Goods imported into the European Union (EU) will have to be cleared by customs before they can be traded freely. This means that Value Added Tax (VAT) and customs duties will have to be paid. Broekman Logistics has its own independent customs brokerage department which offers services in the field of customs clearance, including fiscal representation and tax advice in combination with (bonded) warehousing. We guarantee complete neutrality before, during and after business has been done.
