- Apr 16, 2018 -

A.Chinese shipment                            B.International consignee


A will complete and deliver the goods to B's company, Harare, Zimbabwe.

As the goods are about to be exported, company A has repeatedly asked company B whether they need (except the packing list, invoices and bills of lading).Company B has denied it after asking the local customs clearance company.After the goods arrived at country B, company B found that all kinds of documents needed to go through the local customs formalities.The most important document is BV certification provided by BV certification body.


The certification must be issued before the goods are shipped, and the company has to make an appointment with the local factory to check and check the quality of the goods to meet the local requirements.If it does not meet the requirements, this certification will not be provided to the factory.If there is no such certification, the consignee of the destination will not be able to pick up the goods at the customs.At the same time also cannot handle customs formalities.In this case, the following solutions are suggested:

1. Goods will be shipped back to China free trade zone, bonded zone duty-free into the bonded area, and then the customs clearance documents related to fill in invitation BV company to the bonded area to examine and check the work, to be BV certificate down re-export again.

2. In some undeveloped areas, their systems are not networked, and there are some tables under the table.And use PHOTOSHOP SYSTEM to make the changes.After that, the documents will be sent to the local customs again for customs clearance.

3. Consult local customs to invite local staff of BV certification company to carry out cargo inspection and inspection.

4. At the request of the customs of various countries in the world, each customs requires different time to auction the goods.Most of the goods are sold at local auctions in the three months after the cargo is stuck in the port, and the auction price is likely to be lower than the total tax rate.
