Customs clearance reference project

Find out how a well-known German car repair shop with hundreds of branches
was able to drastically reduce its service costs thanks to our service:

PureProgress Zollagentur Dokumente

The in-house customs department of a large German workshop chain contacted us regarding the preparation of customs documents. Due to the closure of several branches in Switzerland, we were asked to take over the entire preparation of the Swiss export declaration incl. Take over the creation of the transit document T1. The company did not have customs declarants with the appropriate knowledge of Swiss customs law, which is why it turned to us. The difficulty with customs clearance: The stores each had several thousand products in stock. These included every conceivable product in the industry, from nuts and bolts to mints, tires, lifts, engine oil and simple vehicle parts or stickers. In total, an export declaration and tariff classification had to be made for over 25,000 goods items. The customer had already provided us with the German export tariff numbers, but these do not match the correct Swiss tariff numbers. As a result, we had to apply a separate tariff for the goods.

With the help of its own software solutions, PUREPROGRESS was able to combine the more than 25,000 goods items into approx. 450 customs tariff numbers per store. This also included summarizing the product descriptions and determining the quantities required in the declaration. As a maximum of 100 customs tariff numbers may be listed per Swiss export declaration, each branch could be recorded under customs law in five documents (for approx. 450 tariff numbers) instead of the regular 40 documents per branch with 100 items each. This has drastically reduced the amount of work involved. The customer was thus able to save several thousand euros while complying with customs laws. The creation of the transit documents T1 incl. PUREPROGRESS also assumed liability for any import duties that may arise and handled them reliably.
