Welcome to Inter-Sped

Customs Broking
Inter-Sped Gauteng (PTY) LTD is registered with customs as an Accredited Agent, with Electronic Communication (E.D.I) with Custom's and Excise in all the main gateways of South Africa ,enabling us to clear shipments through customs 24 hours a day,365 days a year. We also have Deferment Bonds lodge with customs at the international gateways allowing for quicker customs releases.

In order to facilitate quick clearance & delivery the customs duties and import VAT can be disbursed on behalf of import clients. Terms can be arranged for payment of these costs based on the financial creditability of the import and the size regularity of disbursements that are involved.

The staff involved in the customs clearing department all have excellent backgrounds in this specialised field of freight. They are experienced staff who have the ability to interpret the correct tariff codes needed to ensure that excessive customs duties are not paid over to local customs authorities.

In addition to ordinary duty paid shipments, our staff are trained to handle imports which are coming into South Africa for repair and return or for use in exhibitions, trade shows or show business type scenarios. The use of ATA Carnets is recommended for some such cargo and our staff will assist with all customs formalities and export procedures.

Customs entries are prepared via our purpose built computer system. This system is maintained by Shipshape one of the leaders in computerised freight systems used in the freighting industry. Updates to the system are done daily to ensure that all tariff amendments, legislation and the correct rates of exchange are used at the time the entries are framed. In addition to our system Inter-Sped (Pty) Ltd is being used as one of the agents to test direct on line EDI transfer of data from the agents to SA Customs.

The customs broking department can also prepare import estimates prior to shipment, and line by line costings of goods after they have been landed in SA. These are both valuable tools which enable customers to plan orders, and to cost goods at the time of receipting them into their own system.
