Customs

 

Custom Clearance is often seen to be one of the major headaches in the distribution process; stories of endless delays and added cost abound throughout the industry.

As one of the world's largest customs brokers, filing several million entries every year, we offer a specialized Custom Clearance Service designed to minimize the problems, costs and hold-ups and ensure consignments are delivered on time and hassle free. We negotiate complex international shipping regulations on your behalf at offices located at every major global port, airport and border crossing point.

We understand that each consignment is unique and that different customs rules apply to different products – food regulations will differ from electronic goods which will differ from furniture, and so on – and so we have made it our business to be aware of every customs directive that exists.

We also works closely with the world’s regulatory authorities, such as the WCO (World Customs Organisation) and the European Commission.

Our long-standing relationships with customs authorities mean we can provide a best in class service for our customers. And with customs getting more complex these days, even freely-circulating goods have to be reported to the appropriate authorities. That’s why our customs experts see to it that your goods get to their final, intra-community and international destination with minimum complication and maximum efficiency. With our consultancy and secondment services, you have a holistic customs partner of unmatched expertise, close at hand.
