Customs clearance, exemption

1. TT-Line is not authorized or obliged to declare any goods to the customs authorities (see Art. 139 et seq UCC). The presentation
obligation is the sole responsibility of the shipper, who has to take care of it.
2. TT-Line cannot be charged with opening / terminating customs transit procedures.
3. The shipper exempts TT-Line internally from any claims of third parties (in particular the customs and tax authorities) in
connection with customs clearance.


Loading units must have a sufficient number of lashing eyes suitable for carriage by sea!

It is basically ordered by the maritime authority that the captain can decide not to transport loading units without lashing points.

TT-Line only ships units with lashing points.This also applies to the vehicles without dangerous goods.  It is thus possible to secure the cargo units even in severe weather conditions and to optimize the safety on board.

If you have any further questions, please contact our booking department for further information.
