With races sometimes a week apart, logistics teams need to be as well-oiled as the cars to keep things moving. A single piece of equipment can be the difference in a race, with winning and losing sometimes coming down to milliseconds on the final lap.
This is why there are often five or six sets of duplicate equipment moving at the same time. Teams need guarantees that their equipment will be there for the events. But with all the high-speed chaos of transporting Formula 1 around the world, how are all the goods moved through customs? Find out in this article.
Terneuzen lies in Zeeland in the southwest of the Netherlands and is part of the North Sea Port. The Terneuzen canal, which runs from Terneuzen to Gent, is an important shipping route. Ships need to go through locks in Terneuzen to enter the canal. To increase the capacity of the locks and to allow larger vessels to enter the canal, the new lock is under construction.
The Process Before Using Inward Processing
Let’s look at the business case for one of our clients, a company specialising in calibrating and repairing specialised measuring equipment. Customers worldwide ship their devices to our client in the Netherlands. They work their magic and send the machine back to its owner.
Many products and materials are produced by different companies in different countries, both inside and outside of the European Union. In regions that have, for example, lower labour rates, it is possible to produce these goods at a far lower cost than inside the European Union and thus sell them at a lower price. These products are then “dumped” at a far lower price on the EU market.
The Customs Authority will check if the import declaration matches the ATO. The Aangifte Tijdelijke Opslag (ATO), which translates into the Declaration of Temporary Storage, is the carrier’s responsibility when the goods are unloaded. If there are discrepancies, the Customs Authority will refuse the import. They will also check if the goods are available, in other words, if the ship has already arrived at the port. If not, the Customs Authority will deny the import declaration.
If we become your customs broker, there are several legal obligations we have to obey. One of these obligations is a thorough screening of our clients. With that screening, we make sure our clients are compliant with all rules and regulations. The law requires us to check a list of up to 40 items to make sure we know every relevant detail about you and your business. For example, we review your business credit score at Dunn & Bradstreet.
