Global freight forwarder Dimerco has opened its second bonded warehouse within the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport Free Trade Zone (FTZ).
Dimerco’s new facility is part of a one-stop logistics solution for air and ocean freight, bonded warehousing and trade compliance.
The facility has been opened in response to the increasing number of distribution centres being established in the APAC region to be closer to suppliers.
Dimerco says the solution is primarily aimed at high-tech companies operating in Taiwan – the epicentre of global semiconductor manufacturing.
Dimerco says this new location offers companies a huge cash flow advantage. Supplier inventory entering Taiwan can be stored duty and tax free until the inventory ships out.
For finished goods being manufactured in Taiwan, these can be stored in the bonded warehouse duty and tax free until they are sold and shipped out.
The new bonded warehouse within the Taoyuan International Airport FTZ spans almost 48,000 square-foot and offers customisable shelving options, 10 storage bays, and large floor space to accommodate e-commerce clients with extensive picking and packing operations.
Dimerco is one of the few 3PLs in Taiwan that, by serving as Importer of Record (IOR), can offer a tailored FTZ solution for international customers that do not have local presence.
Dimerco says it can oversee the entire warehousing and shipping process, coordinating everything from trucking and warehousing services to collaborating with logistics partners, streamlining financial transactions, and facilitating information flow between customers and IT teams by integrating with the customer’s WMS (warehouse management system).
By acting as a single point of contact, Dimerco says it allows customers to concentrate on their core competency of product R&D. They can manage warehouse space during peak seasons and adjust it as needed. Dimerco can also perform quality testing before pick and pack, create custom labels with serial numbers and manufacturing dates, and coordinate repalletisation for multiple delivery notes to optimise material flow to the end customer.
Dimerco says its project and IT teams assist clients in setting up their EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) for efficient order transmission, inventory comparison, and streamlined goods received/issued processes, improving transparency in tracking and tracing shipments with couriers such as FedEx and DHL.
A representative from Dimerco’s Central Service Center (CSC) said: “We recognised the growing trend of US-based companies seeking to establish distribution centers in Taiwan to serve the APAC region.
“Leveraging Dimerco’s extensive global network, we were well-positioned to establish a bonded warehouse and utilise our capabilities as a one-stop partner, handling all aspects of consignments from airfreight, ocean freight and warehousing to e-commerce requirements and last-mile custom delivery.”
