Customs Processes: more than just a risk, a lever of performance


International trade will grow by 4% in 2019. This recently revised downward projection by the IMF reflects the current trade tensions between the world's leading economies. The rise of customs duties and the increase of protectionist measures in China, in the United States and in Europe, the sanctions regimes against Russia or Iran constitute major challenges for importers and exporters.

In this context, Bolloré Logistics provides advice and counsel in order to ensure that international supply chains remain fluid and optimized, while remaining in full compliance with laws and regulations.

Whether it be the analysis of product flows, guidance to determine proper product classification, assessing transactional risk or defining the exact nature and final use of a product:
Our team of experts, with their in-depth knowledge of local conditions and regulations, can assist in the development of tailor-made solutions for our clients’ customs-related challenges thereby making them a lever for economic performance and success.

Freight Forwarders Pivotal in Supply Chain Risk Management

All companies conduct risk management analyses of their activities in order to establish and update contingency plans for overcoming disruptions when they occur.
