External customs transit
In external transit procedure non-community goods can be moved between two points in the customs territory of the EU without having to pay duties and without trade policy measures related to the goods (transit procedure). Non-community goods are transported under customs control. The goods and the documents must be presented at the destination customs point and the goods must be entered into another customs procedure. The transport can only be initiated once a guarantee has been provided at entry or in case the goods forwarding starts from inland territory (T procedure).

Goods forwarding under TIR
