Hello Experts, I am having trouble describing the distinction between a machine component and partly completed machinery, particularly when the machine component is a collection of parts at least one of which moves.
As an example, consider a printing press sold to EU which is large and has three major sub-systems, a media pre-treatment module (to prepare the media to accept the ink better), the printing press proper, and a media speed drying module. None of the sub-systems can, nor is intended to, function separately, and there a bunch of miscellaneous parts that are shipped to assembly the units together. The main controller is part of the printing press proper. So, in planning to ship this product to the EU it is not clear to me if I have one machine with three major components shipped in 4 crates that goes through final manufacturing on site at the user location, or (somehow) three partly completed machines and a box of miscellaneous parts. I am leaning towards the former, but I cannot find much discussion of finer strategic points such as how to mark the crates etc.. to ensure smooth Customs clearance. Are any of you aware of any guidance on such large equipment that is shipped in multiple pieces? Of course any advice from the listserv would also be welcome.
