What is Delivery Duty Paid (DDP) and Delivery Duty Unpaid (DDU)?

Delivered Duty Unpaid (DDU)

Delivery Duty Unpaid (DDU) refers to goods that are shipped internationally without any prior payment of import duties and tax. This means that any charges in the form of taxes and duties will be paid by the receiver once the goods arrive at the destination customs. 

Receivers will be informed by the courier or customs agent to pay for the import taxes and duties when the shipment arrives at destination customs. Additional charges, such as storage charges, handling charges, etc., may be imposed by customs as well. Once payment is made, only the shipment will be released by customs and delivered to the receiver.


Now that you understand what DDU and DDP mean, which international shipment method is the best for you?

In our opinion, DDP is a more advantageous method as it speeds and smooths out the shipment process than the DDU method. This will have a good impact on your receiver’s experience, as they will receive the shipments earlier and without a hitch.

Whereas, the DDU method will cause late receival and could impact the whole good experience for the receivers. Receivers are expected to make a payment just to retrieve their parcels, especially if they’re not informed early on.

You may learn on how to book DDP shipments on EasyParcel to be better prepared before booking.
