Russian Customs Import advice

How Russian Customs works: It is the responsibility of the buyers in any country, to confirm with the customs in their own country that they are allowed to import the goods they are buying from UK suppliers. Russian companies or private parties buying from UK must be a contract holder with Russian Customs, or they can use the services of a technical importer of a Customs Broker, who will take on the responsibilities of importing the goods and help the buyers check with the Russian Customs authorities: What the HS Commodity Codes are for the goods being imported from UK to Russia, the Customs Duty and Taxes rates to be paid and any special documents Russian customs require. We do not arrange Customs Clearances in Russia; the importers Broker arrange this work and charge the local costs to the Russian buyers. EON Logistics are happy to recommend a Russian Customs Broker to the importers, should the Russian importers not already work with one.

Export Cargo Insurance for Russia

  • It is important to arrange cargo insurance cover, in the event of a damage or pilferage occurrence during transport to Russia from UK.
  • Your Cargo is not insured, unless you arrange via your own companies Insurance brokers, or you ask your Freight Forwarder to quote for Goods in Transit Insurance cover and you accept their quote.
  • You should not rely on the transporters to Russia liability insurance cover, under CMR, Air or Ocean terms and conditions. This does not equate to the value of your goods and may rely on some proof of negligence by the transport company (which can be difficult to prove).
  • It is important to suitably export pack your goods to withstand the normal multiple handling or stacking it will endure throughout an international transport movement to Russia from UK.
  • Insurance companies and transport carriers may refuse to accept any claims, if cargo is not suitably export packed.

What is Freight Forwarding?

Freight Forwarders are a bit like travel agents, in that instead of knowing all the best passenger airlines serving Russia, best beach resorts, hotels or cruise lines for your holidays to Russia, a good Freight Forwarder will know the most reliable UK to Russia Road Transport operators, Ocean Freight Shipping services and Air Cargo Carriers, from the large number who advertise international logistics services from UK to Russia.

Your Freight Forwarder does not own the Ocean vessels, the Road Transport trucks, or the Cargo Aircraft serving Russian ports from UK, his role is purely as an agent, to select the most suitable and cost effective cargo freight services from UK to Russia for his client’s international freighting needs.

Most Logistics Companies in UK, offering transport services to Russia, have experience of shipping normal/easy to handle commercial cargos, via Road Transport or as FCL/LCL in standard ocean shipping containers. Only a small number of specialist UK Project Freight Forwarders will have the right analytical experience of transporting cargos to Russia that is oversized or heavy cargo, out of the box. Transporting OOG or Oversized Cargo/Heavy Lift Freight to Russia requires many years of hands on Project Freight shipping experience, which we have in abundance.

Whatever you need to transport to Russia from UK and based on your delivery deadlines, we will identify and offer you a wide choice of road transport, ocean freight shipping or air freight cost and service options UK to Russia; we look after all the UK Road Transport, Port Security, UK Customs and the standard shipping documentation needs, required for shipping your cargo to Russia from UK.

Should the Russian buyers not have a local customs broker, to handle the local Russian import customs clearance requirements, EON Logistics can recommend reliable Customs Brokers in Russia, who can assist the Russian buyers with the special local import Customs Clearing Documentary requirements.
