Mandatory palletization Kuwait

November 2017

The Kuwait customs authority has implemented a new customs rule. With immediate effect, all cargo shipped to and from Kuwait must be palletized.

This applies to all import and export cargo, for every FCL and LCL shipments.

Customs will charge penalties if the new requirements are not met. Cargo will then be released upon these penalties.

Don’t hesitate to contact us for more information for all your import and export shipments from and to Kuwait.

Customs: HS code

November 2017

On our website, under practical info, you will find more information about customs documents.

An important part for these documents is a HS code, also known as a statistics number or commodity code, is a 10-digit code with which any tradable commodity is classified. This system of codes is used worldwide. Internationally the first 6 digits are the same. The last numbers may vary per country or region.

To have complete assurance that you have the right HS code, you can ask customs for a “Binding Tariff Information” (a BTI). The BTI is then applied to the same commodity, throughout the entire EU.

Visit our customs page under practical info for more information.
