The dynamic and rapidly evolving panorama of global logistics is causing a transformative shift in the role of warehousing and distribution services. This shift is being driven by the strategic utilization of advanced internal systems, including cutting-edge shipping equipment, tracking solutions, and warehouse management platforms, which are at the forefront of revolutionizing the future of warehousing. 

In today’s global economy, efficient and secure logistics solutions are critical for businesses involved in importing goods into the United States. One vital service in this process is Customs bonded warehousing, a specialized solution that allows companies to store imported goods without immediately paying duties and taxes. Bridgetown, with locations in the Pacific Northwest and St. Louis, is the premier choice for Customs bonded warehousing and transportation services, ensuring your imports are handled with the utmost care and efficiency.


Understanding Customs Bonded Warehousing

Customs bonded warehousing is a service where imported goods are stored under the supervision of the U.S. Customs office. These goods remain in bond until duties and taxes are paid and the goods are formally released. This service provides significant benefits, including deferred payment of duties and the secure storage of goods pending inspection and clearance by Customs officials.

At Bridgetown, we facilitate this process by retrieving your imported goods and transporting them to one of our approved Customs bonded warehouse facilities. Once there, the goods are securely held until they are inspected and electronically approved by the Customs office, ensuring a smooth and expedited process.
