We assist operational staff at Customs Clearing & Forwarding Agents with day to day technical Customs queries.
Our monthly Retainer Service Agreements are aimed at assisting our clients by being available at relatively short notice to answer any technical or complex Customs related queries.
We will provide your staff with technical explanations, referencing source documents. Your staff will be in a position to make decisions with confidence, with our technical explanations relayed to clients professionally.
This is a “well oiled” service offering. We have saved our clients millions in penalties, shipment delays and other Customs related risk.
