What Exactly is a Bonded Warehouse?

Inside of a warehouse

A bonded warehouse is simply a building or secured facility that serves as storage for goods, whether consumable or not. These facilities can be run by governments, like those maintained by customs officials, or by privately-held companies like Bonded Service.

The word “bonded” generally refers to a fund that is available to pay out against claims, like damaged or stolen goods. A bond is essentially insurance and in this case is simply an additional layer of protection for clients.

There are many different kinds of bonded warehouses and many different classifications that these will fit into.
