The Zonos Landed Cost API 

The Landed Cost API will provide a complete breakdown of duties, taxes, and fees that make up a total landed cost.

Zonos Landed Cost simplifies an otherwise complex method for calculating duties and taxes on international imports. We deliver a true total landed cost calculation, including the sum of duties, taxes, and additional fees from customs, brokers, or the shipping carrier.

While providing harmonized (HS) codes allows Zonos Landed Cost to return the most accurate duty calculation, we will return the approximate amount of duties and taxes even when a harmonized code isn't provided.

Zonos provides millions of landed cost quotes each month, delivering confidence and peace of mind for selling internationally to hundreds of companies around the globe.

Capabilities
