DST Combitrans opens bonded warehouse in Rekingen
The Swiss logistics service provider DST Combitrans AG, a member of the Indermühle group, has opened an open bonded warehouse (OBW) in its cross-docking hall in Rekingen in canton Aargau (Switzerland). The facility offers intermediate storage possibilities for imported goods, without having to pay tax and duty, for an indefinite period of time.
The OBW is primarily important for the growing on-line trade in furnishings and accessories as the goods are already in Switzerland before the sales campaign begins. Having the items in the country assures rapid delivery should they be ordered. After storage at the OBW, DST Combitrans can carry out the customs formalities on the spot or start transit procedures, should the goods be re-exported from Switzerland.
