If you re an avid renovator of the beautiful VW Campers, or fancy a project for the weekends, you ll be looking for a subject to work on. You might currently be looking at availability in the UK. Why not stretch further afield and consider importing a Camper from Australia or New Zealand?
For a start, Australia and New Zealand both drive on the left hand side of the road, so the majority of the Campervans available there will be right-hand drive. The climate in Australasia (i.e. much less rain than here in sunny England!) also is an advantage, creating less damage to the Campervans (we all know rust is a big problem to solve, and expensive too).
A VW Campervan could be transported over to the UK in a number of ways, there is the option of putting it in its own 40 foot container, or it could be rolled on, rolled off (or RORO for short). How you ship the Campervan will depend on its condition and whether it is currently driveable.
Mercator Cargo has excellent freight forwarding partners in Australia and New Zealand, and can arrange for transportation to the dock there, and for the Campervan to be loaded into the container safely, or rolled onto the ship.
If the Camper will transit in a container, there must be less than a quarter tank of fuel, and the battery must be disconnected we can have this arranged for you. If the Campervan will be loaded RORO, then all that needs to be made sure is that there is no other cargo in the van itself.
Upon arrival in the UK, customs clearance and import VAT and duty will need to be arranged. One of our experienced freight forwarders can advise you on levels of duty to be paid, and any other necessaries to clear the Campervan through customs. And finally, we can arrange for the Campervan to be delivered to you so that you can begin your work on it.
So if you re seriously looking at shipping a VW Camper (or any kind of motorhome/caravan) from Australasia, then give us a call to obtain a quote Tel. 02392 756 575. Email: email@example.com

HOUSTON, May 31, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ Hawthorne Global has been providing international shipping and freight forwarding services to its customers for several decades, and it has recently enhanced ties to international shipping connections to improve the overall experience that it provides to its customers.
Passing Through Customs
When shipping goods to international locations, it is necessary to pass through the customs department. Hawthorn Global is one of the few shipping and freight forwarding companies1 ;with established international routes that has a license from the FMC, the Federal Maritime Commission. This license can be used by Hawthorne Global s customers to more easily pass their goods through the customs process in international ports. The company also has a Non Vessel Owner Common Carrier, or NVOCC, license, and this further promotes faster and easier passage of goods through customs.
In addition to having these two important licenses, Hawthorne Global also has established connections in the ports and receiving areas of 77 countries around the globe. This includes having established ties with 105 freight fowarders. Few other freight forwarding companies can make this important claim, and it is a prime indication for customers that there will be someone on-site at the port or other reception area to receive the goods as they arrive by plane, by sea or through another means. Someone will be on-hand to ensure that the goods are received and to direct them through the next leg of their journey to the final destination.
The Right Plan
When a company selects a freight forwarding or international shipping service provider to work with, it is imperative for the company to spend time focusing on the development of a shipping or freight forwarding plan for goods. Because of the incredible infrastructure that Hawthorne Global2 ;has in place around the globe, the company can truly benefit customers who need to ensure timely, affordable delivery of their products. Rather than limit its customers and clients with a handful of freight forwarding locations and ports that customers must use, Hawthorne Global provides its customers with the ability to create a truly customized and beneficial plan for shipping needs.
Hawthorne Global s enhanced ties to international shipping companies and freight forwarding companies can be put to excellent use by all of its clients and customers. These connections and ties will promote easier passage of goods through customs in ports of call and final shipping destinations, and they can also promote easier reception and conveyance of those goods as they arrive in a port and travel to their final destination.
Many companies today are conducting business on an international scale to some degree. They may be importing goods that are used as components in their finished products, or they may rely on imported equipment or other related items from other countries. While many will need to import products or components, many also export their products to other companies. These may be fully finished products that will be sold in foreign markets, or they may be components that are used in assembly workshops or factories in foreign countries. When companies regularly export products as part of their business operations, it is in their best interest to work with a shipping service provider or freight forwarding company for simplified, streamlined processes.
Hawthorne Global has been providing their customers with speedy, efficient shipping solutions since 1959. Now they ve announced enhanced ties to international shipping companies3 that will improve upon the already excellent quality of service they can provide. Those who are interested in learning more about Hawthorne Global and their incredible global connections available in dozens of countries around the globe can contact the company at 866-514-03691.

