Taichung Customs has further elaborated on the bonded warehouse, which is designated for bonded goods storage. Goods imported and placed in such a place are temporarily free from duty. Importers can either file declarations paying for the duty or have the bonded goods re-exported within a certain period. This measure could effectively reduce the operating capital, making the most of a company's funds. Moreover, the 24-hours customs clearance service facilitates companies' logistics and enhances national competitiveness. TCC welcomes all inquiries and questions on bonded warehouse business by enterprises from any sector.
