Customs Clearance

Customs Clearance is the most important part of the entire shipping process. Without Customs Clearance, it is impossible to get a hold of your goods.

Customs clearance service was once a highly regarded service that demanded a high price tag. With the emergence of digital tariffs and also with multinationals commoditising this service,  it has now lost much of the perceived importance it rightly deserves. Due to high competition in the marketplace, companies are cutting corners in opting for younger, less experienced brokers vs acquiring highly experienced but more expensive individuals. 


The results can be costly, and the importer runs the risks of not being compliant with their declarations. At TGL we hand pick our customs brokers and ensure they are well versed, experienced and are the best at helping us help our clients. 


TGL is formally recognised by the Australian Border Security as an Australian Trusted Trader. This accreditation demonstrates regulatory compliance with the Australian Government and the expertise of TGL staff to move cargo across the Australian border.
