There are many elements to consider when shipping to a country such as Peru.
If you are in Canada or the US and not entirely familiar with the Latin American market, you should consider a cargo shipping company that knows the business culture, the language, the customs regulations and has a proven track record of success when it comes to shipping to Peru.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT IN PERU?
Regulations in Peru are not only very different from the ones in the US or Canada, communication methods and business etiquette are also very distinct:
● Corporate culture in Peru is relationship-driven. Peruvians are proud people of their Inka heritage. They value trust, honor & camaraderie. In Peru, people attach great importance to developing personal relationships rather than formal business connections which is the norm in the US or Canada. Therefore, it is important to develop easy going business “friendships”, as Peruvians tend to be cautious in business interactions to avoid being taken advantage of or cheated. Peruvians may be more loyal to you personally rather than to the company you represent. Third-party contacts are also a key to business success in Peru. An established person vouching for you and presenting your company will help you gain trust in the market.
● Flexibility and spontaneity are also common traits of Peruvians. In Peru, there is a less strict sense of time than in US and Canada.
● It is also important to consider the language as a possible barrier. Although most highly-educated business executives speak English fluently, the average person speaks only Spanish.

IMPORT AND CUSTOM PARTICULARS
If you are sending merchandise to Peru by sea or air for the first time, guidance and support will surely be needed, as there are guidelines, prohibitions and restrictions to consider.
WHAT PAPERWORK IS NEEDED FOR INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS TO PERU?
Documentation requirements vary depending on the category of goods being shipped and can get quite extensive. They usually include: Commercial invoice, Bill of lading / Air waybill, Packing list, Insurance certificate, and Certificate of Origin (if required).
To avoid delays or hassles when shipping to Peru, your packing list must be as detailed as possible. Vague wording like “miscellaneous” attracts negative attention and further inspections.
WHAT ARE THE REGULATIONS AND RESTRICTIONS WHEN SHIPPING TO PERU?
Regulations can be strict on certain categories of goods being imported to Peru. Prior authorization or special permits may be needed for certain items such as agricultural products, processed foods, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics or antiques. Prohibited commodities include certain used vehicles, used clothing and accessories, used tires, certain used machinery and all types of toxic wastes or dangerous residues.
Duties and tariffs are usually based on the total value of the shipment in question, and depending on how well-documented the cargo is, those values could be determined by the judgment of Customs Officials on the spot.