Deadline: 30 May 2013
Unless an international trader has authorised access to the Customs Handling of Imports and Exports Freight (CHIEF) system, they will be unable to process import (or export) customs declarations. This means that, by necessity, most traders have to rely on third party agents, such as freight forwarders, clearance agents and other registered parties, to correctly declare goods on their behalf.
However, just because the work is completed by an agent, this does not absolve the trader from the responsibility of ensuring that declarations are made correctly. Regardless of who does the work, the importer (or exporter) is solely responsible for whatever happens. The agent only has negligible liability placed on them when something goes wrong. So, what happens when an appointed agent fails to make the right declaration? HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) can, through their audit system, actually identify when a mistake has been made. If this mistake (inadvertent or otherwise) has resulted in a shortfall of tax payments being made to the UK Treasury, then one of the functions of HMRC is to collect any outstanding amounts.
This can have serious implications for an organisation’s profit margin and cash flow.
Consequently, and partially to avoid the above scenario, but also to try and cut down on their workload caused by incorrectly completed entries, HMRC are keen that traders are aware of all declarations made on their behalf. The simplest and least expensive way that traders can do this is by ensuring that for every import and export made by them, they have copies of the corresponding import and export entries (C88) and that these are checked manually by someone in the organisation to ensure that the correct entry has been made.
Please note that this information, plus other accounting paperwork, needs to be kept for certain minimum periods to comply with statutory legal requirements. Most organisations keep records for 6 years, but it should be remembered that, in the event of a criminal investigation, trader’s records dating back 10 years may be used as evidence. Any record kept must be accurate and up to date; legible; readily accessible whether held on paper, computer, microfiche or microfilm and be available for inspection at all reasonable times.
Sometimes, however, traders find that Import and Export Entry declarations are not readily available from their agents, so (for a charge) HMRC can supply most of this information direct to the trader via their Management Support System (MSS). The MSS is an interfacing database with the CHIEF system and contains archived data for all cleared customs declarations for imports and exports. This data, which is collated under an organisation’s EORI number, includes information such as entry dates, commodity codes, Customs Procedure Codes (CPC), values of goods declared and taxes paid, and can be delivered electronically via e-mail (to a nominated person in the organisation) in the format of a downloadable Excel spreadsheet.
There are two things that should be noted about this system. First, not all information available can be released by HMRC, especially items which might compromise HMRC control activities. Secondly, in agreeing to this method of communication, HMRC are not liable to the trader for the security of the information once it has been transmitted via e-mail on the Internet.
If a trader does decide to sign up to this system, then they must do so for a minimum of 12 months. However, it is possible to have a single sample of one month’s import and export data made available without charge, to enable traders to assess whether or not the scheme is of benefit to them. The address to contact about this scheme is
Excise Customs Stamps and Money
10th Floor Central, Alexander House,
21 Victoria Avenue, Southend-on-Sea,
Essex, SS99 1AA
Its also possible to obtain copies of individual entries from the MSS team. The amount of information supplied is limited, which is why it is known as a Partial Entry, but the information supplied is usually the most pertinent. Data is held in the CHIEF MSS Database for 4 years only, so any enquires need to be made within this period. To request a copy, a Partial Entry Request form needs to be completed and sent (along with an original signed letter on business headed paper of the company owning the relevant EORI number) to the MSS Team at the above address. Both these documents must be signed by a responsible person of the business i.e. Owner, CFO, CEO, Partner, Company Secretary or Director.
This form, as well as additional information about the MSS scheme, can be downloaded from the HMRC website. Go to the Import and Export page and scroll down to the bottom to CHIEF. Enter this page and scroll down to the bottom to Management Support System (MSS) trade information.

If you are looking to begin international trade: buying your goods outside of the UK and importing them, there are some terms of delivery which you will agree with your supplier that are important that you understand.
It is generally advised that you use INCOTERMS when buying your goods internationally. INCOTERMS are a set of rules which have been issued by the International Chamber of Commerce. The terms outline both the buyer s and the seller s obligations and risk under given terms of delivery. The precise nature of these terms and their definitions can prevent misunderstandings between the buyer and seller and their obligations.
The following are the main terms used for delivery (there are many others, but generally these are the ones to know about).
EXW Ex Works. The buyer is responsible for the door to door transport costs, destination taxes and duties, and marine insurance. It is the buyer s risk from door to door.
