Does the Importer of Record have to own the goods?

Posted on 27 July 2021

The IOR does not have to own the goods, but will take temporary ownership of the goods during the clearance process. This places all responsibility for the goods on the importer during the import process. When working with zee, we take on all the risks and responsibility for your goods during import. We also assume the risk of being audited for your shipment for up to 7 years.
