warehouse for product warehousing and delivery has become the affirmatively chosen item for seller.

Choosing reliable cooperative logistics providers to deliver goods to FBA warehouse naturally becomes the first step for many sellers to sell. Then what follows is another problem that is very important but potentially overlooked.

Do goods need to be cleared independently, and how to clear fast?

Generally speaking, customs clearance refers to the import customs clearance after the goods reach the destination. The most important factor in customs clearance is the import tax policy of the importing country.

Due to the volume, weight, and value of the goods that sellers sell and send, sellers can choose from sea, air and international express to complete FBA head transportation.

After the air and sea FBA head transport arrives at the destination, it is required to make an appointment for warehouse before entering the warehouse.

International Express delivery (DHL, FEDEX, UPS, etc.) can enter the warehouse without making an FBA entry reservation. Therefore, for sellers: if they want fast replenishment and fast warehouse entry, international express delivery has become the first choice of FBA warehouse entry.

Seller A sent a batch of goods to Amazon American warehouse through the Hong Kong UPS channel deputized by the TakeSendShip. Since TakeSendShip could directly operate the customs clearance options such as goods declaration in the background of the website members, seller A did not check the tariff to be paid by the sender. As a result, the goods were intercepted at the customs inspection after arriving at the destination. Since TakeSendShip is a long-term friendly cooperation agent of UPS, UPS did not directly return the goods on a regular basis after receiving the abnormal information, which reserved  valuable time for the seller (if the goods were returned, it would consume time and effort).

After receiving the email, TakeSendShip customer service staff contacted the seller in time and informed the information. The seller fully entrusted TakeSendShip to help him solve the customs clearance problem. In the end, through the UPS's agent status, TakeSendShip successfully solved the customs clearance problem and booked the positions for the customer at a price lower than the market price.

With the support of the US Customs, the regular goods of Amazon specially customized single-ticket express goods (DHL, FEDEX, UPS) will be released by the customs directly after checking that the sender pays the tariff and the goods are not abnormal without dealing with the customs clearance problem. Special note: This preferential support policy applies only to Amazon USA warehouse. Neither Canada nor Mexico or other North America and European countries have this preferential support policy, making it necessary to understand the customs clearance policy arrangement of the destination country before the FBA head logistics. Do not directly send international express for ignorance of the customs clearance may cause the goods to be stranded or returned.
