What Challenges Are Involved in International Shipping?
International shipping can be a more complex process than the standard shipping process, but ShipHawk helps address many of these challenges.
Here are some of the features that ShipHawk has to offer to improve your international shipping process:
- Duties & Taxes - ShipHawk allows you to select whether duties and taxes are to be billed directly to the customer or to you. You can enter this information per order or automate this process via ShipHawk’s Dynamic Rules Engine™. Choosing to automate this process eliminates the need to manually update every order while still providing the flexibility to update on an individual order level.
- Customs Data - Similar to duties and taxes, ShipHawk allows customers to enter customs data (e.g., value of goods, commodity codes, etc.) for each order, while also storing this data so it automatically populates based on the item(s) within the shipment.
- International Documentation - ShipHawk automatically prints international documentation upon each created shipment. Documentation includes: commercial invoices, USMCA and CN22/CN23 customs declarations. What’s more, ShipHawk provides configurable commercial invoices that allow you to customize fields within the form to your specific business needs.
- Electronic Shipping Data Transfer - ShipHawk sends commercial invoices and customs data directly to major carriers eliminating yet another manual step in your fulfillment process.
