Customs Challenges | Transport & Logistics

Logistics and transportation companies often struggle with their customs clearance due to complex customs processes as well as ongoing changes in customs regulations and the classification of goods. It is crucial to ensure the correct classification of goods to calculate the correct customs rates and taxes and help use the appropriate trade agreements.

However, when transportation companies lack customs knowledge, they risk making mistakes that can be expensive to redeem.
Another hurdle when it comes to customs clearance is the preparation of customs documents, which can be lengthy and have to be filled out precisely, since errors or incompleteness can lead to delays and penalties.

Import and export compliance represents another challenge for logistics and transportation companies, as destination countries have different regulations that must be met. Companies that are unable to comply with these regulations can face heavy fines and delays in transportation.
