Blackthorne Services

Importing and exporting requires your company to have an established business or other type of legal entity in the country of import or export to act as the government-required responsible party in conducting the export or import transactions.

The Importer of Record and Exporter of Record (IOR/EOR) is officially recognised as the official party of an international shipment transaction by said governments.

Shipping IT equipment globally can be an extremely complex process with hardware being highly regulated, which is why you need to use an experienced Importer of Record. At Blackthorne International Transport we can provide the specialist support you need to help ensure quick, efficient and reliable importing and exporting of IT equipment worldwide.

Some of the responsibilities of the IOR or EOR include: filing relevant declarations with local government agencies during import and export, paying all due taxes and duties on import, acquiring the relevant licenses or permits prior to exporting to the destination country.

From international IT networking companies to Telecoms businesses we have helped our customers with all their IT equipment and hardware importing and exporting needs.
