How does this work for shippers?

You're a business, and you want to get your goods to market. You decide to use a DDP contract for your transportation needs. When you arrange for the shipment, you're presented with a quote. The quote is a fixed price for the services you require. This price is independent from the price of your goods. You decide what you're willing to spend for the services provided.

When your goods are ready to be shipped, you contact the DDP Company to have them delivered to your port of choice. They'll then pick up your goods.

The shipper buys a single-use, pre-paid package that they use for a single-use shipment. They then create an order for the services they need. This order is what they're buying. Their DDP contract allows them to pay for the services they need and still keep the price down. When it's time to ship, the shipper calls the DDP Company to get their quote. Then they contact the DDP Company to book the shipment. Once the goods are ready to be shipped they contact the DDP Company to reserve their package.
