Duties, Taxes and Fees

You are here

Issues and Challenges

Duties and taxes are levied by governments around the globe based on the product value including freight and insurance. These fees vary widely based on the ways different countries apply tariffs on different products. Monitoring and accurately interpreting tariff updates and the various taxes by country can be a manually intensive and daunting task. This task is especially tedious when countries update their tariffs continuously or tariff rates change based on specific dates throughout the year.
