DDP service

To determine the terms of delivery of goods in international trade, it is customary to use uniform international rules, consolidated in the Incoterms® set of rules. The last edition of Incoterms® was published in 2020 (Incoterms 2020®).

DDP (delivered duty paid) basis is traditionally considered to be the most attractive delivery basis for the Buyer where the goods are delivered to the Buyer (importer) until they get to the named place of destination in the Buyer’s country, completely cleared through import customs with duties, fees and taxes paid.

Since the declarant (the person responsible for customs clearance and payment of customs duties under the import procedure) in the Eurasian Economic Union should be a resident of one of the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union, in fact without the participation of an importer – a resident of the Russian Federation – DDP basis is hardly applied in the Russian Federation.

Quite often, foreign suppliers face Russian buyers who are not ready to act as importers, since foreign trade activities in our country imposes a number of risks and burdens on companies-importers.

For our foreign partners, Importo Group offers services for the delivery of goods to the Buyer’s warehouse in the Russian Federation, actually under DDP terms. Using this model of collaboration Importo acts as a technical importer in the Russian Federation (the contract holder under the foreign trade contract).
