DDP is the best solution for individual and small business owners, before that we offer CIF a lot but later we found many of our new clients who has no idea about international business, I mean totally no idea how to handle the shipping. Our printing price does a great, much lower but some of them were afraid and canceled the project until we found a reliable shipping partner to solve the problem and support our clients. DDP is the way, a not very much new way but good way.
What is DDP?
DDP, or Delivered Duty Paid, is an international trade term that refers to a shipment where the seller assumes total responsibility and costs for delivering the goods to the named destination.
According to DDP Incoterms, what is each party responsible for?
DDP is the Incoterm that places the most risk and responsibility on the seller. Under DDP the seller is responsible for clearing customs, paying duties and taxes, arranging all transportation to the destination, import clearance, fees, and duties, and any associated fees with the above.
The seller assumes all risk and responsibility until the goods are unloaded from the vehicle at the final place of destination, often at the buyer’s place of business.
When is DDP used?
DDP can be used in any and across multiple modes of transport.
Clearing customs and arranging for imports can be difficult in countries with complex or bureaucratic import procedures and since DDP requires that the seller clear imports in the destination country, it works best when the seller has local knowledge of the country of destination or if the import clearance is simple (such as in countries with an FTA).
In one word, DDP is kind of DHL, you pay one time and just sit and wait, that's simple.
