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.
