For international business, many different documents are required to be able to transport the goods across international borders. What happens when there are important export documents that are missing for transport? Print Panther supports onboard document management and actually supports in making the journey more efficient.
Companies that do business internationally are faced with export documents also known as the T documents. There are different types of export documents that are used for different purposes. such as: financial documents, origin documents and transport documents. An invoice, packing list and CMR Freight document is required for every export assignment. There is also a difference between documents within the European Union and outside the European Union. Sometimes it’s also required to hand over dangerous goods documentation, health certificates, inspection certificates or additional origin documents for the import or export of goods.
A foreign customer can also request an additional export document to save on import duties in his country. A lot of countries have their own export document requirements and these can differ greatly among them. Often, countries have their own trade agreements for example, and these can drive different export document requirements.
Customs authorities supervise and check all export documents required for import and export goods. In addition, Customs checks if the taxes due on import are paid and whether goods on export comply with the regulations. Because there are many different export documents and different customs rules apply, it can occur that wrong or missing documents are included with the freight.
It often happens that an additional report or document has to be filled in at the border or customs control. The driver must receive the required and completed documents from his client and, if the required documents are missing, the driver must first get them before he can continue his route. If the driver has to wait a long time for the right documents at customs, transport will take longer and may even result in penalties or additional charges and fees.
Wouldn’t it be easy if the driver could receive the documents digitally, sent to his car by mail or a message with attachment on his on-board computer? The driver could print the export documents anywhere, anytime!
