Procedure & Storage

A week before the arrival of your goods, you will receive an Arrival Notice with the expected arrival date of the goods at the port of destination. As soon as your shipment has actually arrived, you will receive Collection Note which is required for the collection of the goods.
To prevent storage costs you get 10 working days free storage from the day of release. This gives you the time to pick up the shipment, or if desired we can also arrange further transportation for you.
Long-term storage is also an option. If you are interested in this, please contact us for more information.
