Generally, a trade invoice and a packing list are sufficient for a freight consignment. However, rapid customs clearance can often only be guaranteed when the necessary customs documents are enclosed with the goods. This does not only speed up the clearance, but it is also a question of money you can save when you produce the correct documents.

    In any event, you should check carefully which documents are necessary for customs in the case of imports in order to be allowed to import the goods or to be able to claim better customs rates.
