Experience, local knowledge and total support

We will comprehensively consult with you and take responsibility for routine customs formalities, import-export operations and interactions with regulators, state control and security authorities. If you plan to handle importing in-house, we can help you to develop a hands-on action plan for transportation management.

Our consultants use their in-depth local knowledge of the geographical regions and climatic zones of Russia to create efficient delivery schemes that save your business time and money. We'll help you to optimize delivery costs by calculating the most efficient route and best possible mode of transportation according to seasonal weather conditions.
WHAT YOU GET
We will analyze your product and research any applicable preferential customs tariffs, zero duties and/or benefits, then obtain the classification conclusion of the relevant state's customs service on your behalf.
OPTIMIZED BENEFITS
l Performing the function of an Authorized Representative, we will obtain necessary permits from Russian authorities. We will issue a power of attorney for the right to use certificates in accordance with your instructions, giving you the freedom to choose an import partner.
We make sure it is possible to import your goods to EAEU countries, consider applicable restrictions and sanctions, determine importation requirements and verify and identify Harmonized System (HS) codes.
VIABLE, LEGALLY COMPLIANT IMPORTS
If you do not have a legal entity or partner leading your foreign trade, we can act as the first buyer. We will deliver goods to their destination, perform all import formalities and sell the goods strictly according to your instructions.
INITIAL IMPORT SERVICES (DDP)
We can arrange the delivery of goods from abroad and across the EAEU, and will perform customs clearance on behalf of your recipient. When your goods cross borders, we will carry out customs clearance, using either your digital signature or our own digital signature.
SIMPLIFIED
DELIVERY & CUSTOMS
We will prepare and submit reports to state authorities detailing the payment of eco-fees, check that the characteristics of your goods comply with technical regulations, and complete statistical reporting forms on the movement of your goods within the EAEU.

SUCCESS STORIES
Delivery to Siberia
A client recently wanted to make a delivery to Siberia and thought it could only be achieved by air. We advised replacing air transportation with road delivery on part of the route - an option that is only accessible in winter, when the ground freezes and ice roads open for cargo transportation. This resulted in the client paying 3 times less in transportation costs for that section of the route.
Perfume exporter under pressure
A company exporting perfume products to Russia ended their relationship with their distribution partner, who in turn would not allow another distributor to use goods certificates that had been issued for the exporter. Acting as an Authorized Representative, we urgently issued all necessary permits for the client, ensuring that there was no break in supplies to Russia.
3x less costs in challenging conditions
Seamless transition guarantees uninterrupted exports
WHY SCHNEIDER GROUP
FLEXIBLE TURNKEY SOLUTIONS
We tailor turnkey solutions to each customer's needs and will work with you on a long-term basis as a trusted partner. Our flexible approach enables you to choose which operations you wish to manage internally, and which you would prefer our team of experienced professionals to handle.
ADDITIONAL SERVICES
As well as import-export, customs clearance and certification services, we provide a full range of optional additional services, such as foreign contracts, supply chain analysis and obligatory digital labeling of imported goods according to Russian legislative requirements.
EASY START
Because goods can only be imported into Russia and other EAEU countries by a local legal entity, foreign companies usually invest in creating a local entity or find a local partner/distributor. Our DDP solution offers an alternative, enabling you to start exporting more easily, flexibly and affordably. SCHNEIDER GROUP becomes the official importer of your goods.
RISK REDUCTION
SCHNEIDER GROUP spares your business the bureaucratic and logistical headaches that can slow your progress in entering or expanding into EAEU markets. Outsourcing eliminates the risk of supply disruption when a responsible employee departs the business, and minimizes the risk of violations related to interactions with state control bodies.
