Customs Clearing

This includes  the “clearing” of goods through customs barriers for importers and exporters (usually businesses). It involves the preparation of documents and/or electronic submissions, the calculation and payment of taxes, duties and excises, and facilitating communication between government authorities and importers and exporters.

Custom brokers may be employed by or affiliated with freight forwarders, independent businesses, or shipping lines, importers, exporters, trade authorities, and customs brokerage firms within our Association.

We provide customs clearance solutions for businesses of all sizes including courier companies, wholesalers, retailers and e-commerce businesses and even private individuals. Our tailored service can take the headache out of every type of importation.

Export and import services and delivery can be made door-to-door or door-to-depot.

Air Freight

Air transport is a vital component of many international logistics networks, essential to managing and controlling the flow of goods, energy, information and other resources like products, services, and people, from the source of production to the marketplace.

It is difficult or nearly impossible to accomplish any international trading, global export/import processes, international repositioning of raw materials/products and manufacturing without a professional logistical support. It involves the integration of information, transportation, inventory, warehousing, material handling, and packaging. The operating responsibility of logistics is the geographical repositioning of raw materials, work in process, and finished inventories where required at the lowest cost possible.
