These policies are issued to avoid extensive losses and to minimize unnecessary risk in providing DDP services. Please see the following conditions before we can start our DDP


1. AGREEMENT (please see attached draft for review by Legal Dept)

Shipper is defined as the actual party who shall be responsible for the financial responsibility of the DDP services.Shipper must signed the Global Courier Express 'DDP Service Agreement' with the coordination of Global Courier Express's oversea office or agent shall insure that they fully understand the scope of the agreement.
Shipper must submit a copy of their current financial records such as but not limited to Financial Statements, Bank Statements, etc. as supporting documents for financial stability.
If there is a 3rd party involved (i.e co-loader), the DDP Agreement must still be signed by the actual and true shipper; in addition, the co-loader agent must issue an 'Indemnity Letter' as an endorsement and as additional documentation.
The ultimate shipper shall also be requested to sign the Intermodal Policy Agreement to protect us from future charges incurred not added to the original invoice.


The shipper must be questioned if this is the first (1st) time that they are shipping with a DDP arrangement
• if the answer is YES, they need to provide to us the Foreign Customs ID
• if the answer is NO , they must be inform that we can assist them to apply for their own Foreign Customs ID


The shipper must provide their customers Tax I.D. or IRS Number.


The initial information must be forwarded to Global Courier Express offices to solicit proper quote response based on the information.

True packing list and invoice is required to be given to us within a minimum 3 days after the departure from origin port.
This will allow Global Courier Express and its customs house brokerage services to be pre-dispose on making necessary changes for any corrections or amendments.


First rule, DDP charges are always subject to change.
a. HTS Codes - US Customs has a time bar of 1 year to correct and collect any difference from original tariff code filing.
b. Door Services - Trucking companies have a grace period of 45 days to advice of any additional charges.

If the duties are to exceed USD $5000 per a single, it must be collected from the shipper and a wire transfer arrangement must be applied.
Any other payment arrangement shall be reviewed and properly approved prior to any booking(s).
The shipper is given another option to settle balances. They can use a Stand Letter of  Credit from the bank as a guarantee of payment. Upon delivery, DS can withdrawn funds from this LC. (This is still under research)
