Import & Export
We provide companies importing goods from third countries or exporting goods to third countries with advice on VAT, we do risk assessments, complete and check the documentation, handle the administration, assist with physical checks of the shipment, and do the actual declaration with the Customs Authority.
If goods need to be transported within the European Union without bringing them into free circulation we can create the necessary T-1 documents.
Certificate of origin
Determining the origin of goods in international trade is a complex matter. Obtaining the correct documents of origin will ensure that goods enter the country of destination without any complications. Origin documents are usually handled and issued by the Chamber of Commerce. Our extensive knowledge and experience within this area of expertise enable us to always find the smartest solution.
Our highly skilled Consultants are multi-deployable and can support companies with a wide range of issues. They work as in-house declarants or manage customs departments. Others have consulting roles and can offer support when it comes to HS Codes, determination of origin or other specialist customs-related matters.
Training and workshops
Next to organising in-house training courses and workshops to keep people in the logistics and supply chain field up to date and compliant, we also have an independent training institute with a focus on specific parts of the logistics chain: customs, safety, health, economy, environment and hazardous substances: The Customs Academy.
We have the permits to offer fiscal representation to companies that want to reclaim VAT, without being registered in the Netherlands.
Gas measurement and degassing
Using our advanced FTIR (Fourier Transform InfraRed) gas analysers we can measure hundreds of chemicals, substance-specific and within a few minutes. We can degass containers or our specialists can unload them with special suits and equipment.
Our specialists can help companies set up a bonded warehousing facility by assisting with the request of specific permits and setting up the administration
