Is anyone regularly sending small parcel shipments from the UK to US FBA warehouses?
I’m struggling to work out the paperwork side of things, specifically for UPS, an have a couple more questions.
– What’s the best/cheapest carrier you use?
Seems like parcel2go, interparcel etc can’t deal with the paperwork side of things so you have to go direct to carrier. Is that right?
Whats the cheapest option for small / low value parcels? 2.5kg £150 value as an example.
Annoyingly I can get this for around £20 with UK Mail (who won’t send DDP) but goes up to £40+ with other couriers when booking direct
– Assuming UPS is being used, how do you get the paperwork right?
Specifically how to I make sure that Amazon aren’t the Importer of Records
– Do I really need to send DDP (duty paid) if the value is low
UPS want to charge an extra £15 or thereabouts for DDP. But if the value of the consignment is low enough to not trigger any duties in the US then presumably I could send normally (DDU), knowing that while Amazon would be responsible for the duty, there won’t actually be any to pay.
Am I right here or am I asking for trouble?
Any help much appreciated! Can’t believe how tricky it seems to get this right!
