Imported goods we receive 20 ‘containers or 40′ containers we empty the containers and store the goods which will then be reloaded on trucks for delivery and delivery to the recipients of the goods.

Some warehouses are also in the foreign state, ie they are authorized by the Customs Agency to receive foreign goods and customs clearance for both customs and import customs.

The customs export and import customs procedure in foreign warehouses is very useful because it allows them to carry out their customs operations without the goods being subject to delays and heavy costs if the Customs Agency wants to make customs visits, in fact when customs checks are made with goods in containers at the ports of departure or arrival are paid heavy costs of port stop and goods handling, but with the goods in foreign warehouses Dogna can check the goods without them being emptied containers or that containers have to bear the costs of port stops.

In the warehouses we can load any type of goods, cars that will be put into containers, cargo on pallets, cartons loaded in containers, loaded with personal belongings in containers, loads of furniture in containers, packing of goods in cartons, packing over pallets, packing in wooden boxes, packing goods in cartons.

On request, we also charge on self-crushing ships that can receive other boats and yachts that are then fastened to the deck of the ship and transported to the destination.

The plant is followed with special care as usually these contracts are on a door-to-door basis and the machinery vendors must make the goods at the destination sites while also treating the assembly and testing so our assistance often ends only when the plant is completed And tested and we have to follow the packaging of the goods, truck loads, exceptional road transport, port support to embark on goods on ships, stowage, international shipping, disarmament and disembarkation in ports of Destination, road transport at construction sites and often assembly assistance by using the self-propelled cranes that are required.

Following an interim partnership agreement between Kenya and the EU, customs services may request an EUR.1 document when importing products and, in particular, when they are incorporated into the manufacture of a local product and re – EU.
Shipment less than 6,000 Euros or made by an accredited exporter may give rise to a declaration (such as EUR1, when incorporated in the manufacture of a local product and re-exported to the EU). This must be done on an invoice, delivery voucher or other commercial document that describes the product sufficiently detailed to be identified.
The statement is as follows:
The exporter of the products covered by this document (customs authorization number …) declares that, unless expressly stated otherwise, these products have a preferential origin …. (Place and date) …. (signature of the exporter And the full name of the petitioner).

C) Certificate of origin
For products of Community origin which can not benefit from an EUR.1 document and for non-Community products, a Certificate of Origin, as well as food, may be required, which must be drawn up on the Community form.
D) Phytosanitary certificate
Necessary for fruit, vegetables, seeds.

E) Health certificate for meat

Because of the risk of contamination of the “mad cow” disease, a number of countries have decided to suspend imports of meat and derived products from the countries of Europe.

As the ever-evolving list is suggested, contact your importer directly.

E) Certificate of free sale of cosmetics
Based on the information provided by the exporter, it certifies that the products shipped comply with the Italian law and free and current sales on the national territory.
The kenyota (kebs – kenya bureau of standards) has introduced the pre-export compliance test (PVoC) in the standardization program to ensure the quality of the products, which must also meet the health and safety standards and safeguard Environmental kenyans. Products must meet the requirements before they can be exported to Kenya – Non-compliant goods will be denied entry to the country. For Kenya only certain categories of food are exempted from the program (including flours, animal and vegetable oils and fats, fresh fruit, animal products and others).
All products subject to PVoC intended for Kenya must obtain a certificate of conformity in their country of origin prior to embarkation. It constitutes an indispensable customs document and the responsibility for obtaining it falls on the exporter.
The PVoC kenyota ensures that the goods meet mandatory safety and quality requirements, permits international trade, avoids customs delays and reduces potential losses from importing non-compliant products. The key elements of the PVoC are:
• Physical control before boarding;
• Sampling, testing and analysis in accredited laboratories;
• Audit of production processes;
• Documentary compliance with regulations;
• Assessment of compliance with standards.
From November 15, 2008, inspection can be carried out by two authorized companies.
The exporter should however initiate the request and choose the control office. Companies will be able to assist in the filling and plumbing of containers.
The country does not adhere to the ATA Convention. Temporary exports are made according to the procedure of your legislation by an agent.
