Customs declarations should be completely transparent and adhere to customs regulations for your goods to pass the borders of their destination country. So, we recommend consulting a global freight forwarding provider to ensure your goods are approved so your business can function optimally.

Certain foods, including fruits, vegetables, and nuts, may attract insects commonly found in their country of origin, which can be incredibly detrimental to the environment and farming in their destination country. So, Port Health regulations are in operation to ensure no potentially dangerous foods are transported to and sold overseas. Here at Boast International, our global freight forwarding service can include the assessment of your consumable goods to ensure Port Health adherence and approval at customs. 
There are four types of CHED, depending on the type of goods you intend to import or export. Correctly completing a CHED and ensuring the approval of your products at customs clearance can be tricky to navigate. So, choose Boast International as your global freight forwarding provider. We will assist you every step of the way with completing all necessary documentation for the international import and export of goods and keep your business moving efficiently.
