import and transport of heavy equipment
Although it is possible to carry your paramotors as normal luggages with the full-serviced airlines, some team may prefer to use other means of transport to carry the heavy equipment such as PL2 trikes.
It is recommended that the team wishing to send their equipment with Sea-freight or Air-freight applies for an ATA Carnet (see https://www.atacarnet.com/what-carnet) from their home country to avoid paying the import duty. RASAT should be designated as the consignee of the shipment. Failure to obtain the ATA Carnet will result in a refusal in receiving the cargos.
Door-to-Door by sea freight
If you choose to use a door-to-door service, your courier company will take care of the custom clearance once the cargo arrives in Thailand and have the cargo delivered to the designated warehouse. RASAT will be your consignee. Its address can be found below.
In this case, ATA Carnet is still necessary to be exempted from paying import duty. Small fees will be charged to keep the cargo at the warehouse. Contact us and give the details about your shipping company so that we can arrange with them how to access the warehouse.
