Customs Retainer Services are aimed at assisting clients by consulting at short notice. This service applies to large Import & Export Operations. It also applies to Clearing & Forwarding Agents.
This is a “well oiled” service offering. In other words, we have saved our clients millions in penalties, shipment delays and other risks.
We assist operational staff with technical Customs queries. Importantly, we provide referencing to source documents, with extracts often relayed (by your staff) to your clients.
Because of this, staff are in a position to make decisions with confidence. They also look professional.
