Customs Clearance & Shipping
Services on Amazon

What are the Amazon
Customs Clearance and Shipping
Services for shipping crossborder?
We have two small-parcel shipping solutions to enable you to inbound directly into an EU Fulfilment Centre when shipping from UK, or inbound into a UK Fulfilment Centre when shipping from EU.

The solutions provide the services of third-party service provider AVASK Accounting & Business Consultants, in addition to cross-border freight forwarding. AVASK operate as a fully integrated customs partner to help alleviate the post-Brexit complexities.
There are two solutions:
Ship from your warehouse to a domestic Amazon Sort Centre, and Amazon Transportation Services (ATS) will ship the goods across the customs border on your behalf for free.

Ship with UPS from your domestic storage facility, cross-border UK<>EU into an FBA Fulfilment Centre and receive discounted partnered carrier rates for the entire shipment.

These are both small parcel shipping solutions so you will need to meet the FBA requirements for shipping small parcels.
Why ship cross-border?
Amazon Customs Clearance and Shipping Services simplify the process shipping inventory across the UK<>EU customs border and offers you the opportunity to increase your reach to millions of new customers.
