What is a T1 shipping note?

The T1 shipping note is a customs document used in the cross-border movement of goods for transporting customs goods from one customs office to another. The T1 note is used to carry non-EU goods within the EU. The T1 transit procedure is opened by customs at the point of goods departure. To create a T1 shipping note, information such as shipment detail such as the name of consignor and consignee, the number of packages, the total weight of the package, number of seals, etc are required. Once all this information is gathered, the goods can be traced seamlessly from the sender (manufacturer/store) to the recipient during the T1 transit procedure. As a result, it safeguards the correct actions for smooth clearance of goods.
