Sending hi-tech equipment to Russia as DDP shipments is not easy but possible. We will explain the whole DDP freight process step by step, from
We assume responsibility for shipping and importing of your technology to Russia and the CIS countries, while you focus on what matters — the product and sales!
Is your business looking to expand fast on Russian Market?
DDP or Delivered Duty Paid shipping is a unique door-to-door service that attracts more clients and keeps them closer to you.
By lifting all the responsibilities for shipping freight, customs clearance, transportation insurance, and duties payment from your customers’ shoulders, you obtain a competitive edge among other companies.
It is not surprising — the less time and effort the buyer spends to purchase your product, the more chances he chooses you and comes back again.
Velox provides DDP freight services for transportation and import of high technologies to Russia & the CIS countries.
Velox is a perfect choice for transportation, export, and import of IT equipment and telecom technologies worldwide. We offer our customers full logistics coverage, be it import permits, DDP shipping, customs clearance, EOR/IOR services or reverse logistics and RMA support.
DDP shipping makes customs clearance processes easier for buyers — it motivates them to prioritize your products and buy more from you in the future. DDP freight is preferable, as it:
DDP shipping to Russia is available when a sender has a legal entity or representative office in the country. Otherwise, a shipper and a receiver have to turn to a local distributor who can import goods to Russia and send them to a final customer domestically.
The scheme “manufacturer → cargo carrier → local distributor → final customer” is widespread but not perfect: a distributor claims additional expenses for you and your clients.
Velox optimizes the supply chain by turning it into the “manufacturer → Velox → final customer” model, which saves costs and simplifies the whole logistics process.
We create a full-fledged solution, so you do not have to hire third-party agents to trade in Russia. Thanks to Velox, you can sell directly to your Russian customers even as a foreign business.
Without a registered entity in Russia, a shipper cannot import goods to the region. It causes concerns about using the DDP incoterm when shipping into the region.
The negative scenarios are avoidable with a joint DDP-IOR solution for shipping by Velox.
The IOR (Importer Of Record) status allows Velox to act as your consignee and representative in Russia for the import clearance process. At the same time, we still handle the logistics and freight operations to deliver shipments to your customers.
The consolidated DDP–IOR shipment mode addresses several problems in one solution and helps to avoid overpaying for brokerage fees and other operational costs.
Velox is an operational logistics company that enables global businesses to trade freely in Russia. Foreign organizations can carry their sales and post-sales operations with the help of our proven, turn-key infrastructure.
We have built supply chain and finance systems to support foreign businesses’ needs for penetrating the Russian market. Global technology-leading companies have proved our working model. You start trading in Russia right after Velox issues import permits.
Though we help you enter the Russian market, you still maintain full control over your end-users, resellers, and direct sales department. Therefore, Velox does not get involved in your pricing model or competition on the market.
“Russian market was always attractive for us, as there is a huge demand for our technology. And while the sales went well, billing and customs clearance has always been a struggle for our operations team while we tried using our current international shipping providers.
With Velox in the picture, we don’t need to handle the operations in Russia at all, and we concentrate our efforts on promoting the sales in the region, while Velox handles for us all the administrative, financial, legal, and logistics operations to ensure the product delivery to our customers while keeping the cost of operations predictable and attractive compared to the competition.”
Sometimes logistics operations require more than a DDP / IOR shipping solution.
Here is what you get with Velox to tailor your shipping process:

AND HERE IS WHY
Selling IT, Telecom, Networking, or Encryption-enabled equipment is risky: the components are costly and fragile. Items can arrive with manufacturing defects or failures due to the equipment displacement or replacement process. In this case, providing timely reverse logistics services is crucial for a vendor. It helps a seller to prevent a negative response and save a client.
While implementing the DDP or DDP–IOR solution with us, you will get access to additional services for reverse logistics support:
