Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is import customs clearance?
Import customs clearance is a necessary procedure before goods can be imported internationally. After customs clearance, goods are in free circulation and can be handled accordingly.
Can I do my own customs clearance in-house?
You can make and submit an import declaration yourself or through a logistics partner, but this process can be complicated.
So, why shouldn’t you DIY customs? Well, firstly while united in trade agreements, customs authorities within the EU still have different electronic platforms for making and submitting import declarations. With a network of over 1,500+ experts from across Europe here at Customs Support, we are well-versed in the range of authorities and their unique requirements.
Secondly, changes in laws and regulations can be time-consuming to keep track of and can lead to errors. This complexity can result in delays and heavy fines. Plus, as every port is connected to a different port system, and these costs to apply for access (badges), on your own you would have to cover this cost – with us we do this for you! So, why risk it when we can empower your import customs clearance today?
