Hesnault, Your Authorised Customs Broker

Any time you trade goods – import or export – with countries outside the European Union (EU), a customs declaration must be made.

The form it takes and its content are defined by the Union Customs Code (UCC) and the latter's implementation provisions.

All incoming and outgoing goods and merchandise crossing through mainland France are subject to customs formalities.

At the international level, regulations differ from one country and continent to the next.

Drawing on our expertise in logistics and air and sea freight, including all international import and export activities, for goods and especially for medical and food products, the HESNAULT group will assist you through every step of your customs procedures.

Our HESNAULT Customs experts ensure that you receive personalised support to optimise, prepare and simplify all your customs clearance and exemption formalities.

Specialists in customs transit duties at our agencies in the Paris region, Roissy and Le Havre are ready to handle any request you may have.
