Customs Clearance/Disputes

Customs clearance is the process of making declarations of your goods at the customs authority associated country with the destination of the goods. It involves preparation and submission of documentation required to facilitate exports or imports into the country. Customs clearance in any country follows a two way procedure:

  1. The customs clearance procedure is carried out in the country of supply of goods.
  2. The customs clearance procedure carried out in the destination country

Having the wrong person handle your customs clearances can be very problematic. This is so because the custom rules and regulations are quite different for each country, sometimes from port to port within a country. Shipping containers are kept in the warehouse as they go through customs clearance. If there is a problem with your customs clearance and your customs clearance does not happen smoothly, your shipping costs could go up by thousands of naira.

This is why it is important to get a freight forwarding company that can handle all your customs clearance procedures and also solve any clearance disputes that could arise. The customs clearance procedure in Nigeria can be daunting sometimes, to save up on time and shipping expenses, you need the best clearing agency that can handle all the procedures.

Finding the Right Custom Clearing Service…

It is crucial that you find someone who can handle not just your clearance documents, but can also handle what comes next – shipping your goods to the intended destination.

The experience importers and exporters go through in the hands of freight forwarding companies in Nigeria is horrifying. For these reasons, going with the cheapest freight forwarder you can find to handle your shipping needs can turn out to be much more expensive than hiring a freight forwarder with a slightly higher quote but who has much more experience and reliability in making deliveries in an agreed timeline.
