India Customs

Stay up to date

Customer movements into India effective 1-January-2023

It is the customers’ responsibility to ensure adherence to India Customs Classification number 104/94 (customs process) by including Tower containers/accessories in their declaration and Bill of Entry (BOE) and providing Tower Cold Chain with subsequent details of the BOE, as our hub has been advised not to accept returning Tower containers until the BOE has been shared.

Please note that the export bond needs to be raised and both details of BOE and re-export bond are to be sent to Tower and our local counterpart (EFL).

All Tower Cold Chain container rental rates will continue to be chargeable to the customer until process has been completed by the customer. Completion of this process is necessary to allow return of the containers.

Failure to provide this information may result in delays in Customs clearance, full payment of duties and taxes or/and Customs penalties. If Tower is unable to recover the containers, customers will be charged for the container loss.

In the event that you require guidance or support in the completion of this process please contact the global customer service team
