Why DDP beats DDU?

DDU is the traditional postal model: Delivered Duty Unpaid. When sending a package from the United States under DDU terms, the USPS will be the default provider. The USPS will arrange your package all the way up to the border of your destination country, where the destination postal office will take over and arrange for the consumer to pay their VAT, Duty and (often hefty) Customs Clearance Handling Fees.

In the DDP model — Delivered Duty Paid — the shipper will pay for destination import VAT and any Duty. The DDP model avoids any unforeseen charges to shipper or consumer.

With PARCLL’s DDP service, your package will be moved from the United States on a commercial flight. PARCLL will arrange for fully electronic DDP clearance for e-commerce at destination. VAT and possibly duty will be assessed upfront and are guaranteed. Plus, PARCLL does not charge any customs clearance fees to shipper or consumer.

More delivery options. More growth opportunity.
