Customs import - simple and uncomplicated with ECL

Customs duty within the European Union has not existed for a long time. This has contributed to drastic simplifications in the movement of goods within the borders of the European Union. With a few exceptions, transit through Germany is also free, but prior registration for the transport of excise goods is necessary in order to pass customs control without unpleasant surprises.

However, the aforementioned customs control changes have not affected international trade, which is why imports and exports to non-EU countries are still subject to sometimes complicated and nerve-wracking customs controls. All goods that are imported from non-EU countries or exported to a non-EU country must be cleared through customs. Goods are increasingly being ordered online and sent by post. Within the EU, there are only a few restrictions here, but when shipping to third countries, the customs controls are different.

When it comes to the movement of goods to or from non-European countries, the issue of customs control is always a delicate matter. Because if goods are not marked correctly when imported or exported, it can happen that the goods are confiscated by customs. This not only causes significant delays in the supply chain for the goods concerned, but also unnecessary and, above all, avoidable costs. For this reason, it is particularly important that the requirements of the customs office are observed for international shipments. Unfortunately, finding the right identification for customs control often turns out to be more difficult than expected. So that you are spared such time-consuming problems at the next customs inspection, we are happy to support our customers with the vulnerable customs import and export. You can find out what we can do for you at ECL Euro-Cargo-Logistik Kontor GmbH.
