ATA Carnet = Savings and Growth

At boomerang carnets® we know there are many benefits of ATA Carnet use but first and foremost are savings and growth.  If you are looking for a tool to grow your company internationally with new customers, ticket buyers, or expanding your brand all while saving money, time and hassle on your temporary exports, an ATA Carnet is your answer.

The ATA Carnet is an internationally accepted customs document for temporarily exported merchandise, goods, or professional equipment.  It allows cross border movement of goods import-duty and -tax free into any of the 87+ carnet countries and territories for up to a year.  Also known as the Merchandise Passport, ATA Carnets are used by many industries in many applications.  The ATA Carnets’ benefits include avoidance of import-duty and -taxes and ease clearing Customs, both foreign and U.S., saving you valuable time.  Carnets also serve as the Registration of Goods with Customs upon re-entry to the U.S. or U.K.

Once you have your carnet, the document allows you to make multiple trips into and out of carnet countries for up to a year.  Using other methods of temporary exportation, companies will be assessed duties, fees, and taxes upon entry into each customs territory which can add considerable cost.  These are a few of the advantages of putting boomerang freight® on an ATA Carnet.  Many companies are already aware of the growth potential for their businesses.  There are many more companies unaware and say they wish they had heard of the ATA Carnet sooner.  For one company, carnet use would have saved them more than half a million dollars/pounds in duty, taxes, and fees that they could have strategically used elsewhere. 

Examples of acceptable carnet merchandise include aircraft, UAVs, artifacts, jewelry, demo equipment, livestock, musical instruments, film equipment, repair/testing tools, research equipment, trade show materials.  Exceptions are consumable items, disposable items, and postal traffic.

In addition to ATA Carnets, Boomerang also specializes in foreign customs duty guarantees including carnet bonds.
