Answered

Hi,

May i seek for an advise what does this mean - as i saw this in the shipment tracking (which not progressing):

 

COMMENT

TAX AND CLEARANCE FEE $xxx SGD MUST BE PAID BEFORE DELIVERY

 

This is a delivery from UK to Singapore and does it mean that the recipient must pay in order to deliver out from UK?

Besides, what is the correct channel or procedures to make this tax and clearance fee payment?

 

Thank you very much and hope to hear from you soon~

Hello Neoh!

 

Thanks for posting to our community. I am not seeing that you have an account with ShippingEasy, so I am unable to find any information on a particular shipment.  However, I have some information I can share that may help:

When you ship something to another country, you or your customer may be asked to pay additional duties and taxes before the shipment is delivered.

Governments tax shipments from other countries because they want to:

1. Protect domestic companies from foreign competitors

2. Control the flow of certain products

3. Raise revenue through taxes

Duties and taxes on shipments are legal requirements that must be settled before your shipment can be delivered.

The customs clearance covers the process of preparing and submitting Customs Entry documentation to the CBP. This is also known as Customs Brokerage.

You may want to reach out to the carrier the order was shipped with or perhaps the customs office where the fee is being requested.

Hi Rewa,

Thank you very much for the prompt reply and it is very helpful for me to understand the procedures now. Appreciated it.

Shall contact the carrier again on which customs office that requested the fee.

It was not stated as well in the "COMMENT" when we check the shipment status.

 

Thanks once again~

Hi,

Sorry that i had another question:

How do I check or know whether the involved courier is real or fake.

This is the involved courier info:

Had tried to emailed them earlier but seems no respond.

I looked at the site information - it seems like to be fishy.

 

 

Thanks a lot in advance~

Good day,

I am afraid we do not have an integration or working relationship with Logix Express, but they do have a presence on Google.

Sorry that we are not able to offer any further information as we do not integrate with carriers external to the Domestic United States.
