The term “transit” refers to moving goods that have not cleared customs (i.e. that owe duties and taxes) from one customs office to another within and outside the European Union. It is a significant process for all enterprises that engage in international trade and it allows for the smooth cross-border flow of goods.
External and internal transit are among the most common transit procedures. External transit (T1) refers to the movement of non-Union goods or goods which are considered to have lost their Union status, while internal transit (T2) refers to the movement of Union goods.
The customs transit procedure is used for moving goods:
- between two points within a customs territory, though another customs territory
- between two or more different customs territories
BMR Customs Brokers’ customs transit services are aimed at a wide range of stakeholders, such as:
Merchants who wish to efficiently transfer their products across borders with minimal delays and customs formalities.
Forwarders (transit agents) and logistics providers who need assistance from experienced professionals able to navigate the complexities of transit procedures.
Enterprises involved in international trade, such as manufacturers, distributors, and wholesale and retail merchants who require seamless movement of their goods to reach their customers or production facilities.
The International Road Transport Convention (TIR) is an internationally recognised customs transit system that enables goods to move to a large number of countries with minimal customs formalities and reduced security risks. The TIR Carnet is a document used as a customs declaration and as a guarantee in countries which are contracting parties to the TIR Convention. It allows for the transport of uncleared (taxable) goods through many countries without payment of duties and taxes until they reach the destination country.
At BMR Customs Brokers, we undertake to issue the TIR Carnet through our network of partners, ensuring its timely submission to facilitate the trouble-free transport of your goods. At the same time, we can handle clearance of goods that are accompanied by a TIR Carnet.
The certified professionals at BMR Customs Brokers are deeply knowledgeable about customs transit regulations and can handle the entire process by recommending integrated solutions.
