International trade by road, rail, and water
The process of getting official customs approval and cooperation for your transport routes can be slow and complex, especially when third parties are involved. We understand the complexities involved with transporting cargo by road, rail, and water and kept this in mind when we designed TransitNet. We operate TransitNet services in Geneva under the supervision of SGS Maco either directly or through designated partners such as road transport organizations or similarly neutral organizations.
TransitNet is a secure, multilingual internet platform in which transit declarations are created, checked, and monitored in order to significantly reduce your transit times. TransitNet enables the transport and logistics industry to electronically submit transit declarations to customs, along with a financial surety that covers liability for tax obligations.
We request a due diligence release from the SGS Maco insurance companies for every potential client, and we act as a client with the customs authorities. We provide guarantees for customs on behalf of TransitNet’s clients, which cover any obligations (taxes, excise duties, etc.) for all transit activities. The guarantees are filed at the point where the client’s transit movements begin and cover the entire route to the destination. The client pays a fee for each transit movement.
As TransitNet is a flexible web platform, it can be adapted to transit activities in other countries, regions, and customs unions across the world. Contact one of our experts for more information.
