Keeping an eye on customs regulations

The smooth and compliant transport of your freight over the customs borders of their respective destination countries is part of our role. DACHSER is highly familiar with all applicable customs regulations in various countries after having spent decades as a main player on the international stage. As such, we meticulously navigate your consignments through the extensive provisions of local and worldwide customs regulations and coordinate the entire customs clearance process with local authorities.

Our status as an AEO provides advantages in customs controls

Local customs authorities have certified DACHSER as an “Authorized Economic Operator” (AEO), one of the first major logistics providers to be awarded this certification. This comes with security-related customs control benefits worldwide – benefits which we are able to pass on to our customers: Our extensive, customs-approved security standards not only simplify customs clearance, but also stand as a seal of approval for your global trading partners.

Fast transport with correct documentation

We facilitate a smooth shipping process by precisely drafting all necessary documents for customs and authorities.

They are also responsible for shipments from third party countries with direct transport to other EU countries.
