Managed Customs Services

Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) Services

Each country has its own sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) systems and processes for the import of agrifood products. Ensure your consignments pass through customs without delay.

Don’t get stuck at the border

Sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) measures are designed to protect the health of human, animal, and plant life, and are therefore strictly controlled by customs authorities. Documentary and physical checks are often required by border control and consignments that do not comply with the measures agreed upon between countries may be delayed or turned away. Don’t take that risk—have C4T manage your health entry documents for you.
