We possess the specialist expertise and the operational know-how to advise you on all customs issues relating to imports and exports. We ensure neutral customs clearance, for example, and provide you with advice on all topics in the area of customs and tariff number search. Regardless of the sector and size of your company, we process your shipments rapidly and reliably, and develop customised solutions. ETS saves your company expensive and time-consuming documentation and administrative work.

ETS Transport & Logistics is an Authorised Economic Operator (AEO)

The status of Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) means that German customs have classified ETS Transport & Logistics as a trustworthy partner. We possess the highest awarded AEO level for “authorised for customs simplification, security and safety” (AEO C and AEO S) also known as “combined authorisation”. If your company is also classified as an AEO, this means we can ensure fast and easy customs clearance for your imports and exports.

In addition, we use the ATLAS system for both imports and exports, permitting export clearance with the customs office by electronic means. Trips to collect seals and courier costs for hard copy delivery are a thing of the past! The knowledge and expertise of ETS makes the customs-relevant international exchange of goods faster, simpler and cheaper for your company.
