What are the brokerage fees for shipments
going to the US? Government regulations allow shipments valued
at $200 USD or less to cross the Canada – US border without
incurring brokerage fees. However, for orders over $200 USD,
shipping companies seem to charge a brokerage fee on their least
expensive shipping method. (On more expensive services such as
overnight deliveries, brokerage fees are included in the price,
although the price is greater than the cheapest method plus the
brokerage fee, combined). UPS has competitive rates (FedEx's
very similar) and their
UPS: U.S. Customs Brokerage Service Fees
are as follows (Jan/2012):
$0 to $200 USD worth of
items crossing border = No charge
$200.01 to $1,250 USD = $25.25 USD Brokerage fee
$1,250.01 to $2,000 USD =
$36.50 USD Brokerage fee
Each additional $1,000 or part thereof = $1.80 USD Brokerage fee
