International Jewelry Show? Just Carnet It and Go! Savings + Security

Monday, August 9, 2021

The re-emergence of onsite jewelry trade shows is happening worldwide with much more frequency than before.  Though hit hard due to COVID concerns, the industry pivoted to virtual sales and shows.  But for fine jewelry and watches, there is no replacing in-person contact with gorgeous pieces that dazzle and captivate like no other.  There is no substitute for it!  Instore Magazine, a platform for jewelry industry news, reports that 61% of jewelers surveyed say that they will attend a Trade Show in 2021 in person.  Boomerang carnets® has served the jewelry industry for 30+ years.  We know that jewelers and watchmakers want Savings and Security when taking merchandise abroad.

The ATA Carnet is an internationally accepted customs document for temporarily exported merchandise or goods.  It allows cross border movement of those goods import-duty and -tax free into 87+ carnet countries and territories for up to a year.  The ATA Carnet is known as the Merchandise Passport for boomerang freight® and ideal for jewelers traveling abroad with merchandise that will return to the country of origin.  Without it, duties and taxes must be paid to foreign customs or cash must be posted to secure a Temporary Importation Bond (TIB) in each country.  That can add up, especially when you are traveling to more than one country with your goods.  Unlike a TIB, the carnet provides the added security of two, or more, customs services (foreign and domestic) approving the cross-border movement of goods in advance.

Boomerang also provides Competitive Carnet Bond Rates.  Obtaining a competitively priced carnet bond is part of the service at Boomerang.  Representing worldwide insurance organization Lloyd’s of London, Boomerang has received permission from its underwriters for special pricing for jewelers that qualify.

Cyber security protections are top priority!  We understand how crucial it is to protect your sensitive information.  Boomerang is committed to keeping the application process easy and secure.  Our IT professionals designed and developed our online application with security as a top priority.  The application utilizes the most robust encryption, in which plain data (e.g., a password, an e-mail message) is converted into a series of nonsensical characters derived from a mathematical formula.  Our emails are all transferred through secure channels also using encryption.  Over the years, thousands of carnet applications have arrived at Boomerang without a single breach of security. 

We are General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliant.  GDPR, implemented in May 2018, is a regulation in European Union law on data protection and privacy in the European Union and the European Economic Area.  It also addresses the transfer of personal data outside the EU and EEA areas.  None of the customer sensitive data is stored in our systems.

At Boomerang, we have the experience and safeguards in place to protect your information, itinerary, and list of items in your traveling cache.  Your savings, security, and satisfaction are our top considerations.  You can proceed with confidence knowing that any information you provide is safe, secure, and protected with appropriate defenses from cyberattack and breach.  We also provide Advisories specific to Jewelers for any given country where applicable.
