DHL Trade Automation Services provides comprehensive trade and customs data for doing business with companies in 74 countries. It takes the guess work out of estimating duties, taxes and other import fees by calculating the total “landed costs” between countries up front. Users can ensure their commodities comply with a country’s import and export regulations and can download the appropriate trade document(s) required to accompany their shipment. The TAS system also checks shipper and receiver details against government lists, embargos and sanctions so customers can ensure global compliance.
Also, through Import Express Online, customers can prepare import shipments through a fully automated process, including e-mail instructions for the shipper, waybills, invoices, and arrangements of pickups.
