France Customs Declaration
Shipments being sent from non-EU countries are subject to a thorough customs clearance process. France is a member of the European Union and ensures all goods entering the union is compliant with European standards. Failure to comply will result in a shipping delay or confiscation altogether.
Your shipping advisor will advise you on documentation requirements and provide you with a list of prohibited items and charges to expect when shipping to France. Your advisor will also assist you in preparing these documents and getting them ready before sending out your shipment.
Transit Times To France
The time taken to ship to France is subject to various conditions – the type of service chosen for shipping, nature of the foods, carrier, and other unforeseen circumstances. For instance, choosing to ship under an International Economy service is slower than a priority service. Likewise, issues in the supply chain could result in a delay and so on. We highly recommend Express shipping for those who need their shipments sent immediately, such as crucial documents for submission or perishable food.
Once you decide which service is suitable for you, our shipping advisors can provide you with accurate information on the transit times to France. Please note that in the event of unforeseen circumstances, you must expect a delay in delivery.
Cargo Options For Shipping To France
We recommend shipping via the ocean to businesses and customers looking for cost-effective means of shipping their goods. If time is not the biggest constraint, ocean shipping is the way to go. The rates for ocean shipping are lower than any method of transportation. That said, the delivery times are also slower than other modes of transportation. Ocean shipping tends to take longer and is subject to as many customs requirements as any other shipping method.
The cargo options commonly sought for shipping to France from the US –
LCL or Less Than Container Load
Oftentimes, people opt to send their shipments via containers since that offers the lowest shipping prices. If you have goods that occupy lesser than a full container, LCL or Less than Container load is the ideal option. This option lets you consolidate your shipments and share container space with other shippers. You get the low rates of ocean shipping without filling up a container’s worth of freight.
FCL or Full Container Load
We highly recommend FCL or Full Container Load for high-value, time-sensitive, and large-volume shipments. Whether moving freight for work or personal reasons, you get a whole container to load your things exclusively and do not share container space with anyone else, keeping your freight shipments safe in transit. What’s better is since you ship more, you save more with FCL shipping.
Common Documents Needed While Shipping To France
A verbal declaration and proof of purchase are sufficient for goods valued at under 1,000 kg or EUR 1,000. Items of a higher value must be declared at the Customs Office with a brief declaration (air or maritime manifest) for the collection of goods.
These goods must also be accompanied by certain documents required by the French customs authorities.
SAD or Single Administrative Document
Any shipment entering France must comply with the procedures per the Single Administrative Document. The SAD describes the goods and their movement worldwide from the time of entry until customs formalities are completed.
This document is nothing but a legal invoice that contains information on the transaction between the buyer and the seller. The following information needs to be provided in the invoice.
- Certificate of origin
- Country of purchase
- Date of issue
- A detailed description of the items
- Other information related to the items.
You may be required to submit further information on a separate dangerous goods form if your package contains dangerous items containing batteries, lithium, and any deadly weapons.
EORI stands for Economic Operators Registration and Identification Number. Any business or person wishing to ship items to France must hold this EORI number to be able to import or export goods to and from France. This number is used for statistical purposes.
