Turkey 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. Turkish companies buying from UK will normally have a local Customs Broker, who will assist them check with their local Customs authorities: What the local HS Customs Commodity Codes are appropriate for the goods being imported from UK, the Customs Duty and Taxes rates to be paid and any special documents Turkish customs will require. Normally the Turkish importers customs broker will inform the UK shipper to arrange for the cargo to be delivered to for Customs clearance at a local Turkish Customs warehouse, near to their importers address. EON Logistics only transport goods to arrival Turkish customs warehouse uncleared, at the transporters depot, or Turkish air or sea port.. The importers Turkish Customs Broker then takes over, arranging and paying for all local handling costs, customs duty/taxes and delivery to the importers door. However, EON Logistics are happy to recommend reliable local Turkish Customs Broker to the buyers, if they do not already work with one. Customs clearance in Turkey normally takes 1 to 3 days, providing all the correct documents are with the buyers before cargo arrives.

Export Goods in Transit Cargo Insurance for Turkey

  • It is important to arrange goods in transit cargo insurance cover, for the rare event of a damage or pilferage incident during a road, sea or air transport to Turkey 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 Turkey 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 or shipping company, which is naturally very 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 transport movement to Turkey 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 Istanbul, Turkeys best beach resorts, hotels or cruise lines for your holidays, a good Freight Forwarder will know the most reliable UK to Turkey Road Transport operators, Container Freight Services and Air Cargo Carriers, from the large number who claim to offer international logistics services from UK to Turkey.

Your Freight Forwarder does not normally own the Sea vessels, the Road Transport trucks, or the Cargo Aircraft serving Turkey from UK, his role is purely as an agent, to select the most suitable and cost effective cargo freight services from UK to Turkey for his client’s international freighting needs and any timelines.
Most Logistics Companies in UK offering transport services to Turkey, have experience of shipping normal/easy to handle commercial cargos, via Road Transport or as FCL (Full container loads) in standard shipping containers. Only a small number of specialist UK Project Freight Forwarders will have the right analytical experience of transporting freight to Turkey that is oversized or very heavy cargo that is out of the box. Transporting OOG or Oversized Cargo/Heavy Lift Freight to Turkey requires many years of hands on Project Freight shipping experience, which we have in abundance.
