In the event that the United Kingdom leaves the European Union, and after any implementation period, clearly there will be more friction for businesses supplying goods to other European Union member states from the UK. To avoid additional customs controls and potential double duty payments, traders might want to consider warehousing goods within the EU which will enable goods to be re-delivered with minimal fuss. A number of our clients have already made decisions to establish operations on the mainland of Europe to enable them to import goods directly from outside the EU for re-delivery within the Community without the need for customs controls each time an order is despatched.
ACS has recently opened a new bonded warehouse facility located at Nettetal which is conveniently close to the Dutch border and under 4 hours transit from Rotterdam port with shuttles operating five times a day, six days a week. There is up to 15,000 sqm of space available with the option of high-rack, block or transhipment storage as well as many VAS.
Nettetal is only 50 kms from Duesseldorf and the Rhine, and has direct connections to 3 European road networks. Deliveries within Germany are guaranteed within 24 hours and the rest of the EU within 24-120 hours with daily departures and links to all the major courier and parcel carriers too.
We offer state of the art equipment: a flexible WMS which can plug directly into your company systems, or we can use your own WMS, and links to our own LIMA supply chain management solution as well as our CargoWise operational system are also easy to effect.
