Professional customs clearance with Rhenus

The import of goods from a non-EU or third country into the EU must be declared to the customs authorities and import duties such as customs duties and taxes must be paid. Customs experts make absolutely sure that all the formalities involved in cross-border transport are dealt with quickly.

Any questions?

Our experts are always there for you. If you wish, we will also call you back – keeping things convenient and straightforward.

Tariff numbers, customs rate and customs value

During the import process, each shipment of goods is assigned a tariff number, which assigns it to a specific customs rate. The customs rate, together with the customs value (which is calculated on the basis of the invoice price with additions or deductions), constitutes the basis for the customs amount to be paid.

Nowadays, customs clearance is for the most part carried out as an electronic declaration of the freight documents.

Holistic customs services

The customs experts at Rhenus will also support you in all matters of compliance. For instance, we make sure that all anti-terrorism regulations and trade restrictions are observed.

Storage in our bonded warehouses

Based on your specific needs, your goods will be stored in our bonded warehouses duty unpaid as well as secure, theft-proof and weather-protected until they continue on their further transport route to their final destination. In our capacity as an authorised consignor, we can clear goods at authorised locations without being on site ourselves and also involve third parties in this authorisation.
