Customs Documentation & Clearance

As a premier freight forwarder, we understand that navigating the complex world of customs clearances and transport documentation can be a daunting task for many businesses. That's why we've made it our mission to simplify customs clearance and related processes for our customers, ensuring a smooth and efficient flow of goods across borders.

Customs documentation is an integral part of international trade. It ensures compliance with local and international laws, helps calculate import duties and taxes, and facilitates the smooth clearance of goods at customs checkpoints. BDL has a team of experienced customs brokers who will handle all the necessary paperwork on your behalf. This includes preparing and submitting documents such as Import and Export Declarations, Transit Documents (T1), Certificates of Origin, and Commercial Invoices, amongst others.

Our specialists are well-versed in the regulations and requirements of different countries and member states, such as the EU, and we stay up-to-date with changes in customs laws and procedures, ensuring your cargo complies with the latest rules. This proactive approach minimises the risk of delays, penalties, or seizures of goods.

We also offer our Customs Deferment Account, which allows for the deferral of import duty and VAT payments. This service can significantly improve your cash flow by allowing you to postpone these payments until your goods are sold or used. It's one of the many ways we strive to support your business and make international trade more accessible and cost-effective.

Transport documentation, on the other hand, is essential for the actual movement of goods. It serves as proof of contract between the shipper and carrier, provides details about the goods being transported, and instructs the carrier on how to handle the shipment. Our team will take care of all transport documents, including Bills of Lading for sea freight, Air Waybills for air freight, CMR Consignment Notes for road freight, and CIM Consignment Notes for rail freight.

At BDL, we understand that the success of your business relies heavily on the timely delivery of goods. That's why we've invested in state-of-the-art technology that enables real-time tracking of your cargo. You'll be able to monitor the progress of your shipment at all times, giving you peace of mind and allowing you to plan your operations with confidence.

In addition to our comprehensive range of services, we're proud to offer a high level of customer service. We believe in building solid relationships with our clients based on trust, transparency, and mutual respect. Our team is always ready to answer your questions, resolve any issues, and provide expert advice to help you maximise your freight forwarding experience.
