Import: Containers arriving via seaport are received at the terminals after presentation of shipping documents and then forwarded to the recipients according to the importer’s instructions. All necessary customs procedures are handled in this process. Following the importer’s instructions, the incoming goods are either sent directly to the European interior in containers or unloaded and temporarily stored in Hamburg – including free of customs duty in the open customs warehouse.
