Bonded warehousing

Ahlers Bonded warehouse

Great for long-term storage and deferring duties until your goods leave the warehouse. Store your goods at our bonded warehouse until there is an increase in demand for the goods, and you do not need to import your goods all at once. In the past 27 years, Ahlers Russia has become the authority on opening the Russian market to foreign companies.

Bonded warehousing: stress-free, safe, and secure long-term solution

At our bonded warehouse, Ahlers helps customers by making sure their goods are in line with local legislation to enter the Russian market, for example by applying the proper labeling. A task that is best performed at the last stage of the supply chain to simplify the production and shipment process. The warehouse under customs control, located in the Gorelovo region in St. Petersburg, is the biggest in the area. It is fully run by Ahlers’ experienced warehousing staff who make sure the site stays fully compliant with customs legislation and local authorities.
