1. The Purchase
2. Documents
3. Payment
4. The Delivery

Step 1: Understanding the terms of purchase


Before completing your overseas purchase, discuss and finalise the intended shipping terms with your supplier.

The terms are referred to as: International Commercial Terms (or INCO Term for short).

This term defines the charges/responsibilities shared between you and your supplier. There will be a three letter INCO term shown on the invoice from your supplier.

→ Please refer to:

If termed EXW/FOB – we manage the entire movement from collection through to door delivery.

Get it touch with Genesis Freight Services Ltd for advice and guidance on the best term/solution to use for your shipment.

Step 2: Obtaining the shipping documents


Once shipment is booked, your supplier should courier to you the below documents. Ensure they are posted to Genesis Freight Services Ltd at your earliest convenience:

  • Bill of Lading also known as a Multimodal Transport Document (MTD) – Must send Original
  • Commercial Invoice/Packing listYou can send copy
  • Form A (the certificate of origin) – You should send original
  • Please don’t send any vehicle registration forms/log books – These are for your records

Incase any delay, contact your supplier immediately to request them. As the UK importer, you must ensure you have all the necessary documents ready for cargo import arrival. Contact us for help.

Before posting, you can scan a copy to Genesis Freight Services Ltd to ensure you have the right documents

Step 3: What will I be pay and when?


As mentioned earlier, familiarise yourself with the INCO term under which you purchase your cargo.

If you have already shipped your cargo – it is likely your shipment has been transported on CFR basis This term dictates that the buyer is liable for UK-side Handling charges, whilst your supplier has paid for the Indian-side Handling charges and the freight.

In essence, you will ultimately pay two invoices, one for UK Charges and a second for UK Taxes. Get in touch with Genesis Freight Services Ltd to ensure the Customs Formalities have been filed correctly and you are not over-paying any taxes.

It is strongly recommended that you request GFS for a quote to attend to the customs clearance/delivery formalities on your behalf.

Step 4: When will I get my delivery?


If the shipment has been shipped through GFS and one of our overseas partners, we will monitor the whole door to door movement. From the moment it departs to door delivery.

If not initially shipped through GFS, the good news is we can still look after the shipment for you from arrival UK port to door delivery and provide you the guidance you need.

Shipping transit time is normally 3-4 weeks subject to Origin Country. Once arrived in the UK, we will arrange customs clearance – one of our GFS experts will be in touch and ensure we deliver on a day workable for you.

You can also choose Add-on services, which means you can choose a “timed delivery” service or even add “Tail lift” to assist offload.
