Managing every stage

An ATA Carnet is an international customs document which permits the temporary export and import of goods into a country for up to a one-year period. The documentation provides details of the items being transported and is used to clear customs without paying duties or taxes, acting as a record of the items at point of exit and return to the country of origin.