FOB Free on Board. The seller is responsible for charges up to and over the ship s rail (the ship s rail being the point where the container is lifted off the quay and over the side of the ship). It is the seller s risk up to and over the ship s rail.
The buyer is responsible for the shipping costs from the port of departure to the place of delivery, marine insurance from the port of loading and destination duties and taxes.
CFR Cost and Freight. The seller is responsible for the FOB charges and ocean freight up to the named port of destination. It is the seller s risk up to the FOB.
The buyer is responsible for unloading from the ship, duties and taxes, and local delivery to the destination and marine insurance from the FOB.
CIF Cost Insurance Freight. Same as CFR (above), but the seller arranges and pays for the marine insurance up to the buyer s door.
We can offer all levels of service, from arranging every single aspect for you (e.g. door to door delivery, insurance, customs clearance, VAT & Duty payments, and so on), or just one part of your shipment for you, for example the ocean freight.
If this has left you baffled and you re not sure what to do next, then give us a call to discuss your shipment. We d be happy to help you make sense of this and assist you with arranging your import into the UK Tel. 02392 756 575. Email: email@example.com

Colorado driving school owner and clerk arrested for taking bribes for providing documents to obtain driver’s licenses
DENVER The owner of Little Lake Driving Academy in Aurora, Colo., and the driving academy’s clerk, were arraigned in U.S. District Court Wednesday on charges of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, aggravated identity theft, Social Security Fraud and Bribery.
These arrests were announced by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, District of Colorado; U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI); Internal Revenue Service’s Criminal Investigation; and the Colorado Department of Revenue, Motor Vehicle Investigations Unit.
Those arrested were Stuart Bryan King, 52, of Centennial, Colo., owner of Little Lake Driving Academy, and Griselda Trevino De Valenzuela, 42, of Aurora, who is the driving academy’s clerk. A tentative trial date of June 3 has been set.
According to the indictment1, Little Lake Driving Academy, located at 1415 Havana St. in Aurora, Colo., acted as a third-party tester for the State of Colorado’s Department of Revenue, Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV). As a third-party tester, Little Lake administered written and driving examinations on behalf of the State of Colorado in order for an individual to obtain a Colorado Driver’s License. All driving schools must meet specific requirements and comply with Colorado State law to be a third-party tester for the DMV. The company must provide the requisite testing for individuals to obtain a basic operator’s driver’s license and/or instruction permit in the State of Colorado. The defendant, King, owns Little Lake Driving Academy, and is a licensed tester with the State of Colorado. King was authorized to conduct driver education classes as well as certify an applicant’s successful written and driving examinations so they could receive the valid Colorado driving documents.
Co-defendant Griselda Trevino De Valenzuela acted as the secretary/manager of Little Lake Driving Academy. Her responsibilities included informing applicants of the documentation required to obtain a Colorado driver’s license, collecting the documentation from the applicants, translating certain documents from English to Spanish, providing applicants with a study guide, administering the written test to applicants, grading those tests, and collecting money from the applicants. She then gave the money to King.
From August 2009 through November 2012, King and De Valenzuela knowingly devised and participated in a scheme to defraud the Colorado Department of Revenue’s DMV by falsely certifying that applicants for a Colorado driver’s license and instruction permit had successfully completed the required testing. As part of the scheme, the two defendants falsely certified that applicants had taken and passed the written tests. The applicants then presented the certified documents to the DMV and received by mail a State of Colorado driver’s license and/or instruction permit.
As part of the scheme, the defendants charged about $130 to $420 in cash payments from applicants in return for fraudulently issuing passing grades. They are also alleged to have falsified the written test results for applicants who could not speak, read and/or write English adequately, or could not pass the written test for other reasons.
The investigation into King, De Valenzuela and Little Lake Driving Academy revealed that conspirators transported people who could not speak, read or write English from Missouri and other states to Colorado. Those transported to Colorado from Missouri had previously purchased the identities of U.S. citizens and obtained Missouri identification cards in the names of the stolen identities. These individuals, after utilizing the services of Little Lake, turned in their Missouri identification cards to obtain Colorado driver’s licenses and instruction permits. Last year, as part of this same investigation, 20 individuals, who had utilized the services of Little Lake and who turned in Missouri identification cards, were indicted in Colorado for Aggravated Identity Theft. To date, Catarina Alcon, Elias Garcia-Perez, Jose Antonio Rivera, and Candelario Hernandez-Perez have been arrested based on the Aggravated Identity Theft indictments.
