Streamline your supply chain

All of our high-quality warehousing and distribution facilities are port-centric, meaning we can quickly store, handle and distribute goods directly from the port, thereby reducing the amount of handling, eliminating road miles and decreasing lead times compared to using inland distribution centres. Our bonded warehousing also reduces the time your goods spend waiting at the port.

Eliminate your inefficiencies

Don’t want to be held up at the port due to import duty and VAT payments? When you use our bonded warehousing, you don’t pay until your cargo leaves our warehouse. As an added bonus, port-centric warehousing and distribution is not just good for your cash flow, it could also help reduce your environmental impact due to the more efficient supply chain.

Don’t get left in the dark

As your goods move quickly from port to destination, we bet you will want to know exactly where they are! We have an industry-leading warehouse and logistics management system that not only ensures a smooth transition through the warehouse but can also interface seamlessly with your systems and give you real-time data on consignments and stock levels.

Partner with our experts

Providing industry-leading warehousing and distribution services is just one aspect of what we do. We have specialists in all areas of third-party warehouse, distribution and logistics services, including customs, and sea, air and road freight, who can work together to provide multi-modal solutions and improve the efficiency of your supply chain.

Frequently asked questions

In case you have any additional questions about our warehousing and distribution services, here is some information you may find useful.

Do you have accreditation relating to warehousing and distribution?

We have BRC Global Standards accreditation, and just recently, our Felixstowe warehouse received the highest rating of “AA”. Our warehouse has held the accreditation, which measures the quality and safety of products during their storage and distribution throughout the supply chain, for ten years. This means we can guarantee that your goods will always be in good hands when you enlist the help of our logistics services.

Where is your warehouse located? What advantages does it provide?

We have facilities in multiple locations, namely Felixstowe, Ipswich, Hull, Liverpool and Heathrow. Because our warehouses are in strategic locations, our team can store and distribute your shipments directly from the port as quickly and efficiently as possible. This means reduced lead times and a more streamlined supply chain for your business.

How can I benefit from your bonded warehousing services?

With the authorisation of HMRC, we operate bonded warehouses under Customs Freight Simplified Procedures (CFSP). By signing up for our bonded warehousing and distribution services, you can gain access to the accelerated removal and release of cargo. You can also enjoy improved cash flow since you only pay import duty and VAT when you remove your cargo from our warehouse, not at the point of entry. For good measure, you also get to enjoy the benefit of efficient stock management and complete product traceability.

Can I keep track of my goods when they are stored in your warehouse?

As part of our warehousing and distribution solutions, we offer complete visibility and control of goods through our revolutionary Warehouse Management System. You will have access to real-time stock level data whenever you need it, allowing you to keep track of your goods and ensure they are managed safely and efficiently. 

Can you deliver my goods to their final point of sale?

We provide a complete range of handling and distribution services to ensure that your transport requirements are fully met. We can deliver your shipments to the final point of sale so you don’t have to deal with charges relating to returning empty containers to the port. This will enable you to minimise your lead times, carbon footprint and freight costs.
