Duration of customs clearance

I am ordering a parcel from the UK that costs 63 GBP, including shipping. This translates to 78.54 CHF, which naturally incurs extra fees at customs.

My question is: how much time will it take to receive my parcel, from the time it arrives at Zurich airport?
Do I have to first pay the import fees and then receive it?

If I am correct, the extra charges will be:
  • 6.28 CHF for the 8% VAT
  • 18.- CHF as processing fee, from a non-neighboring country
  • 12.- CHF for postage fees
