Carnet ATA

A carnet is used for temporary import and re-export, temporary export and re-import as well as the transit of goods.

What we now know is that there are differences in prices from UK or prices from NL, it is also wise to register multiple skiffs under one document, that saves considerably on costs.

We still have some time to further elaborate search, but we'll keep you posted when we have information to make it appear so cheap.

You are always welcome to contact DARA ( if you need support in this matter.
