Customs Clearance

Gibraltar is outside the European Customs Union, this is why it is imperative the correct Customs Documentation is used in order to avoid Problems or Major Delays at the Spanish Customs Border.

We have over 25 years experience and expertise on Import / Exports Customs formalities to and from Gibraltar. We operate on both sides of the frontier to enable our Clients and Customers a trouble free and smooth transition.

Storage & Warehousing

At East Gate Ltd. we serve the distribution, storage and warehousing needs for local businesses and home owners. We offer  warehousing facilities both at our New Harbours main Depot and within the Gibraltar International Airport Cargo Facility. Offering our customers convenience, flexibility, and cost-effective service. If your company needs safe, affordable, state-of-the-art storage facilities as well as one of the best pick-up and distribution services — we are here to meet your needs. Our Warehouse is an approved Bonded Warehouse and Enhanced Transit Shed facility under Local Customs Formalities.

An ‘Enhanced Remote Transit Shed’ is an approved place situated outside the appointed area of an approved port/airport where non-Community goods may be held until they are declared to customs for an approved treatment or use. This allows for operators of ‘Groupage’ consignments  to remove the consignment from the Port/Airport/Mail  or Overland Entrance, under arrangements with Customs, to the approved warehouse so that Unloading and Storage  can commence prior to the goods being entered to or cleared by Customs.

This allows for quicker movement of Cargo through the Overland/Port/Airport or Postal  movements and results in the goods being made available to the importer more readily than would otherwise be the case if all consignments had to be cleared at the point of entrance  before they could be moved.

The temporary storage premises must be maintained, secure and in good repair to the satisfaction of HMC (Her Majesty`s Customs). The premises is equipped with suitable facilities for storing, unloading, examining and clearing the goods and for examining the vehicles with a State of the Art 24Hr CCTV Surveillance and Smoke Detectors as is Compulsory for Insurance Purposes.

Cargo Insurance

“Cargo Insurance” is an insurance policy taken up to protect against loss of or damage to your goods while they are being transported. The policy is meant to indemnify you if there is any loss or damage to your cargo. Cargo insurance would cover the goods while they are being transported over sea, air and land (includes parcel post and carryings by courier service). Whenever you are moving goods from one place to another it is advisable to have cargo insurance to cover you against any Damage, Loss or Theft.

PLEASE NOTE : We can only cover goods Properly packed for Export.

There are Certain Commodities we cannot not Insure as the Freight Broker, Eg. Personal Effects  or Used items, this can only be done Directly with our Insurers. Any damages incurred without insurance Coverage would fall under the CMR Terms:

Liabilities of the road carrier
The carrier is liable for loss, damage or delay to the goods between the time they are taken into its charge until the time they are delivered. The acts of the carrier”s servants agents and sub-contractors also fall within its responsibility subject to a few excepted perils which can provide defence to a claim including wrongful act of neglect of the claimant, Instructions of the claimant given otherwise than as the result of the carrier”s own wrongful act or neglect, Inherent vice of the goods and circumstances which could not be avoided and the consequences of which the carrier was unable to prevent.

This is calculated in relation to the value of the goods at the time and place at which they were accepted for carriage, and the value is based either on the commodity or market price, or, where there is no such price, the normal value of similar goods. Most Western European states have ratified a protocol to the CMR introducing compensation limits based on 8.33 SDRs per kilo of gross weight of the goods lost or damaged.

The currency value of the SDR is determined by summing the values in U.S. dollars, based on market exchange rates, of a basket of major currencies (the U.S. dollar, Euro, Japanese yen, pound sterling and the Chinese renminbi). The SDR currency value is calculated daily (except on IMF holidays or whenever the IMF is closed for business) and the valuation basket is reviewed and adjusted every five years.
