Customs Brokerage and Insurance

Our transportation and warehousing services are accompanied with complementary services like customs brokerage, cargo insurance or inventory insurance.

When arranging for export, import or transit customs clearance, we provide our customers with so called indirect representation with the customs authorities (which means we act on our own behalf, at customer’s account). We are an approved holder of simplified customs procedures, which mainly means that we can communicate electronically with the customs authorities. Thanks to those simplified procedures and also to our financial bonds deposited with the customs authorities, we can provide our customers with highly effective and professional brokerage services.

As a special part of our customs brokerage services, we offer to our customers a possibility to place their goods to our excise or bonded warehouses where special conditions apply. (For more info, pls see the chapter Excise and Bonded Warehousing.)

For those companies that do business with suppliers or customers from other EU countries (intra-EU trade), we offer Intrastat reporting which is a legal obligation in such cases.

As a warehouse operator, we are liable for all goods received to our warehouse, and that is why we keep our legal liability insurance. In addition to this and on request of our customers, we can also arrange for the inventory insurance of customers’ goods which covers risks beyond our legal liability, it means mainly the risks of natural disasters or robbery.

Last but not least, on request of a shipper, we can arrange for cargo insurance in domestic or international transport. In most cases, such insurance is arranged on basis of all-risk insurance calculated for 110% of the commercial value.
