Customs Challenges | Manufacturing
Customs clearance can be a challenging topic for manufacturing companies, as many struggle with complying with customs regulations in the increasingly complex world of international trade, where laws are constantly changing. This is why it is crucial that manufacturers ensure that their customs documents are filled out correctly and required customs duties and taxes are paid. Otherwise, mistakes or carelessness can result in delays, penalties or even loss of goods.
Besides managing their customs, manufacturers must also deal with other aspects of international trade, such as packaging, transportation and insurance of goods and merchandise, which makes customs clearance time-consuming and resource-intensive.
If customs clearance is done incorrectly and customs authorities should find irregularities or the absence of important documents, e.g. certificates of origin, customs penalties can occur.

Customs Compliance - When Bike Parts Become Not Assembled Bikes
It is essential to comply with all customs rules and regulations. Non-compliance can lead to delays, fines, or even refusal of your shipment. Sometimes the line between compliance and non-compliance is thinner than companies realize. We are seeing an increased number of issues with imported bike parts, where the Customs Authority sees them not as bike parts but as non-assembled bicycles.
