A great way to save on paper and reduce the risk of your international shipment getting held up at customs is to use the Paperless Invoicing feature provided by UPS. Paperless Invoicing is offered free to UPS customers and allows for an electronic transmission of customs documents. UPS claims that this reduces the likelihood of customs hold by 41 percent!
Some key features of the Paperless Invoice include:
- Reduction of risk that the paperwork will be lost
- Allows importers to keep customs values confidential
- Reduces the reliance on paper, making the shipment more environmentally friendly
