Brazil is a country famous for a whole number of reasons. From its booming tourist industry, to it's international success in football. It also happens to have one of the best economies in the world.
Not only that, but it is also one of the largest countries in the world. In recent years numerous companies have opened up new offices and branches in the country, which has caused an influx in the amount of people sending a parcel to Brazil.
With prices starting at under fifty pounds, and a whole host of benefits, WPS is the best choice for sending parcels to Brazil.
Brazil is one of the 21st century’s roaring success stories as it increases its production rates and its trade with other parts of the world. Its mineral mining projects are immense and they are the cause of a rapid expansion which shows no signs of abating. The country has massive mineral resources and has 25% of the world’s fresh water supplies flowing through the Amazon and other water ways that have so much potential to change the complete landscape of the country in food production and tree cultivation.
The result is that Brazil is becoming an area of massive change and there are even signs of this reaching the Favelas in the poorer parts of the major cities. The Olympic Games are going to Brazil in 2016 and this will be another major source of trade. This rapid increase attracts the potential of a great deal of overseas trade and the UK is one area where import and export trade will become important over the next few years, and affect the parcel business accordingly.
There is a problem in the parcel delivery service in that despite a certain relaxation in the customs duties in Brazil it is still a very difficult country to import into as the rules are extremely restrictive. The import of almost any product requires obtaining an import licence which is issued by the SECEX or the Secretariat of Foreign Trade which is solely responsible for the preliminary licence.
There is also the difficulty that the list of items on the preliminary list is not publicised and is only available to registered agents and authorised users. The application when made must include a pro forma invoice and if the price is below that of the price used for customs calculation, the licence is refused and no reason given, except that there is usually an unofficial contact about the minimum price. Licences are usually only valid for 60 days which can be difficult to conform to after which the licence lapses. Documentary evidence is another minefield and faults in this area can be charged at a 100% levy. So the advice is to get an excellent import agent when sending parcels to Brazil.
