BONDED WAREHOUSING DEMANDS EXPANDABLE FENCING

 

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC)  has seen a sharp rise in demand for its cutting edge expandable fencing to secure bonded warehouse facilities in Australia.

 

A bonded warehouse (also known as a customs warehouse) is typically a secured warehouse facility that is closely supervised by Australian customs authorities,where dutiable imported goods are stored pending their re-export,release or assessment and payment of duties and taxes. The dutiable goods may,while in such storage also be manipulated by cleaning,sorting,repacking or changing their condition by processes that do not equate to manufacturing.The goods may then be re-exported without paying duty or they may be withdrawn for local consumption on payment of the applicable duty.

There are numerous other advantages of such a service including the flexibility to have imported shipments moved quickly from the wharf  for short-term storage,unpacking and deconsolidation and thereby avoiding the high storage charges otherwise applicable if the shipments were to remain indefinitely at the arrival port or air terminal.

Businesses utilize these services knowing their goods are also safe and secure-The holder of the warehouse licence is responsible for the safe custody and accounting of these goods to the satisfaction of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection-generally security personnel monitor these facilities 24 hours a day.Further,CCTV cameras and strict  inventory control systems  have traditionally been used to bolster the level of security on offer.More recently ATDC has seen a rise in demand for its expandable fencing which allows the bonded warehouse to secure the loading dock entries and thereby the perimeter of the facility whilst the other entry doors to these premises are unlocked and open.For further information on ATDC’s expandable fencing see www.trellisdoors.com.au/products/commercial-security/barriers-and-cafe-barriers

Being trackless and expandable,this expandable fencing does not interfere with the  controlled movement of freight trucks  or forklifts into and out of the bonded facility.The free standing expandable fencing is available in standard heights of either 2020mm or 2520mm-it is formidable and strong being manufactured from high tensile steel sections and with multi-point locking options.Running on a series of heavy duty 75mm non marking rubber wheels,the fencing is very easy to operate and has been tested for safety under the relevant OH+S legislation and the Australian Standards for Temporary Fencing and Hoarding.Further compliance testing has been carried out for satisfying the relevant deeming provisions of the BCA for emergency egress where this is required.For further information see article at www.trellisdoors.com.au/our-retractable-security-doors-comply-with-deemed-to-satisfy-provisions-of-the-bca
