Time-saving and reliable at the recipient - if necessary by express shipping internationally

Customers in international e-commerce also expect short delivery times internationally. Global industrial companies need to deliver goods, parts or preliminary products to worldwide locations on time. International documents should reach the addressee quickly and securely.

Our shipping services are highly reliable. You always have full transparency via tracking. And for particularly time-critical shipments, we also offer international express shipping for your shipments.

International shipping by air freight

When valuable international documents, parcels or freight shipments need to reach their destination quickly, safely and reliably, shipping by air freight is often the best option. The airplane is particularly suitable as a means of transport for time-critical deliveries. With comparatively high transportation fees, it is important that all export formalities are handled correctly so that the time advantage is not lost again at customs.

As always with MBE: The prices for international shipping services are also based on an offer tailored to your needs in air transport. From among our premium partners for international shipping, we work with you to choose the most suitable international freight forwarder and determine the appropriate services and benefits.

Customs regulations and export conditions in international shipping

Shipments outside the EU are subject to the customs regulations of the importing country. The export accompanying document (ABD or EAD) attached to the shipment plays a central role for the necessary export declaration at customs. First, however, it must be clarified whether the value of the goods is below 1,000 euros. In this case, an export accompanying document does not have to be prepared, but the shipment must still be described in terms of value and content. In addition to customs regulations, import and export restrictions, e.g. for dangerous goods, pharmaceuticals and drugs, must also be observed.

An IT interface to the customs administration is required for the creation of export accompanying documents. We provide you with competent advice on all these issues. Let your MBE Center handle the complex export formalities for you and concentrate on your business success.

Checklist: What do I have to consider in international shipping?

  • International shipping brings with it some challenges that are not faced in the same way in domestic business. Some of the most important questions include:
  • Is the package addressed correctly for international shipping? Address formats can differ significantly from country to country.
  • Is the shipment securely packed for its long journey?
  • What is allowed to be shipped, what are the customs regulations in the destination country?
  • Are the goods insured for international shipping?
  • How can the shipping costs be calculated for the customer so that my goods are internationally competitive?
  • Worldwide returns: How does the package get back if the worst comes to the worst?

If you lack the time to deal with all these aspects in depth, outsourcing international shipping can be a worthwhile option. MBE can support you competently in all these and many other questions!

We are looking forward to your inquiry!
