Other transit procedures exist in addition to the common transit procedure, but they are only used in specific cases:
- Carnet ATA
The ATA Carnet is used mainly for temporary importation and exportation. However, it also allows for a transit procedure. This requires you to request additional transit sections for the ATA Carnet from the competent chamber of commerce (according to your company's domicile). Frequent examples of use:
- a tradesman from Germany travelling through Switzerland with his tools to perform work in Italy
- a vehicle manufacturer from Italy transporting an exhibition vehicle to the Palexpo customs office in Geneva for the Geneva Motor Show; thanks to the ATA Carnet with additional transit sections, the vehicle can transit from the border to the Palexpo customs office
- The TIR transit procedure is a purely paper-based solution (more time-consuming and in practice now only used in countries that are not yet connected to the CTP).
Railcontrol. A different procedure applies for rail traffic. Please refer to the information in regulation 16-01. The RailControl program is used for declaring goods in rail freight transport.
