The clear benefit of a joint declaration is mostly for the recipient in Russia, who declares his production line, or machine parts, as a whole, so saving significantly on customs duty. Although this doesnt benefit you directly as a commissioning party, its in fact a very important acquisition tool — as not offering this service often leads to loss of assignments.
The advantages and risks of this kind of shipment are particularly evident during transport. What happens if a truck breaks down or encounters trouble during customs clearance in Russia? On-time delivery is jeopardised. Or imagine this: All trucks have arrived at the border to find the receiving firm hasnt taken care of things as promised. Another waiting-time problem! And the more vehicles involved, the more fees will increase fast.
Unfortunately, such logistical aspects are often underestimated, as is the role of an international logistics company — which can take care of so many other facets besides actual transportation.
Discussing such scenarios with your client is clearly important. Because as the commissioner you could end up footing the bill, inevitably leading to conflict with the transporter. They key is to be mindful of this and include your logistical partner early on in your project.
