SGS e-Customs for Transporters

TransitNet is designed for transporters who are seeking to save time and reduce waiting times at departure, border and arrival locations. With our TransitNet solution, where SGS acts as an authorized consignor from many locations, transporters can start transits 24/7. This ensures that transporters can cross borders efficiently – customs controls occur only on one side of the border (scanning of a barcode) and deliver goods at an authorized consignee’s premises or at a government customs office. TransitNet supports transporters, both large and small. Regardless of their size, companies appreciate the benefits that TransitNet can provide.

TransitNet also enables our clients to create, submit and monitor their declarations until the goods have arrived at their destination and the declaration has been discharged. There is no need to be a customs expert – the web based application guides you step by step in completing your transit declarations. TransitNet clients do not need their own customs guarantee, and they do not need their own customs software, saving them a lot of time and money. TransitNet is a simple “pay per click” services where users simple pay for transit declarations they have submitted to the national customs systems.

Bundling transit with export declarations, which SGS also offers from a number of countries, reinforces the transporter’s capability to offer their customers a single provider of the necessary customs declarations for the outbound journey. SGS can also offer import declarations in certain countries to complete the customs process. Current interfaces between SGS customs declarations applications reduce the time needed to create declarations from certain countries.
