AAM Logistics provides a comprehensive Customs clearance service for import shipments.
Our strength in understanding import regulations enables us to offer advice to Importers on all Customs related matters, for example, EORI, Duty Rates, Preferences, Licensing, Quota Requirements, Transhipment, Port Health, Carnet’s, IPR/OPR.
Links to the all major airports, ports and terminals and using the latest technology for electronic transmission direct to Customs, enables we to provide fast Customs Clearance of shipments arriving at all Ports and Airports nationwide.
What’s more, the rules, regulations, and laws are a bit different from country to country, sometimes from port to port within a country, making someone who specializes in Customs clearance very important to a shipper exporting and importing goods.
Having the wrong person handle your Customs brokerage can be very problematic. Shipping containers are warehoused as they go through Customs clearance. Warehousing and storage fees can add up quickly. If there is a problem with your Customs brokerage and your Customs clearance does not happen smoothly, your shipping costs could go up by hundreds to thousands of dollars.
On top of these costs, the delay in getting your shipping containers released to you because of Customs clearance problems could cost your business more money because the arrival of your shipment is delayed.
