At SGS we offer a range of independent monitoring services to improve performance under customs control or accelerating operations.
Obtaining customs approval and co-operation on paper for cargo routes can be slow and complex, especially if there are third-
parties involved. At SGS we understand the complexities of moving cargo in transit by road, rail and water, and we have designed TransitNet with these complexities in mind.
Under supervision in Geneva, we operate the TransitNet service either directly or by appointed partners such as road transport operators’ associations or similar neutral organizations.
