ATA Carnet aka The
Mechandise Passport

Boomerang carnets® regularly serve customers from a wide spectrum of industries looking to expand in international markets. They range in size and type from individuals to family businesses, SMEs, not-for profit and service organizations, government agencies, and corporations.  The ATA Carnet helps facilitate the growth, research, and development of those customers by allowing their goods and equipment to travel across borders import-duty and -tax free.  The benefits of ATA Carnets level the playing field by making it easier and more affordable to expand into international markets.  All size entities can benefit from carnet use, not only the “big guys”.  Over the past three months, there was significant usage of ATA Carnets for Natural Sciences and related companies that explore or study the physical world.  We reviewed these customers and found them directly and integrally defined by a link to either the Land, Sea, or Air.

The ATA Carnet is an internationally accepted customs document for temporarily exported merchandise or goods.  It allows cross border movement of those goods import-duty and -tax free into 87+ carnet countries and territories for up to a year.  The ATA Carnet is known as the Merchandise Passport for boomerang freight® and ideal for professional equipment or goods moving in and out of countries.