As a result of this investigation, the Colorado DMV is working on notifying the affected parties in this case. The DMV is working internally on the procedure and protocol for handling each individual applicant.
“Shutting down these types of illegal operations is an important process in maintaining the integrity of one of the most used forms of identification in the United States the driver’s license,” said Kumar C. Kibble, special agent in charge of HSI Denver. “HSI leads the Document and Benefit Task Force, which includes many other government agencies, to specifically address these threats to national security.”
“The IRS is aggressively pursuing those who steal others’ identities and we will work with our law enforcement partners to bring those to justice who commit such crimes,” said Stephen Boyd, special agent in charge for IRS’s Criminal Investigation, Denver Field Office.
“Little Lake is one of 114 driving schools that provide customers with written and driving testing,” said Michael Dixon, DMV senior director. “These schools provide a valuable service to the citizens of Colorado. It is unfortunate when a tester may be taking advantage of customers, but it is the exception rather than the rule. The DMV audits 100 percent of the driving schools each year.”
King faces one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud. If convicted of this count, he faces not more than 20 years in federal prison, and up to a $250,000 fine. He also faces one count of bribery concerning programs receiving federal funds. If convicted of this count, he faces not more than 10 years in federal prison, and up to a $250,000 fine. He is free on $100,000 bond.
De Valenzuela faces one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud. If convicted of this count, she faces not more than 20 years in federal prison, and up to a $250,000 fine. She faces one count of aggravated identity theft. If convicted of this crime she faces not more than two years imprisonment consecutive to any felony conviction herein, and up to a $250,000 fine. Lastly, she faces one count of Social Security Fraud, which carries a penalty of not more than five years in federal prison and up to a $250,000 fine. She is being held in federal custody with no bond.
This case is being investigated by HSI, the IRS’s Criminal Investigation, and the Colorado Department of Revenue’s Motor Vehicle Investigations Unit.
The defendants are being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph Mackey, District of Colorado.
The charges contained in the Indictment are allegations, and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
Establishing your own organization is surely an exciting opportunity. However once you enter the arena of overseas trade, you are going to end up being facing a lot of issues which could be confusing to some newer import export supervisor.
A lot of beneficial deals and opportunities have been lost since the import export manager didn t have the level of sensitivity to realize lifestyle, customs and organization practices with the countries they were working with. Many of the explanations why a lot of businesses don t succeed within the 1st three years vary from, deficiency of organization, not enough experience in pricing products and services, absence of a detailed organization plan, inappropriate employing tactics, along with failing to match competition.
Once you run and also manage your own global organization, you re in charge of everything. You are going to want to assume control of one s actions, your research, your data, and your judgements.
The field of exporting and importing is a genuine buying and selling game, a single that calls for excellent arbitration expertise, a nose for obtaining the next hot item inside your distinct category, and keen salesmanship. The thought is always to expect a future need and fulfill it. The rule could be the same from India to Silicon Valley: achievement in company operates on the principle of discovering a vacuum and filling it.
Experts agree that to succeed within the wholesale company, an import export manager ought to possess a varied background. Aside from sales abilities, practical, efficient cultural sensitivity abilities are essential for establishing essential relationships, and to handle the activities that go on behind the scenes. For example, warehouse set-up and organization, shipping and receiving, customer service etc. Of course, these individuals and agencies play essential roles within the industry that you should know before you get started.
One from the most important abilities for the import export manager is to know when to outsource a specific task to external experts. The import export company has numerous experts who can help make your management job a lot simpler. Probably the most essential are the customs brokers and the freight forwarders.
Customs brokers are outstanding sources to go to when processing essential documents. They have the knowledge essential to make sure your documentation is accurate and that it has been sent through the appropriate channels to ensure the proper processing of your merchandise, thereby avoiding costly fees and penalties.
Another essential service provider in the industry will be the freight forwarder. Freight forwarders work out the logistics of shipping your goods, making sure your cargo reaches the destinations safely, on time, and within the most cost-effective manner.
These essential individuals will work together to assist you with various countries rules, regulations and documentation. Using them will assist to make your import export supervisor role a lot simpler and a lot much more profitable.
