If the shipment to be delivered is Customs goods, the driver is required to present the relevant Customs documents upon arrival at the pick-up point. If this is not done, the consignment will be processed as community goods!
P&B is an authorized recipient and can usually unload Customs goods without direct supervision by Customs authorities.
After unloading, P&B must verify the identity of the goods. Deviations generally result in a “non-conformity declaration,” which may cause delays.
Under the transit warehouse procedure, goods may be stored for a maximum of 90 days. Thereafter, an approved follow-up Customs procedure must be initiated. The customer is informed of this in good time and asked for instructions.
