Freight/Shipping charges

So not that $18.00 is something to cry over...Glorious FedEx sent me a bill for $18.00 for charges as the result of my recent Mudd UK order.

My question is doesn't that responsibility rest with the shipper? I did pay a calculated shipping charge.

They are probably calculated import taxes ... Sometimes overseas orders don't get picked up for this and sometimes they do.

I get one from FedEx for every single package that is shipped from the UK. I have never received a bill from UPS, DHL or parcel force.

Last one from FedEx was for a shipment that was 206 GBP

charges
$8.63 Customs Duty
$6.50 Advancement Fee

The man is due his duty for anything of value that crosses our borders. New parts all have different categories/codes and figuring out the correct duty amount is a pain in the butt.

Everything I've had shipped from overseas was shipped via FedEx or regular old post office. I've never been charged duty. Though, isn't their like an $800 threshold or something before it's due?

Not on shipped items. I forget what they allow you to bring back in your bags when you travel but that may be what you are thinking of.

This order was over 1K so that seems to make sense. FedEx called me the day prior to the delivery and said they needed a better description of what was in the shipment. I told her that was the shippers responsibility, and then I decided that I wanted the shipment and wanted it undamaged...lol

I had her email me then replied pulling the description information off of the MUDD site...it's like pullin teeth. I'll just keep my orders smaller going forward.

I've gotten bills from UPS to. Fedex is the only one that persistently holds stuff at Customs. UPS breezes through.
DHL was used for bulkheads. Their bill included the duties.

I received a duty bill from DHL Express USA, Inc. for $14.51 a few weeks after my lone UK order. Huge but light box made it to my door in 3-days. No complaints here.
