Indonesia makes use of a lane system for imported product inspection. Your consignment will be funneled into one of three different lanes, red, yellow, or green, for customs inspection. This is based on a combination of the import entity’s reputation, the type of equipment being shipped, and customs officers’ discretions.
Supplementary compliance requirements and additional inspections must be completed If you are shipping directly into a red channel. There is also the option of shipping into a green channel. This requires goods to be cleared in Singapore before moving to their destination in Indonesia. This approach may be significantly quicker, but there are additional freight costs. No matter which channels your goods are imported under, a trusted IOR can guide you through the process and ensure that your goods meet customs requirements.
