  • Simple for the Retailer. At its U.S. warehouse, the retailer picks and packs the parcel as a domestic shipment, with minimal change from its existing processes, and using its preferred U.S. carrier. Although the option exists to tender parcels to U.S. carriers as individual parcels, the retailer can also consolidate the parcel with other international orders bound for our hubs, which reduces shipping costs.
  • Product Sorting and Classification. Once a shipment arrives at our hubs, it is sorted and an operator scans individual parcels. The operator inspects the merchandise for country of origin if it has not been provided from the merchant electronically, prints an international packing slip and commercial invoice, overlabels the parcel with a shipping label specific to the international destination, then aggregates freight by carrier and shipping method. Customs brokers perform item classification and assign the merchandise any and all harmonized systems codes required for efficient customs clearance.
  • Error Reduction. Exceptions are also managed at our hubs, with operators separating out any parcels that are damaged, appear to contain an incorrect quantity or appear to contain the incorrect items. In the event that a parcel contains restricted items or an incorrect quantity of items, we coordinate with the retailer to either arrange for the timely return of the damaged or incorrect merchandise, or to resolve the exception while the merchandise is still at the hub so that it can continue to its destination.
  • Full Track and Trace. As the parcel leaves our hubs, we send the consumer an international shipment confirmation e-mail, which includes a link to a page where the consumer can track his or her parcel’s progress and receive periodic delivery updates.
  • Electronic Customs Declaration and Clearance. While the parcel is in transit, a customs declaration is electronically sent to customs officers in the receiving country, and duty and VAT are paid or remitted in the consumer’s name. Pre-clearance of shipments while in transit allows many shipments to be inducted directly into the local delivery network.
  • Parcel Protection and Replacement Guarantee. Local, trusted delivery services are used in each international market to ensure a positive experience by the consumer. All parcels shipped by us have a parcel protection and replacement guarantee in case of any logistics issues that result in a lost or damaged parcel.
  • Returns Management. Borderfree processes consumer returns in accordance with their retailers’ return policies and automatically refund to the consumer original landed costs upon receipt at one of their third-party hubs or upon final receipt at their retailers’ return centers. All returns that are consolidated at their third-party hubs are then returned to their retailers’ designated returns centers.
