Customs & Excise

Sometimes aid is sent without due care being given to customs and excise. This can result in border delays, demurrage fees and break of trust. Quality aid presupposes quality preparation.

Global Hand is proactively seeking to address this by developing a country-by-country customs guide. In addition, we are currently researching documentation that will help us develop appropriate standards for Global Hand users.
