Accompanying documentation for container transports to the CISBased on governmental instructions, freight- and accompanying documents (transit declaration, import customs declaration) are closely examined during border crossings at Malaszewicze/Brest and Zahony/Chop.Every irregularity, implausibility or case of incomplete or missing documentation results in hold-ups and time- and cost intensive extra work.It is therefore very important for exporters to gather information about the import and transfer regulations covering their merchandise and to strictly adhere to them.Please keep in mind that the consignor/freight payer is responsible for compliance with these regulations.We want your transports to continue to reach their destination fast and without complications.To assist you we enclose a checklist for you to verify that the prerequisites for trouble-free transport are given.The information included therein is based on current data available in reference to the requirements imposed by CIS authorities.These requirements may change on short notice.We therefore cannot guarantee that the information provided is up-todate.

To be able to determine the position of your container en route to the CIS at all times, we have developed an ultra-modern tracking system.From the moment the container passes the CIS border, you are provided with position reports of every container you shipped with InterRail– at the interval of your choice. Next to the container number you see the number of the CIS.freight car carrying your container, the number of the SMGS Bill of Lading and the status of your shipment which informs you whether your container is moving trouble-free or whether trans-portation is disrupted. Every interference report is an alarm signal for us. The very moment you receive this report our team is already working on the solution of the problem.
