1. CLIENT PLACE ORDER
First of all, the sup­ply chain starts with an order. Your client place the order direct­ly to your com­pa­ny, a copy of the pur­chase order is sent to CAPLINQ in the moment of the pur­chase. There­fore, CAPLINQ begins to plan the ship­ment of goods.

2. CAPLINQ PICK UP GOODS
CAPLINQ pick up goods direct­ly from the fac­to­ry. The sup­pli­er is the own­er of the goods until they reach the cus­tomer. Insur­ance & freight are paid by CAPLINQ.

3. CAPLINQ SHIP GOODS
CAPLINQ pays duty, tax­es and all oth­er charges and acts as lim­it­ed fis­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tive for VAT oblig­a­tions. Hav­ing CAPLINQ as fis­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tive allow goods to be import­ed into the EU with­out pay­ing import VAT. This offers a sig­nif­i­cant liq­uid­i­ty advan­tage.
