When moving goods in and out of a customs territory, the goods have to be handled under customs and tax law before they can be released into free circulation. Whether you send goods abroad as an exporter or whether you want to import goods from abroad as an importer, or whether you choose completely different transportation routes – your goods have to be cleared in all countries of departure and entry. Each country has its own different rules depending on the customs agreement in place. As a global logistics service provider in global trade, our customs experts know the provisions and guidelines of each country from which we export or into which we import, leaving you free to concentrate on your core business.
The issue of customs and the factor of time
Customs clearance is a key time factor in the transport chain. Delays in the supply chain mean higher costs. That’s why, if necessary, we carry out customs clearance when the goods are en route. We prepare customs clearance here. When the goods arrive at their destination, our experienced customs agents clear them without any delays and the goods can then be released into free circulation.
