Shipping networking equipment with DDP terms can be stressful and problematic, especially when shipping high value, large scale IT equipment. Even multinational corporations may not have knowledge of the complex procedures and compliance requirements established within the various countries where their end users are located. Additionally, businesses may not have a local entity that can act as the consignee on the shipment or a trusted representative to fulfil the final leg of the deployment – making international shipping complicated and risky.

DDP (otherwise known as delivery duties paid) shipping terms can be very high risk for business – both in terms of delays and unforeseen extra costs.

From co-ordinating freight, to navigating the intricate details of customs compliance, we provide an end-to-end solution for our clients through our unparalleled expertise and vast network in more than 200 countries and territories.

What is DDP?

Delivered Duty Paid (DDP) is a type of delivery agreement between an international shipper and receiver. If goods are shipped with DDP terms, the shipper is responsible for delivering the goods to the receiver.

Why are DDP terms risky for businesses sending goods internationally?

Shipping on DDP terms means that throughout the entire importing process, the shipper assumes all responsibilities for the shipment – which can be extremely risky in an unknown territory. The business may not have any knowledge or experience on the various procedures established within a foreign country. Additionally, DDP terms state that the shipping company is liable for all costs associated with transporting goods to the buyer – up until the goods have been received. Should the goods not have the correct compliance documentation, licences and permits, they may get stuck in customs indefinitely and/or incur unforeseen costs such fines, penalties and could even risk the possibility of being seized in the destination country.
