Importer of Record and Pre-Shipment Documentation

Importer of Record

While in certain countries, FGX enables our clients to act as the Importer of Record themselves, they are rarely able to act as their own Importer of Record in Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan is not a location where companies typically have a business entity authorized to import, which means that they will need to utilize FGX as their IOR provider.

Hardware Valuations 

When importing your hardware anywhere you want to ensure that you have proper valuations of your assets so that you can pay the proper tax and ensure speedy customs clearance. However, when importing into Azerbaijan special care must be taken, as customs will revalue your equipment and increase your dutiable amounts if they feel as though your equipment has been improperly valued. Equipment should be valued based on the retail amount, or the value of the items that is visible via online pricing searches. The amount that your company procured the equipment for, may not be accepted, although with supporting documents, an argument can be made for a lower valuation. An FGX logistics specialist can ensure that your equipment is being properly valued before proceeding with shipments to Azerbaijan.

IT Shipping & Logistics 

The deployment process to Azerbaijan typically requires about two to three weeks from our warehouse to delivery at your end location. Initial paperwork processing and implementation will take at least one working week and should be factored into your overall timeline. After that, you will need up to two weeks for air freight, customs clearance, and last-mile delivery.

FGX manages all of our client’s shipments door-to-door (or door-to-datacenter). This case study showcases how we navigated IT logistics and importation into Azerbaijan at the time that it was written. Regulations and challenges are constantly changing and exact shipping requirements may have changed. To learn more about FGX and how our global shipping platform can help your company, reach out here.
