Should our import clients not be in the country at the time their effects arrive, or be in posession of the regulatory documentation, we are able to offer Bonded Storage in our own secure Customs controlled facility, ensuring total control of the effects, and avoiding costly demurrages on containers. Customs examinations are carried out in this same facility, under our control.
Our license enables us to submit our own entries to Customs, ensuring a more personalized service, and the opportunity to negotiate directly with Customs should any problems arise with the clearance of the effects.
