If you are exporting goods from Sweden you must always declare the goods to Swedish Customs
You can not send goods out of Sweden before Swedish Customs has given its permission. As an exporter you are required to notify the Swedish authorities via a customs clearance - also called a declaration. Swedish Customs controls the declaration via a customs clearance, then you can send the goods out of the country. Customs clearance is conducted in Swedish Customs’ own clearance system, TDS.

- High goods value
