A strong collective

for transit customs declarations

The success story of ZOLL POOL is as simple as it is impressive. It began when legislators in the field of transit procedures for non-Community goods through Community territory demanded a security amounting to the expected import duties incurred up to the conclusion of the procedure.

The condition that sufficient guarantee volumes must be demonstrated for all transit documents places a financial limit on small and medium-sized companies in particular.

Many shipping companies and partners within the sea port transport chain wondered whether the existing customs guarantees would still be adequate in the future to enable import containers from across the world to be cleared in transit reliably and quickly by means of a “T1” transit document.

The ZOLL POOL HAFEN HAMBURG AG put the idea into practice and purchased for its shareholders an exceptionally efficient guarantee for import containers. Consequently, medium-sized companies are finding themselves on equal terms with large, financially strong businesses. Our capacities are almost unlimited and all our shareholders are guaranteed high, consistent quality and support. A service team was put together to execute the idea, and the team excellently fulfils all transit requests from the shareholders in the most important European sea ports.
