Importer of Record
An Importer of Record (IOR) is required for all merchandise and products entering Canada and the US. Amazon, including their fulfillment centres, will not act as an IOR for any shipment of FBA inventory. This includes shipments of any size or value, regardless of origin and product. You may not leave this field blank; this may result in the shipment being refused and returned to the shipper.
Ensuring that the imported goods comply with local laws and regulations.
Filing a completed duty entry and associated documents.
Paying the assessed import duties and other taxes on those goods.
The Importer of Record is also responsible for complying with all applicable export and import laws and ensuring that the goods comply with local laws and regulations.
You may not import prohibited or restricted items without all required permits and authorizations.
The import of certain agricultural products, food products, alcohol, plants and seeds, fish and wildlife products and medication into Canada may be prohibited or restricted.
When you are working with Speedy Air Cargo, we will assist you in understanding how to meet these requirements and deal with the customs paperwork.
A non-resident (foreign) IOR may make entry of goods into the United States and Canada. To become a non-resident IOR, please contact us for more details.
Duties, Taxes and Shipping Costs
Please remember that Amazon will not be accountable for or pay any duties, taxes, or shipping costs associated with FBA inventory. All shipments are required to use Delivered Duty Paid (DDP). Please refer to our shipping definitions page:
