Data Center Deliveries – Some Facts

If your company has taken rack space in a data centre, your company is responsible for the delivery of the equipment, customs clearance and complying with all local import laws, not the data center.


The Issues

1. You’re company has no legal entity in the data centre location.
2. You have no ability to import your equipment in to this territory.

The solution

1. You appoint a company who can act as your legal entity for this purpose.
