International shipping can be a jungle.

Take advantage of Fraktjakt's all years of experience, of unexpectedly adventurous shipping and exciting customs missions, for a successful import and export.

Easier international shipping

We not only guide your shipping creation by looking up addresses, place names, shipping services and nearest agents, but also convey information and experience from our ever-growing knowledge bank about shipping to all countries in the world. Each region and country has its own notices with information about the risk of possible customs duties as well as goods and packaging materials that previous customers had problems with.

We also guide you with basic information about terms such as Eori, VOEC, Supply VAT, TIN, REX, Taric and when they are needed for your customs documents, as well as which regions they are applicable to, if so for the EU, EEA, GSP, OCT and other free trade agreements.

More than just labels and waybills

Unlike simpler TMS that only create shipping labels and waybills, Fraktjakt also helps with shipping manifests, packing slips and even fills in your customs documents for Proforma Invoices and Commercial Invoices automatically.

Fraktjakt automatically creates basic customs documents for your freight, but it is also worth noting that these are only a helpful basis in your customs handling. It is still always you in the role as the sender who is responsible for ensuring that you have received current and specific information that applies to your shipment from your national Customs agency and the shipping companies themselves. If you have no need for Fraktjakt's documents if you, for example, create your own documents, you can deactivate them so that they are not included in your collection printout and automatic printouts.

Automatic information from matched addresses

If an address is sent through your order links that match one of your addresses to your address register, they will be automatically supplemented with other shipping information. Such as mobile numbers and telephone numbers for notification, as well as directions, port code, pick-up instructions, desired times / days and delivery instructions from the information of your saved addresses.

International freight is also supplemented with necessary information such as organization number / tax number, Eori number, VOEC, UK supply VAT and Rex number.

Prohibited content

You may not send dangerous goods with a freight service purchased through Fraktjakt. For some services, a so-called limited amount of dangerous goods may be sent if you have first been granted an exemption and taken the necessary measures. The consignor is responsible for ensuring that all additional documentation is available and that permission is granted by the shipping company.

Dangerous goods are substances that may pose a risk to health, safety, property or the environment when it is transported or used, or which the carrier categorizes as dangerous goods. More information on dangerous goods can be provided by the MSB - The Swedish Agency for Social Protection and Emergency Preparedness.

More exceptions can be found under each service and shipper, so read more detailed info under the terms for the corresponding service and shipper.

Proper customs clearance with commodity codes

Commodity codes (also called tariff codes, taric codes and hs codes) are usually not required, but speeds up and improves the customs process which enables a faster delivery and may avoid unnecessary charges or that your shipments get completely stuck or refused in customs.

With our Intelligent commodity templates you can supplement your shipments with correct item codes automatically, by either retrieving information from previous shipments and thus learning and automatically creating new templates from previous shipments or manually adding the information you want to complete future shipments with.

FAQ about customs declaration

What is a Commercial Invoice?

A commercial invoice is used to describe goods that are exported for sale and is an important part of the clearance process where customs authorities classify goods so that customs duties and taxes can be assessed correctly.

All shipments to countries outside the European Union (EU) require customs clearance. No customs clearance is required for goods shipped within the EU, with the exception of Cyprus, Greece and Malta, as well as areas outside the EU excise tax areas such as Åland and the Canary Islands.

Correct and complete information on a commercial invoice is very important for fast customs clearance. Most shipping companies require a commercial invoice with three copies, all individually signed. They also recommend that you add an extra copy to the package.

Fraktjakt automatically creates a basic commercial invoice for your shipping with the most common information pre-filled. However, it is still your responsibility to check that the information is correct and if any information is missing. If you wish to create your own customs documents, you can deactivate Fraktjakt's documents under your print settings. Be aware that some countries sometimes do not approve handwritten commercial invoices. If the document is not correct, shipping may be stopped by the receiving customs. Fraktjakt will then invoice for the additional costs that may arise.

The signature does not have to be original and in Fraktjakt you can upload your signature so that it is filled in automatically.

What is a Proforma Invoice?

A proforma invoice is used instead of a commercial invoice if the importer has not bought the product. That is, if the product is not for sale, for example for gifts, samples, returns and repairs. The proforma invoice is an important part of the clearance process where customs authorities classify goods so that customs duties and taxes can be assessed correctly.

All shipments to countries outside the European Union (EU) require customs clearance. No customs clearance is required for goods shipped within the EU, with the exception of Cyprus, Greece and Malta, as well as areas outside the EU excise tax areas such as Åland and the Canary Islands.

What is Tariff, TARIC, HS and commodity codes?

Commodity codes (also called tariff codes, taric codes and hs codes) are usually not required, but speeds up and improves the customs process which enables a faster delivery and may avoid unnecessary charges or that your shipments get completely stuck or refused in customs.

The commodity codes are based on The Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System, an international system that more than 200 countries use as a basis for customs purposes and trade statistics.

The first four digits are called HS numbers, the first six are called HS subheadings. In addition to HS numbers and sub-numbers, we in the EU have increased the figures to eight. These eight-digit commodity codes are called the "combined nomenclature" and are the EU tariff to be used for classification.

The EU has built on the combined nomenclature with a tariff called Taric. Taric consists of ten-digit commodity codes. This makes it possible to link provisions on, for example, anti-dumping, licensing and suspension of duties with the combined nomenclature.

As an importer or exporter, you are responsible for ensuring that your goods are correctly classified. This also applies if you hire a representative who makes the declaration. If you have declared an incorrect product code, it may mean that you have had to pay too little or too much in customs or that an import permit may be required for the product.
