Customs Clearance is the process through which goods being imported or exported must pass to comply with the customs regulations of a country. The process involves the submission of necessary documentation, the payment of duties and taxes, and the adherence to any restrictions or requirements imposed by the destination country. Customs Clearance ensures that goods entering or leaving a country meet all legal and regulatory requirements, protecting the interests of the country, its citizens, and the environment.

Example or usage in road freight logistics:
A clothing company in France is importing textiles from India. The company must go through the Customs Clearance process to ensure the shipment complies with French customs regulations. The company hires a Customs Agent to handle the process, submitting the required documentation, paying duties and taxes, and ensuring that any restrictions or requirements are met. Once the shipment clears customs, it is released for delivery to the company's warehouse in France.
