Customs formalities

Custom clearance
All export cargo must be custom cleared before arrival to port. This is due to increased security from the Swedish Customs Authority. The exporter is always responsible for the cargo being customs cleared in due time.

As from the 1st of June 2013 the possibility to mark an export booking with Q will cease to exist. As a carrier, we are responsible to report the customs status, MRN, to the Swedish Customs for all export containers that we load. MRN must be reported on container level. Late received or incomplete shipping instruction may lead to the container not being loaded on the vessel. The MRN number must be provided to local office no later than the time specified in your the booking confirmation.
