Only a shipping company specialized in the shipment of perfumes, flavours and cosmetics can confidently address the specific needs of these industries:
- regulatory requirements associated with the shipment of products considered dangerous and phytosanitary.
- packaging and handling that are adapted to ensure security and quality conservation.
- authorized and secured warehouses.
- specific customs requirements
To maintain the olfactory properties of perfumes and flavours and their characteristics, shipping companies use packaging whose specific attributes need to be taken into account in terms of transport and storage.
Steel barrels, which are preferred for shipping perfume because they are coated with an interior varnish that is adapted to contact with the product, need to be approved for the shipment of dangerous materials, because of the presence of alcohol.
Flavours in powder form are best shipped in open-top plastic barrels, and liquid flavours in plastic barrels with drain plugs or plastic containers.
There are barrels and containers of all capacities (from 6 to 100 liters in general).
Regulated products belong to the categories of merchandise considered to be "dangerous", which are the subject of specific shipment-related regulations, because they represent a potential danger to the health and safety of people, infrastructures, and / or means of transport.
The shipment of dangerous merchandise is governed by various national and international regulations, particularly the IATA Regulation for the transportation of dangerous goods and the IMO's international maritime code for dangerous goods (IMDG). Freight forwarding and cargo agents, packagers, handlers, and others involved in the preparation and shipment of dangerous merchandise must comply with this regulation and complete regular training to ensure that their shipments are in compliance so that they can be handled quickly and easily by air and sea shipping companies.
The Mathez Freight Forwarding agencies are equipped to organize the shipment of your dangerous goods by air and by sea, because we possess the necessary accreditations, and we have trained and authorized personnel.
The "AEO" accreditation (Authorized Economic Operator) is granted by the Customs Authority to companies which satisfy strict customs criteria and demonstrate a continuous level of compliance and reliability with respect to the international logistics chain.
Working with a fully-certified "AEO" means that in shipping your goods you'll benefit from the following advantages:
Since 2013 Mathez Freight Forwarding has had AEO-Full status, which includes the "simplified customs" AEO certificate and the "safety-security" AEO certificate. When you work with Mathez Freight Forwarding, you can rest assured that all your customs operations throughout the EU and beyond will be handled with precision, reliability, and professionalism, according to the highest standards.
As soon as you anticipate shipment of a product, it is essential to verify the applicable rights and taxes, as well as associated regulation in order to fully appreciate customs risks and optimize your operations in terms of fiscal and customs requirements.
In the event of any doubt, request a product customs classification.
