The Importer of Record (IOR) & Exporter of Record (EOR) is officially recognized by governments as the official party of an international shipment transaction. While most companies export or import products to a specific business entity when selling or buying products, supporting warranty replacement and other emergency stock programs in various global destinations can be difficult without a sales party to act as IOR.
Base Logistics is highly experienced in offering IOR/EOR compliance, facilitating critical product imports and exports in countries around the globe. Our local partners, fully FCPA-checked before onboarding, have extensive knowledge of local customs conducting the export or import transactions.
Base Logistics can offer IOR and EOR services in 100+ countries today. We provide compliance services to move our customers’ products fully compliant through customs on a global basis. Base Logistics helps you to restrict the growing business risks in respect of customs and compliance.
According to the U.S. law, exporters need to ensure that their goods are not being sold to undesirable entities. Base Logistics offers a comprehensive denied party screening process, searching through internationally sourced excluded party lists.
We meet the strict requirements of the Customs authorities, which is why Base Logistics has been given the status of Authorised Economic Operator (AEO). In Europe, AEO status is the counterpart of C-TPAT, the security measures which the United States put in place following 11 September 2001. Thanks to the AEO certificate, our customers are much less likely to suffer delays through inspections.

The weight and the space a package takes up are important when determining the shipping costs. Therefore when calculating the price of your shipment, the so-called volumetric weight is also taken into account. It is important to calculate the volumetric weight for every shipment and to compare it with the actual weight in kilogrammes. The shipping costs are determined based on the higher of the two ‘weights’.
To calculate the volumetric weight, you first determine the volume: length x width x height (in centimetres). For shipments by air and the Express service of international couriers, you divide the volume by the factor 6000 (in some cases 5000). For the Economy service via the integrators, you divide the volume by 4000. For Domestic shipments via the integrators, you use the factor 3333.
The actual factor can vary per carrier. For a current quote of the volumetric weight (or dimensional weight) of your shipments, you are of course welcome to contact us any time.
In our logistics system, Klairy, you will find the current status of every shipment. If you already have a Klairy login, you can log in here. If you do not yet have login details, please contact us to request them.
If you presently only have the tracking number from one of the carriers below, you can enter the tracking number hereunder.
