Boomerang Carnets Fosters Growth

Boomerang carnets® has seen successes with companies seeking to expand into international markets by using an international trade tool that promotes business growth—the ATA Carnet.

In 2020, one of the most difficult years in our world economy, Boomerang saw the expansion of a startup drone company grow into a £700K business. They had been using ATA Carnets on and off for five years to demonstrate their unique drone delivery platform in Switzerland and since have expanded to Germany and Japan.

The ATA Carnet optimizes opportunity by levelling the playing field so that a startup can compete with any size enterprise. Companies save the money they would otherwise spend in payment of import-duty and -taxes to demo their products overseas. Over time the savings can add up to hundreds of thousands of pounds that can be used to keep a job, create a job, or increase cash.

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® because everything that goes out returns to the country of origin.

What’s good for trade is good for the world economy. According to Economies Journal,

“International trade boosts the global economy and at the same time can become an important driver of economic growth.”

Trade has been integral to the economic health of the world tracing back millennia via the many ancient trade routes. The idea of temporary trade is also not a new one, “trade samples” were a part of the business trade strategy even then to elicit interest in new goods.

ATA Carnets, as we know them today facilitate the introduction of new goods into fledgling ventures, firming up trade transactions and contracts, and stimulating growth.

They can be used for: Commercial Samples, Professional Equipment, and Goods for Display at Trade Fairs and Exhibitions.
