The T1 shipping note is a customs document used in cross-border movement of goods for transporting customs goods from one customs office to another. Basically, the T1 note is used to carry non-EU goods within the EU territory.
The T1 transit procedure is opened by customs at the point of departure. To create the T1 document shipment detail such as name of consignor and consignee, the number of packages, the total weight of the package, number of seals, etc are required. With this information, the goods can be traced seamlessly from the sender to the recipient during the T1 transit procedure. It also ensures the proper clearance of goods.
