Controlled in-house Duty Management Bonded storage is available within each of the Colvanbridge Warehouses in Essex.
Bonded warehousing enables the Importer to defer import duty and VAT until a time they wish to either move cargo into free circulation or export outside the EU.
The obvious advantage to this is the cash flow benefits.
Importantly, Bonding allows non-EEC originating replenishment stocks to be shipped in bulk and sited in the UK, giving Clients shorter lead times for replenishment/supply. There is also often an opportunity to receive discounts from Manufacturers as larger orders can be purchased and shipped in bulk. A further benefit is the initial transportation costs where often savings can be made shipping a single large bulk consignment as opposed to several smaller consignments.
Colvanbridge arrangements with HMRC in the UK allow us to store bonded cargo within the same site and area (as free stock) to allow a seamless transition into free stock with minimal time delay between Customs clearance out of Bond, call off and dispatch.
Colvanbridge Ltd can offer Long and short-term storage solutions by utilising our Warehouse Facilities or alternatively one of our carefully selected 3rd party warehouses.
No matter which location goods are held, all information is stored on our bespoke WMS system, controlled from our main site Office, offering reports at any time interval required.
