External Temporary Storage Facility (ETSF)

Streamline your operation by consigning your European Imports to us on a single document rather than having to have an entry number for every consignment. We can arrange discharge of your T1/Transit document and manifest for clearance in our ETSF whilst offloading any problematical shipments to keep your other freight moving. Standard storage facilities are also available. Adjacent Dover South 24hrs Service station and within a couple of hundred yards of Dover’s Western Dock clearance facility we are open from 7am until 10pm Monday to Saturday – coverage outside these hours is by arrangement.
ETSFs are temporary storage facilities outside or inside the approved area of a seaport or airport where non-Union goods may be stored before being re-exported or placed under a customs procedure. ETSF's are available to customs agents, warehouse keepers, freight forwarders and even transport companies, although in order to apply for approval you must be involved in the movement of goods from outside the EU (non-union).
Our sister company “Port Clearance Solutions” is expected to gain the same approval at our Kettering warehouse within the next few weeks and also offers –
  • International pallet distribution
  • Full and part load logistics
  • Amazon consolidation
  • Export packing
  • Container transport
  • Container devanning/stuffing
