Customs clearance is an essential component of all export and import operations and a prerequisite for the legal transfer of goods across the border of the Russian Federation. It includes the following key points:
filling in customs declaration forms;
inspection of cargo;
calculation of duty in accordance with the classification of HS codes;
control over the payment of duties and other mandatory fees;
issuance of permits for transportation abroad;
providing supervisory staff with any extra information on the nature/volume of cargo.
Customs clearance can be carried out both by a direct cargo owner, and its authorized representative with relevant contracts, powers of attorney, licenses.
Our company does not offer customs clearance in the Russian Federation as a standalone service, however, if you outsource the transport component of your foreign trade contract (FTC), our experts and partners will consult you and assist in customs clearance and declaring of exports and imports.
If you ship cargo abroad, our team will finalize the procedure of regional export at the border customs.
If necessary, we offer bonded warehousing for cargo that requires special carriage conditions and act on behalf of the consignor or consignee in the event of customs inspection.
Our global long-term partnerships (in Europe, USA, Canada, Southeast Asia, China, Australia, etc.) help our company to offer customs clearance in other countries, including payment of customs duties and taxes through our client – the Russian party of the import/export transaction. Thus, a foreign supplier or buyer is exempt from customs formalities and payments in its country, which is often the key to successful cooperation with Russian partners. For example, your foreign buyer will receive cleared and ready-to-sell goods delivered to its warehouse (door-to-door (D2D) delivery service), and all costs of delivery and customs clearance will be included in the cost of your FTC. Or, we collect goods ex-works from your foreign supplier in the country of departure and ensure delivery to the airport of departure and customs clearance at the border.
With our help, you will be able to partner up with a foreign supplier or buyer on almost any chosen Incoterms for convenient and win-win cooperation.
We will be happy to contribute to the successful development of your business!
