Fuel - Invoice Component

The current volatility of world crude oil prices has resulted in increased costs for the air freight industry and courier services worldwide. This has necessitated the need to introduce an indexed fuel component as part of our invoice. The component will rise, fall or be removed in line with movements in fuel prices and will be applied to all Jet Worldwide's international and domestic services.

The index is linked to the monthly average of the daily mid-spot price for a gallon of kerosene type jet fuel (Rotterdam ARA). Monthly fuel prices are published by the US Department of Energy and can be found online.

Jet Worldwide reserves the right to change the fuel invoice component for any of our courier services with or without notice and to manage the amount and duration.

Broker Notification

At the customer’s request, the clearance paperwork is transferred to an independent broker to handle customs clearance. We resume the delivery to the final destination once the clearance is completed but we are subsequently not responsible for the timeliness of the submission to customs or for the release of the shipment.

Bonded Storage

Storage charges apply when the shipment cannot be released by Customs due to inaccurate or missing paperwork. Charges take effect three calendar days after the freight arrival date or broker notification, whichever is later.

Formal Clearance

Non-restricted merchandise based on value and/or commodity is usually cleared on a consolidated manifest for more cost and time efficient processing. A charge will be applied if the Importer requests a formal entry when the shipment actually qualifies for an informal or de minimis entry on the consolidated manifest.

Personal Effects

At the request of the Shipper, we can handle shipments containing personal belongings. Charges apply when Customs require that these goods are manually cleared with unique paperwork requirements, most typically when the shipment must be cleared as personal luggage.

Post Clearance Modification

We can modify the value, commodity, country of manufacture, or terms of trade information after the import clearance process for goods, to correct or elaborate on what was submitted previously to Customs. Modifications are also necessary when import details such as the VAT number are incorrect on the declaration.

Export Declaration

Charges are occasionally valid for a shipment when it is over a certain value or weight, a certain commodity or when it is sent to a certain destination. Depending on origin country, Shippers that submit a declaration online may avoid the local charge.

Advanced Payment

An administrative charge is applied to any import of a non-document shipment for which we advance to Customs any duties, taxes or regulatory charges and then collects the same amount from the non-account holder at the time of delivery. We assume the risk of non-repayment by the Receiver, for which the charge is applied based on the credit advanced, subject to a standard minimum.

Disbursement

An administrative charge is applied to any import of a non-document shipment for which we advance to Customs any duties, taxes or regulatory charges and then invoices the account holder for the same amount. The charge is based on the credit advanced, subject to a standard minimum, and appears as a separate line item on the duty invoice.

NOTE:

Additional charges for Customs Services may apply in certain countries.
