Customs Clearance

ICM’s main activities revolve around customs clearance. We offer customs clearance of:

Airfreights
Understanding the urgency of airfreights, we usually deliver your imports within a business day, upon the plane arrival. Similarly, we book your exports and pick them up for them to be sent as soon as possible.

Seafreights
Whether your goods/equipment come in bulk, containerized, on a chartered vessel, or on a rig, we have both the acumen to clear them and the logistics (trucks, forklifts, cranes, etc.) to handle and deliver them. The reverse process is done for exports, in addition to us negotiating the best rates to ship your goods.

Roadfreights
ICM has been providing door-to-door service between Cote d’Ivoire and Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire and Benin, and Ghana and Benin.


Rigs
ICM has extensive experience clearing rigs (whether jack-ups, semi-submersibles, or drillships) and their third-party equipment in/out. The Deep Water Pathfinder, GSF Monitor, T20, Alliance, Sapphire Driller, Olympia, and Eirik Raude are just a few of them that were customs cleared by ICM.


This critical service to our clients is done in the most professional way, combining expertise and celerity to customs clear and transport goods within 48 hours.

Indeed, we have been providing this service for more than 20 years; and have continuously improved our process flow. Thus, using ICM, you will be benefit from:

  • Exoneration from the Cargo Tracking Note (CTN/BSC)
  • Having your goods ready to be delivered within 48 hours
  • Your agent following up on your exonerations letters
  • No fine/penalty (if instructions are followed)
  • Local knowledge; international standards/expertise
  • Opportunity for door-to-door service from/to around the world in collaboration with reputable partners
  • Your agent acting like an advisor to you, thereby anticipating your needs and/or avoiding you unnecessary costs or issues


Note also that we do provide or can make available extra-services such as:

  • Customs escorts
  • Insurance certificates (all imported goods are subject to a local insurance)
  • Dangerous goods or hazardous shipments
  • Logistics operations at night when needed


All of that still done with a focus on safety first and time is of the essence.

But don’t take our words for it, ask around…!
