Details make huge difference, always
WEIGHT BEFORE SHIPMENT
You, importing the goods to Brazil, don't forget to weight
the cargo before shipment and mention it on the B/L
or AWB separately from TARA weight
It will avoid any penalty from Brazilian Customs
FREE TIME & DEMURRAGE
Seven days Free Time for containers in Brazilian
importation is a regular procedure.
If your is starting to import into Brazil, this seven
days is not enough - trust it.
Until your company became a well-known of Brazilian
Customs, try to get at least 30 days of
Free Time from the container liner.
DDP IS NOT ALLOWED IN BRAZIL
Be warned that DDP term in Brazil importation
is forbidden (click here for the law).
But, don't despair.
Brazilian Customs allows Third Party method
importation under official contract before shipment
with pre-registration in the Customs.
Many quotations in Brazil is tricky.
They don't bring the "accessories expenses".
The accessories expenses should be Toll Fee,
Extra Costs, Demurrage, Unexpected Labors,
even Force Majeure. Detail matters.
