Bonded Warehousing

Bowker’s customs bonded warehouses, approved by HM Revenue & Customs, allow us to store imported goods whilst deferring the charges of Duty and VAT until the goods are required. Storing ‘under bond’ can considerably improve cash flow for businesses importing good from outside the UK.

Our bonded warehouse operations have direct links to HMRC and are supported by Bowker’s state-of-the-art warehouse management system which provides full stock visibility including goods under bond and in free circulation.

In total, Bowker have over 1,000,000 ft² of warehousing throughout the UK. Services include bonded warehousing, fulfilment services, ecommerce logistics, sampling and many more added value services.

Each of Bowker’s seven distribution centres are fully equipped with the latest racking and handling equipment. Sites are managed by teams of experts, supported by industry leading technology meaning you can store and distribute your goods with confidence.
