We handle the job of reporting in case importer has not hired any carrier service.
Customs require many documents in order to verify the products value, classification, tariff treatment, country of origin and rate on goods. Most of these details can be find out on the invoice. However, there may be demand of other documents also by the customs. So, the hard copy of all these documents must be presented in the customs office for the releasing of goods.
