Our head office is strategically situated in Venlo (NL) with 12.000 m2 bonded warehouse (incl. AGP license) and daily connected (by inland rail and barge terminals) with the main ports in Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Antwerp. Our focus is on customs related traffics and logistics activities by concentrating on import/exports from overseas and non-EU countries.
In 2014 we achieved to become an official AEO-certified company.
We also offer neutral consolidation services (collection/distribution) for international partners, which require the issue of export documentation (EXA / ATR/ T-1 / CVO etc.) or customs clearance. One of our specialisms is the Turkish market.
We can also act as (limited) fiscal representative for EU and non-EU clients, which offers full benefits to our clients by having easy access to the EU-market without having commitments of being registered at EU-tax authorities.
With all these ingredients and specialisms we strive to be an all-round service-provider in customs trade and logistics for our global partners and customers.
