Have you ever heard of these terms and wondered what they meant?

  1. Custom Duty - It’s a fee imposed by the government of the receiving country based on the value of the item being shipped.
  2. Volumetric Weight - This is used when you’re sending an item in a box. It is calculated by multiplying the length by the breadth by the width divided by 5000.
  3. Commercial invoice - It is a document that lists out the item you’re sending out, the quantity, and the value.
  4. Phytosanitary certificate - This is a document you use when you’re sending out food items.
