Bonded Warehouses In The UK

We receive many calls and enquiries to our office here at Whichwarehouse in respect of how to find a list of warehouses in the UK that offer Customs Bonded storage & warehousing services. As you may well be aware, no such list exists in the public domain. Specialised warehousing in the UK is not as widely advertised as ambient and temperature controlled facilities and therefore contact details are hard to find when it comes to a company requiring bonded storage solutions. Bonded Warehouses In The UK[1]

That s where Whichwarehouse can assist. We have a small number of third party logistics[2] providers in the UK covering various locations who as well as offering ambient and temperature controlled warehouse facilities, can also provide Customs Bonded storage and warehousing logistics services.

HMRC Bonded warehouses

If you import expensive goods into the UK such as electrical items or alcohol you might wish to defer the payment of duty and VAT until you sell the goods. There are specific warehouses available throughout the UK (predominantly located and found near major UK ports) that can assist you with this aspect of your business. This option allows the importer to pass on the cost to their customers at the point of sale (P.O.S) rather than having a large outlay at the time of import. Another reason a company might be seeking a bonded warehouse is if the goods are being imported and then re-exported from the UK where duty or VAT may not be applicable. Bonded warehouses must be approved by HMRC[3] in order to store imported goods or goods that are to be re-exported from the UK. We strongly advise all customers to speak to HMRC if you are looking into wet or dry bonded warehousing as they will be able to provide you with up-to-date information to ensure you have all the facts. The paperwork involved with the procedures and regulations that need to be adhered to can take up to 6 weeks, or more, to process and therefore it is recommended that you put in your applications as soon as possible. This is especially necessary when importing alcohol as companies importing certain alcoholic goods will require a WOWGR[4] licence (Warehousekeepers and Owners of Warehoused Goods Regulations (UK). When filing your paperwork with HMRC you will need to provide details of the warehouse you intend to store your goods in. Therefore again, it is vital that you look into this in plenty of time before you import the goods as you will need all arrangements in place before you can bring the goods to the UK.

Goodwill visit to Merseyside

[ March 11, 2016 // [1] ]

Shipping Minister Robert Goodwill visited Peel Ports Liverpool2 development on 10 March ahead of the container terminal s opening later this year.
Marine trials are due to begin later this month, with other elements of the build coming online throughout the second quarter of 2016.
The minister said: Merseyside has a rich maritime history and the future is looking bright thanks to major projects such as the Maritime Knowledge Hub and the deep water container terminal Liverpool2 at the Port of Liverpool. The Government will continue to offer its full support to the maritime industry, a sector which is vitally important to the UK economy.
Speaking after the Minister s visit to Liverpool2, Gary Hodgson, Chief Operating Officer at Peel Ports, said: It was an honour to host the minister and to show him how construction is progressing at Liverpool2. We very much welcome his interest in how developments at and around the Port of Liverpool are attracting strong backing from cargo owners who are increasingly looking to the North-West gateway as a more efficient route to market.
The Liverpool2 development is part of a 650m investment by Peel Ports in the region and builds on a previous 125m investment in the National Import Centre at Port Salford, the UK s first tri-modal inland port facility and national distribution park.
Later during his visit to Liverpool the Minister formally opened the first phase of the new Maritime Knowledge Hub in Wirral. Operated jointly by sector development organisation Mersey Maritime and Liverpool John Moores University, the new facility will be a global centre of excellence within the UK, generating knowledge-led growth and innovation.
Targeting an increased share of a global maritime industries market worth more than 3000 billion, the Hub will create a focal point for the Liverpool city region s strengths and will ultimately include serviced business start-up space and support, an offshore survival centre and marine simulation centre, and a state-of-the-art facility to help manufacturers design, test and build products or services.
Robert Goodwill said: This partnership between private, public and academic organisations is key to ensuring that our next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs are ready to succeed.

Major transport route to Liverpool city centre to close for six months …

A major transport route into Liverpool city centre will be closed for at least six months. Great Howard Street, used by motorists who approach the city centre from places such as Litherland, Southport, Bootle and Crosby will close in May. Roadworks are expected to cause sever distruption to motorists with the work expected to last for at least six months.

Liverpool council has said it would do everything it could to minimise disruption and sign post diversions. The 32m project, paid by Department of Transport (DfT) funding is aiming to improve links between the city centre and the newly expanded Port of Liverpool. The council also said the works include making Great Howard Street a dual carriageway and replacing a bridge on the road which crosses a disused rail line.

The replacement of the bridge alone will cost 9.7m. Local businesses fear that they will be hit badly by the closure and they will lose out on passing trade. The reason for the bridge being re-built is so that the disused rail line can be used to access the port via freight trains.

Liverpool council cabinet approved the plans in January saying it is a a vital route for freight from the new Liverpool 2 deep water port as well as the proposed 5bn pound Liverpool Waters scheme by developer Peel.
