Export Consignment

What is an Export Consignment?

An export consignment is defined as the total quantity of goods which an exporter simultaneously exports to the same consignee via the same customs office of export. As of 2016, the export contract with a recipient is no longer based on the country of destination, but on the export contract with a recipient.

The customs regulations for the export procedure (VSF A 0610) defines the export consignment as follows: “Export consignment comprises the goods that an exporter exports to a recipient on the basis of an export contract.”
