DSV has launched a new service called DSV Customs Classification as it aims to perform the arduous process on behalf of shippers to ensure regulatory compliance and ease the administrative hassle.

The company said the new service will address the time-consuming process of overseeing all the requirements needed to comply with local customs regulations in different countries.

“To be able to export a simple screw to one country, you need to sometimes determine many specific details in a complex and laborious process,” said Robert Wisniewski, customs manager, international shared service center, at DSV, adding that the company provides a structured, straightforward process which can be used early in the company’s import and export planning activity.

The new customs classification service is divided into seven steps, where customs information about the goods is analysed, classified and validated by experts on behalf of the customer. When all customs documents are ready to be handed over to the relevant authorities, DSV shares this with the customer.

“The DSV Customs Classification team consists of subject matter experts who have an in-depth understanding of global merchandise as well as the legal aspects of customs tariffs. They ensure that products are thoroughly analysed and matched with the relevant tariff numbers,” says Wisniewski.

The risks associated with the use of the wrong classification ranges from simple errors and time spent to disputes with authorities that can take time, cost a lot of money and cause delays in deliveries, DSV noted. In serious cases, customers even risk having shipments seized and import privileges denied.
