Import

Import procedures:

  • Special Customs Requirements
  • Customs clearance details 

Import restrictions:

  • Commodity – There are no restrictions in place. Special certificates are needed for plants/seeds (phyto-sanitary certificate), and meat or fish (Veterinary and Origin certificates). Please ask our Customer Service team for more details.
  • Weight and measurement – For general information on weight and measurement restrictions please contact your local Sealand Maersk office. The general road limitations are 48 mt for truck, chassis, cargo and tare weight of container, which in reality means that most containers can be loaded to the max payload.
  • Special Cargoes – There are generally no restrictions, though for trucking to inland points special permits may be needed (dependent on the actual oversize, so please inquire). For dangerous cargo the dangerous cargo papers must be provided and approved at the time the booking is placed. Please ask our Customer Service team for exact details.
