The TecEx Way: Pre-Shipping

Pre-shipping compliance

Our dedicated research and compliance teams have built up an extensive country and product database. We provide up-to-date insights into the myriad of pre-compliance requirements for each country. This includes accurately identifying product codes, classifying HS codes and ECCN numbers, and sourcing all necessary documentation.

Apply for All Licenses and Permits

We apply for all necessary licenses/permits and compiles the shipment pack on your behalf. We ensure this is done correctly to cut lead times. Our clients also enjoy access to our established Import licenses where necessary.

Accurate Cost Calculation 

We provide our clients with accurate, upfront costing. This includes customs import costs, duties and taxes, IOR fees, freight costs, and liability coverage.


The TecEx Way: In-Transit

Arrange pick-up of goods.

Once all pre-compliance has been approved, we pick up the goods from the desired location. This can be but is not limited to an office, warehouse, or directly from the manufacturer.
