Customs clearance – key action points:
1. Tell your customers that their packages will be delivered by FedEx Express.
This is to ensure they expect packages from FedEx Express rather than TNT. In the event receivers of your packages have never received from or shipped with FedEx Express, and their shipments require customs clearance, they will be contacted by the local FedEx Express clearance team for any required authorizations (Power of Attorney), company registration numbers, or other documents needed by FedEx Express to clear their shipments. This may also include any agreements or authorizations needed for the payment of duty and tax in relation to their shipments. These steps are essential to ensure a smooth clearance process and successful delivery of packages.
2. If your customers have received a dutiable shipment from FedEx Express before, there’s no action to take.
This is because we would already have their information in our systems.
