Fumigation Service in Spain for Exports to Australia and New Zealand

24 August 2020

In line with the latest announcement of Australian and New Zealand governments of temporarily requiring measures to prevent the risk of Brown Marmorated Sting Bug (BSMB), Spain has been categorized as a target risk country. Until May 31st (subject to changes if imposed by the local authorities), some exports heading to the above-mentioned countries are obliged to fulfill fumigation requirements, or cargoes will not be allowed in by local authorities.

In response to that, and to our continually efforts to provide security and effectiveness to your shipments, we are ready to offer the only two prevention methods accepted by the Quarantine department

  • Sulfuryl Fluoride fumigation
  • Specific heat treatment

The main affected cargo include vehicles, ships, machinery, cork, common metals, and stone manufacturers.

As we aim to facilitate, simplify and guarantee security to your shipments with us, we are offering the services of fumigation and inland transport in a combinate service package. An all-in-one service, where you only need to choose what service you prefer and provide the loading details. We will take care of the rest.

When requesting this service on your next bookings, you can use the following keywords

  • Fumigation / Fumigación
  • Fumigation Certificate / Certificado de Fumigación

Please find below the links of the Australian & New Zealand Governments announcement, where you will be able to find more details on the affected goods and countries
