Customs clearance is an important step in the process of international air freight moving. A customs officer must verify that the documentation completed for shipments is accurate and complete. This includes a commercial invoice with the sender and recipient's contact information, as well as the date of export and the number of the air invoice. All products shipped internationally must pass through customs before they are allowed to enter or leave a country. This applies to any type of shipment, including air cargo.
As an air cargo carrier, it is your responsibility to ensure that your products comply with all applicable customs regulations. Understanding the steps involved in customs clearance can help make the process smoother and easier. By having voicemail available during business hours, transport professionals and internal customs coordinators can quickly obtain accurate transportation quotes with a 26% accuracy rate.
