Bonded and Sufferance Warehouse Services in Vancouver

18 Wheels Warehousing & Trucking offers bonded and sufferance warehouse services in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, which benefits firms that are importing goods into Canada for storage or expediting the movement of goods in and out of the North American marketplace.

Though similar, there is an important difference between bonded warehouses and sufferance warehouses. Each fulfills a unique purpose, depending on your needs.

Sufferance Warehouse Services

Our sufferance warehouse is fully licensed by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) for the control, short-term storage, transfer, delivery, and examination of in-bond goods until they’re released by the CBSA or exported from Canada. Your goods may stay in our sufferance warehouses for up to 40 days.

Bonded Warehouse Services

In contrast to sufferance warehouses, custom bonded warehouses allow companies to place their imported and domestic goods in our warehouse for up to four years. This is contingent on the evidence that you imported the goods on a consignment basis, if the goods serve as inventory, or if they’re going to be exported. Our facility provides you with a complete extension of all duties (GST included) while the goods remain in the warehouse. Duties are payable only on the portion of the products that enter the Canadian economy.  Your products may undergo the following value-added alterations in a customs bonded warehouse:‚Äč

  • Labeling and Marking
  • Packaging and Repackaging
  • Testing and Separating of Defective Products
  • Diluting, Cutting, Slitting, Trimming, and Filing
  • Disassembling or Reassembling of goods which have been disassembled for packing, handling, or transportation.
