Customs Clearance

For the smooth international transport of cargo, conscientious preparation is essential. Well-prepared customs clearance is a basis for implementing the transport within the time and budget frame.

Customs clearance requires experience, together with up-to-date knowledge of national and international regulations. An experienced partner who understands the complexity of supply chains as well as international regulations facilitates the implementation process. With more than 100 years of experience and more than 70 offices worldwide, deugro offers competent support in the implementation of customs clearance for the entire supply chain.
