“Clear advice”

”While we focus on delivering the world’s first ‘underground drone’ to grain storage operators and help them Saving Grains, we like to avoid unnecessary bureaucratic complexity putting a stall on our operations, and the Alegrant expert, through a single session, was able to help us understand how to navigate the customs duties landscape during this transition period through very clear language and advice.”

Dr Lorenzo Conti, Founder & Managing Director of Crover

Services FAQ’s

What if I am unsure of the type of expertise we need?

Talk to us! It is extremely common for clients to misdiagnose the source of their problems. So all our collaborations with our clients start with a (free) initial chat. From our side, we want to make sure your question is within our area of expertise. And for you, it will be the opportunity to see if the consultation with us is what you need. Just send us a note to have an informal chat:

I need just one expertise (origin) but in several countries, can you help?

Yes, we can. This is a common request from groups with manufacturing or sourcing in different countries/world regions. Rules of Origin can be obscure and conflicting. In practice, you can deal directly with our in-country experts or we can consolidate the answers for you if you prefer to have a single point of contact. Whatever is easier for you.

Consultation FAQs

Do you provide support for obtaining authorisations or just advice?

It depends on your needs. In some cases, we can simply provide the advice and the client handles the applications for authorisations. For other clients, we provide a full support, we get the authorisations from the authorities and process claims. This is particularly useful for clients dealing in foreign jurisdictions where our local experts involvement provides greater certainty, minimises compliance risk, and speeds up the process as it was the case for a transaction in Nigeria.

We have an urgent request, can you help?

Yes, all Alegrant Services can be adapted to time constraints. Shipments stuck in customs across the world, unexpected request by the authorities, sudden re-routing of cargo for geopolitical reasons or customs inspections are just part of a normal day in international trade, so we are used to operate in emergency situations.
