EU cargo declaration

Vessels loading in a non-EU port and bound for a EU port must declare all cargo in the first port of call in the EU, even when this first EU port is a bunker call or similar. If an intermediate port is non-EU, a new declaration is required.


The declaration to the customs is the responsibility of the carrier (when on voyage charter, the owners and when on time charter, the time charterer).


In order to serve you within the EU a signed contract should be in place. Our professionals can help you to comply with this EU legislation and continue your journey.


Our experts ensure that there will be no unnecessary delay due to EU customs paperwork.
