Types of Bonded Warehouses

A customs bonded warehouse, or bonded warehouse, is a secure storage facility that is free from import duties. While in the bonded warehouse, the manipulation of duty-free merchandise is highly regulated. Usually, cargo stored in most types of bonded warehouses cannot be used in any significant manufacturing process, and in some cases is only allowed to be stored for some period of time.

In this post, we are going to explain some types of bonded warehouses:

CFS Bonded Warehouse

A container freight station (CFS) is a facility where ocean or air freight can be transferred directly from the destination port or airport.This is primarily used to de-consolidate inbound consolidated shipments whether arriving via air freight or Container loads. The CFS is also used to bring in in-bond (7512) in-transit freight to be stored. Freight can only be stored within a CFS for up to 10 days. If the freight does not ship out within 10 days Customs will seize the freight.

IBEC Bonded Warehouse

In-Bond Export Consolidation (IBEC) facility is very similar to the above CFS but the freight can store up to 30 days and it’s also on a Customs in-bond 7512 form. This Bonded Warehouse is used to consolidate in-bond freight that’s pending to be exported therefore, they give you 30 days to store it instead of 10 days.

Types of bonded warehouses

Class Three Traditional Bonded Warehouse

This type of Customs Bonded Warehouse requires a formal 7501 Customs entry into the Bonded Warehouse. A Customs power of attorney is needed from the importer to make this formal entry. The formal entry also requires a Customs Bond. Freight within this Bonded Warehouse must be stored at the Customs entry number level and can be stored for up to five years.

Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ)

FTZ is a type of Customs Warehouse that gives you a lot of flexibility. It requires a Customs 214 and tally in form to get the goods entered into the FTZ. The freight within the FTZ can be stored at the SKU level if it is your desire (does not have to store at the entry number level). This freight can be commingled with Domestic freight. Freight within an FTZ can be stored as long as you like without any time limits.

Facts you should know about Cargo Insurance


Cargo insurance is unique compared to other insurance policies. This is because ocean, air, and ground shipments are under a set of laws that limit the liability of carriers.

So how do you better protect your merchandise when it is in transit? Here are some things you should know about cargo insurance and why it’s convenient to add this insurance to your shipments.

1. Accidents occur.

Products shipping is more reliable and more efficient than ever, but there are still numerous reasons goods could be damaged in transit. Investing in cargo insurance can protect you and your business when damage arises.

2. Damaged goods are the shipper or consignee’s obligation.

International shipping laws favor the carrier, limiting carrier liability helps promote trade between nations. So, it is your responsibility what happens to cargo, you can be covered by a cargo insurance policy and when you prepare to ship, make sure your products are packed as securely as possible to minimize the risk of any damage.

3. Purchasing in CIF terms does not mean that you are totally covered.

If you allow the shipper to cover the insurance, they are only required to meet the minimum coverage. Usually, coverage is only from port-to-port. Also, when filing claims you are dealing with a foreign company, and it can be very time-consuming. That´s why acquiring your own Cargo insurance is a piece of mind for you.


3. The underwriting process is fluid.

Many insurance policies are subject to strict underwriting mechanisms, but cargo insurance (depending on the commodities) lacks rigid guidelines on what’s required. Our cargo insurance policies are all-risk coverage and can be tailored to your particular risks.

4. Make sure you understand your policy.

A common misunderstanding when hiring an all-risk insurance policy is to assume that the policy will automatically cover any accident involving your merchandise. This is not necessarily the case. Instead, most all-risk policies state a specific set of situations they do not cover, so be aware of that.

5. You must communicate the nature of your goods.

If you are seeking coverage, you must disclose, commodity, conveyance, merchandise value, and any other material facts that could influence the underwriter in their assessment of the risk. After you provide this information, the insurance company’s decision to accept or decline coverage. The insurance company may also agree to provide coverage but at a higher insurance premium.
