E-commerce Sellers Importing into Foreign Markets
Once your goods have arrived in-country, you will need a locally registered party to help clear your goods. This is known as an Importer of record (IOR) or indirect representative.
zee saves you the stress of worrying about customs clearance by offering expert IOR services to help you on your way to global success.
If I have a broker, do I still need an IOR?
Yes. A broker files the import paperwork on the IOR’s behalf but doesn’t take on any of the risk. This is why many freight companies offer a brokerage service. Without an IOR, your goods will not be cleared. This is a common mistake made by sellers which often result in stuck shipments.Learn More 🠦
