Delays at customs have to be kept to a minimum. Van Duuren also has its own customs department, which always has access to – and is aware of – the most up-to-date requirements. Having our own customs agent is crucial in the light of the Brexit, for example, and the rapid growth that we are experiencing as a partner in the CargoLine network.
The Netherlands holds an important position in the field of transport and distribution, both within and outside Europe. A climate that promotes flexibility in customs matters attracts a large number of companies to contract out their logistical activities within the Netherlands.
In comparison with other EU countries, the Dutch customs regulations provide a great degree of freedom with regard to the handling of customs-controlled goods. Furthermore, there are also opportunities to transfer the liability for payment of VAT, in order to avoid making unnecessary payment payable directly on import into the EU.
