Switzerland Customs Import advice

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. Swiss companies buying from UK will normally have a local Customs Broker, who will advise on their local Customs authorities importing requirements: What HS Customs Commodity Codes are appropriate for the goods being imported from UK, the local Customs Duty and Tax rates to be paid and any special documents Switzerland Customs will require. All UK export customs and import customs into Switzerland is performed electronically and subject to no issues or delays, customs clearance can be completed fairly quickly (sometimes immediately the truck or air flight arrives). A EUR 1 customs movement certificate is normally required by Swiss customs and the buyers’ customs brokers should confirm if this is required, together with all the documents they require from the shippers, before goods leave to the UK, in order that all documents required are supplied.

Goods in Transit Cargo Insurance for Switzerland

  • It is important to arrange goods in transit cargo insurance cover, in the event of a damage or pilferage incident during a road or air transport to Switzerland 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 Switzerland liability insurance cover, under their CMR road or Air waybill 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 is naturally difficult to prove.
  • We recommend that you must suitably export pack your goods to withstand the normal multiple handling, transhipping or stacking it will endure throughout a normal international road transport movement to Switzerland from UK.
  • Insurance companies and transport carriers may refuse to accept any claims, if cargo is not suitably export packed.
