Customs Clearing

Customs clearing includes preparation of Bill of Entry and submission to Customs. There is a need for specialist knowledge in this field, as there is a risk of penalties from Customs for incorrect classifications due to changes in the legislative requirements. We boast of vast experience in customs clearing and creation of documents for tax and customs purposes, hence we assure all our clients of very minimal delays in the movement of their cargo once we receive pre-alerts.

A bonded warehouse is a secured facility supervised by customs authorities, where dutiable landed imports are stored pending their re-export or release on assessment and payment of import duties, taxes, and other charges. The bonded warehouse can also be termed as a duty-free zone, licensed by the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority. When goods are stored, an agreement is entered into by AWS Global Freight Pvt Ltd and customs authorities where we undertake safe storing of goods and the payment of import duties.

All warehouses are highly secured with around-the-clock security guards, parameter fences outside, divisional roof levels fences inside, and lockable gates. All bonded areas have brick walls to the roof with steel sling doors. AWS Global has standing arrangements with sub-contractors country-wide, and can cater for any storage requirements for their clients.
