Importing and Exporting Goods: The Importance of IOR/EOR Services

Importing and Exporting Goods: The Importance of IOR/EOR Services

Ensuring that imported and exported goods comply with customs and regulations is crucial in global trade. One of the important requirements is having an Importer of Record (IOR) or Exporter of Record (EOR) who knows the responsibility for compliance and regulations. This article will explore the importance of IOR/EOR services, particularly in the logistics industry.

Importing and exporting goods involve various legal and regulatory requirements that must be met by the parties involved. One such requirement is the Importer of Record (IOR) or Exporter of Record (EOR), which is the party responsible for ensuring the imported or exported goods comply with the customs and legal requirements of the country to which the goods are being sent to/from.

Essentially an IOR is a legal entity which goes on record and claims responsibility for the goods being imported into the country, stating that they meet all the requirements and regulations. On the other hand, an EOR is responsible for ensuring exported goods comply with the regulations of the country they are being sent from.

In the logistics industry, having an IOR/EOR in a given country is crucial to facilitating trade. When a company has an established partner or service provider who can offer IOR/EOR services in a country, it unlocks the possibility for the company to trade within its borders. However, before the trade can commence, it’s essential to ensure that necessary due diligence, compliance measures, and regulations are met and in place with the IOR/EOR to avoid legal or regulatory issues and ensure efficient, accurate, and simplified shipment processing.

We bring clarity to Complexity

We design visible, feasible and achievable solutions and manage them for you. Unilog defines the SOW, identifying unique customer needs in the replenishment process. Inbounding 100,000 serials or a testing a server requires a different approach. Dealing with a defective unit inbound or field return is not the same as a PO inbound or a WH transfer inbound. Outbound of a service order is different than an FMCG with expiration date outbound. Shipping & tracking of small parcel or full tracks can lead to different flows and process.

Our SOW process focuses on the business challenge and its unique needs. Once we’ve gained an in-depth understanding of the challenges & needs, we design a unique solution to best support them.
