Due to Switzerland's landlocked location, all surface freight shipments will arrive via a European port such as Antwerp, Belgium or Rotterdam, Netherlands. The Swiss destination agent will move the shipment in bond to Switzerland for customs clearance.

Swiss customs officials are very strict about descriptive inventories. Under no circumstances is the description of "Packed By Owner" allowed.
