Customs Broker in Regina
The primary exports to Australia from Saskatchewan province and its capital city Regina are agricultural machinery and semi-processed legumes. Without the right assistance in the form of a freight forwarder and customs broker, these can be difficult to both ship and have quickly processed and cleared by the Australian Border Force and the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE). If you’re preparing to export products from Regina to Australia for the first time, or have experienced problems exporting to Australia in the past, contact Platinum Freight’s Regina office to discuss your needs and see how we can assist in simplifying the process for you.
What Is a Customs Broker?
Customs brokers always have a detailed understanding of the import regulations and customs requirements for the country that they are based in; this allows them to assist exporters in preparing their products and all customs documentation to minimise any delays in the products clearing the borders in the destination country. This includes classifying the products correctly, checking whether any permits are needed for the particular product and collating and checking required documentation such as commercial invoices for the goods, bill of lading, packing list and packing declaration and or phytosanitary requirements.
Platinum Freight® are licensed Customs Brokers in Australia and we know exactly what is needed when exporting different types of items from Regina to Australia so that they can be cleared by the ABF and Agriculture without costly delays. This also allows us to offer a Reverse Clearance® system so you know what the costs will be before your goods even depart Saskatchewan province, including duties and taxes – which we can pay on your behalf and invoice to you in Canadian dollars.
Do I Need a Customs Broker in Australia?
