Having own business often implies import of goods from abroad, and if the principal direction is import, you cannot do without services offered by a logistics company. However, anyone who uses services of transportation from abroad knows perfectly well that you cannot just leave it at that. After the goods are shipped, there is another procedure – customs clearance, obligatory for all types of cargo from abroad. At that, the main problem is not the complexity of the process, but dozens of necessary documents and conventionalism.
Usually there is a customs broker, a separate company, which represents the interests of client-importer. Customs broker is in charge of consulting, preparing documents, carrying out calculations with customs etc. Obviously, these services are costly and they don’t seem cost efficient, especially if the dimensions and the delivery cost are not that big.

Our staff will prepare all necessary documents and submit these to customs authority at the appointed time. Workflow of our work while customs clearance is as the following:
At that, cargo delivery from abroad can be performed by all means of transport except of rail. Cargo itself can be of any size, weight and type (the only exception is perishable products). We make customs clearance in Saint Petersburg and Leningrad Oblast, Northwestern Federal District and other regions of Russian Federation. The cost of customs services is calculated individually for each cargo that allows avoiding additional expenses while delivery and documentation process.
