As in any country, Brazil's customs may select containers at random to check whether the actual container matches the paperwork, which could cause delays in customs clearance. Once the customs clearance is complete, we will discuss the delivery schedule with the local contact information you informed us before we proceed with the delivery. For Brasilia, when the shipment arrives at Santos Port, it is shipped to Brasilia after customs clearance.
