Why send and receive excise goods via Seabourne?

  Nieuwe afbeelding (7)      

What are excise goods?
Excise duty is an indirect tax, which is levied on the sale of certain goods. In the Netherlands and Belgium there is excise duty on alcoholic beverages, soft drinks, tobacco and fuels (e.g. petrol excise).

Enter with Seabourne ‘s license.
If you would like to receive excise goods from another EU country, and the excise duty has not been paid in the other country, then the goods have to be dispatched under cover of an e-AD (electronic administrative document). To receive an e-AD  you require a license registered consignor or a authorized warehouse keeper(AGP). Seabourne is a AGP and was one of the first certified courier companies.

This means we can start shipping your excise goods immediately in accordance with custom requirements!

Save time, effort and money
The EMCS (Excise Movement and Control System) is an electronic system that facilitates the exchange of information between operators and customs authorities within the EU. The transport of excise goods between EU Member States must be declared as known.

Using the EMCS, Seabourne can take care of the entire logistic process from factory to the excise warehouse (storage) and onto to your customers. This save you time, effort and money.

All procedures used by Seabourne are approved by the customs. This ensures the safety and accuracy of the transport of your goods.

The advantages
• There’s no need to pay duties, taxes or other charges when the products are located in our warehouse.
• Goods will be delivered much faster when they are sold because they have already been transported into the EU.
• Seabourne can also break down partly of your excise goods as required. You are able to specify how many units must be cleared and delivered.
•You do not need  to inform custom. This will be taken care of by Seabourne, saving you time and effort.

From Volkswagen Caddy to Mercedes-Benz Sprinter: 4 new additions

Nieuwe afbeelding (3)

Where we used to drive our Volkswagen Caddies 15 year ago, we now drive these big guys. Seabourne Group Eindhoven extended its vehicle fleet with two brand-new Mercedes-Benz 316 CDI Sprinter vans and next week two more will be delivered in Nieuw Vennep. These vans will be used for domestic and international shipments as part of our Express and Supply Chain services.

Excellent vans

Due to an ever-increasing client base with more shipments, an extension of our current vehicle fleet was required. We have chosen for two excellent vans in terms of space, comfort and look to increase our reliability even more. The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is the car for goods transport by road: safety for both our drivers and the goods carried is paramount.

The length of the floor space for these vans is 4.3 metres with a loading height of 1.9 metres. They enable the Seabourne Group to load and ship larger shipments even faster.

Magic body control

The cars have the latest gadgets, such as the Intelligent Drive system. Have you seen the Mercedes add with the chickens?

This add explains the Intelligent Drive system beautifully. The chickens keep their heads stable, no matter how you move their bodies. The Mercedes Intelligent Drive system (or ADAPTIVE ESP) ensures road stability and more comfort for the driver. By means of the ADAPTIVE ESP sensors, the side wind assistant recognizes strong gusts of wind and automatically brakes to keep the driver on the road. All our cars are standard equipped with winter tyres, which may come in handy with the snow that is predicted for next week. We also do everything we can to reduce fuel consumption. Unlike the cars we have had before, these vans have a 7-speed transmission, the 7G TRONIC.

10 years of collaboration celebrated

The 10-year anniversary of our collaboration with Biemond & van Wijk in Aalsmeer has resulted in them also supplying these buses.

Our new vans can easily be recognized by the Express and Supply Chain division logos.
