The customs inspection is a measure ordered by the customs office and an important part of freight transport. Particular reasons for a customs inspection can include doubts about the customs declaration, surveillance or suspicion of smuggling or trademark violations.
During the customs inspection, your goods are checked by customs, more precisely by a clearance officer, in terms of quantity, quality or stability of value . Both samples (partial inspection) and the complete inventory (full inspection) can be the subject of the inspection. It may also happen that you have to unpack a certain selection of goods, which is often at the expense of them.
