Therefore we have become specialized in the preparation, packing, and shipping of dangerous goods.
Our expertise in dealing with dangerous goods (Dry Ice, Corrosive, Aerosols, Lithium battery, flammable Gas) allows us to carry out collection, packing to IAIA standards, and dispatch by air (all in the same day, if needed).

System for electronic customs clearance
In order to clear customs all declarations must be filed electronically, by connecting to the ATLAS System of the German Customs Administration.
This simplifies customs procedures and makes it easier to check the information entered before submission, and to forward it to all parties involved.
From brokerage and inspection to documentation and final clearance we perform these services in accordance with the legal procedures.
We promise our clients we will adhere to the standards recommended by industry, and provide them with the relevant customized solutions.
If required, we can also provide advice concerning customs tariffs, tariff concessions and duty rates.
We liaise directly with the European custom authorities and with international shipping and airline companies to ensure faster clearance of your goods through quarantine and customs procedures.
We are an Authorised Economic Operator (AEO), which means that we have easier access to customs simplifications and are in a more favorable position to comply with the latest security requirements.
All shipments must be properly packed to avoid damage during transportation with ordinary care in handling.
The proper packaging of goods for transportation requires advanced understanding of the different products and the distribution environment. It also requires detailed knowledge of all potential packaging materials.
We provide you with tailor-made packaging advice.
