  • RE: IOR / Freight Forwarder

    Thank you both - The idea is for this to arrive via Fedex , so cross dock would not be an option I think.

  • RE: IOR / Freight Forwarder

    Hi @customs old-timer, Thanks for getting back to me on this. Basically, the routing options are very limited, so my colleague from our JFK office has come up with a "brilliant" idea of sending it over via FedEx Express and clearing it here under our EORI number as Home Use and then re-export it.

  • IOR / Freight Forwarder

    Hello, I'd like to ask for your advice on something. Here's a potential scenario: There's a shipment of Dangerous Good heading from Canada to Zambia. The freight forwarder in Canada and freight forwarder in the UK have agreed that the shipment will be sent to the UK by fast parcel courier. Can UK freight forwarder act as the IOR since they are not a part of the contract of sale, and once it entered the free circulation, re-export the shipment to Zambia? Thank you, K
