It’s all about flow
It’s one thing to design a transportation solution that integrates air, ocean, warehousing, and distribution maximizing efficiencies as goods move from point-to-point along the supply chain. It’s quite another to ensure those goods will flow freely across borders, navigating all the regulatory complexities and compliance issues that might arise along the way.
At Santova Netherlands, we are directly linked by EDI to the Dutch Customs and AEO certified which enables us to process all of your customs formalities in a customs approved environment.
We can act as a fiscal representative for EC (European Community) registered companies. This means that we can clear goods by using the VAT number of the EC registered consignee / buyer. Many companies are using this service in order to avoid clearance at one of the European borders and to avoid paying VAT upon clearance.
