Customs Indemnity

FreightFile by Sitpro (“FreightFile”) and Sitpro Ltd (“the company”) act as an information exchange with relation to customs documentation, they are not a customs agent, and do not accept any liability for incorrect submission. It is entirely the responsibility of the shipper or user to ensure the information submitted to the agents via FreightFile, and the customs entries returned to them are correct, and any errors should be highlighted to the agent through the messaging system and rectified by the agent. There may be additional costs for this.

On instructing the agent (via FreightFile) to submit a customs entry, or community transit document you agree to indemnify the agent and FreightFile in respect of all and any liability which may be imposed upon them in respect of the customs entry, or community transit operation, and you undertake to make payment and reimburse any and all expenses related to duties, taxes, levies and other charges whatsoever for which you may become liable as a result of giving such an instruction.

Furthermore, you hereby authorise the instructed customs agent to act as your direct representative for the completion and submission of customs entries. You will remain the principal for all relevant customs issues under the current regulations.

By using FreightFile and their agents you confirm that you will inform the agent if the shipment is licensable or restricted, as referred to in Customs Information Paper (08)02. It is understood that if not notified otherwise the agent will consider any commodities falling under such prohibition and restriction measures to be innocent and declare to customs accordingly. There may be additional costs incurred if licences are required, and this should be discussed with the agent.

By using FreightFile you authorise the company to pass the informations entered into FreightFile to their customs agents, and for those agents to complete the entries on your behalf. FreightFile and the company do not act as agents, and will not accept any liability for any losses resulting from the use of the system, any additional charges for additional work, or alterations that the agent does on your behalf is entirely the responsibility of the user to pay for.

The company charges a commission on all entries made through FreightFile, and these are included in the credit card charges made at time of payment. If the user is working on a credit basis with an agent the agent is primarily responsible for paying the commission to FreightFile, if the agent ceases trading and payment has not been made to them, the commission still remains payable by the user to the company provided the clearance instructions have been followed.

It is the responsibility of the user to seek authorisation from an appropriate person within their company to use Freightfile and abide by these terms and conditions if they are acting on behalf of an organisation. The organisation will be held accountable for the above terms as the user is acting on their behalf.
