It’s easier now than ever to locate products you need from around the world. But just because you’ve found a lower price for a product doesn’t mean it’s less expensive once you’ve paid to import it into your own country. In addition to the price of a product, you must factor in transportation costs, insurance charges, and fees that U.S. Customs may assess on the goods.

Our Landed Cost Calculator helps you determine an accurate estimate of the total cost, or landed cost, of your products by calculating the various import duties, VAT and excise taxes, and other government fees. It will also flag products that might be subject to anti-dumping or countervailing duties.

In addition to providing the estimated landed cost of a product from a single source, the Landed Cost Calculator helps you compare up to five different country source combinations. For example, you can easily compare the costs of a product sourced domestically against the cost of importing that same product from China or Mexico, so you can make the right decision every time.

Watch the video below to see how the Landed Cost Calculator works.

  • On the next screen, additional fields may be required depending on what your Import HS Number you entered. The fields with an asterisk are required.

  • Click Next.
  • The results will display for each country you selected. The Default Landed Cost is an estimate of the cost to import the goods using default duty rates. The Minimum Landed Cost is an estimate of the cost to import goods under a free trade agreement. Click the plus sign to see more details.
  • Helpful Hint: To make future screenings go faster, you can enter default values for some of the data elements by going to the Utilities tab, Default Setup screen.
