The enormous complexity of import/export regulations and customs laws calls for considerable expertise, time and effort. All this is part of our core business. We have particular expertise in cross-border shipping between Germany, Italy, France and Switzerland. We arrange import and export, EU or transit customs clearance on your behalf, and can stand in as your approved recipient/sender and at border offices. We are also happy to take care of your VAT issues and the correct classification of goods. Our customs agencies are at your disposal for all your import and export requirements. We also send you a clear, straightforward monthly statement that includes unit prices.
If you want to import goods from abroad to Switzerland, or export them from here, we offer various customs services:
In most countries, you can register imported or exported goods online. We are familiar with the customs applications of the Swiss and most common EU customs authorities, and we can register you and your goods online in their customs customer administration on your behalf. We issue new computerised transit system (NCTS) shipping documents for all EU states and contracting parties who participate in the NCTS.
This customs procedure allows you to transport your goods duty-free and untaxed through Switzerland, the EU or EFTA countries. As this solely involves transit, the actual import or export customs clearance is only carried out in the country of destination. For the temporary import, export and transit of goods, we take care of your customs formalities with a Carnet ATA customs document or an escort ticket.
This form of import customs clearance allows you to declare your goods in any entry country of the EU (transit country) and deliver them tax-free to any other EU country (destination country). The best part is that the transit country doesn’t levy any import sales tax as your goods are only passing through.
When you move goods within the EU, you have to submit an Intrastat declaration. This is used to statistically record the actual movement of goods between the EU member states. You can leave that up to us.
On request, we can explain to you which customs documents you require and handle all customs formalities for you.
We make dealing with customs authorities easier for you.
This extensive knowledge benefits you in the form of time and money.
As we are acting as the AR/AS for you at multiple locations in Switzerland, your goods never get stuck at the border.

We can ensure you submit correct declarations and VAT statements.
