Global freight forwarder Dimerco is adapting to the changing supply chain strategies of major high-tech companies, opening its second bonded warehouse within the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport Free Trade Zone (FTZ) on September 12th, 2023.
In response to the increasing number of distribution centers being established in the APAC region to be closer to suppliers, Dimerco’s new facility is part of a one-stop logistics solution for air and ocean freight, bonded warehousing and trade compliance. The solution is primarily aimed at high-tech companies operating in Taiwan – the epicenter of global semiconductor manufacturing.
Dimerco’s new location offers companies a huge cash flow advantage as supplier inventory entering Taiwan can be stored duty and tax free until the inventory ships out. Finished goods manufactured in Taiwan can be stored in the bonded warehouse duty tax free until they are sold and shipped out.
The new bonded warehouse within the Taoyuan International Airport FTZ spans nearly 48,000 square-foot on the 3rd floor of Building C. It offers customizable shelving options, 10 storage bays, and large floor space with extensive picking and packing operations to accommodate eCommerce clients.
Dimerco is one of the few 3PLs In Taiwan that, as an Importer of Record (IOR), can offer a tailored FTZ solution for international customers that do not have local presence.
Dimerco’s Central Service Center (CSC) commented, “We recognized the growing trend of US-based companies seeking to establish distribution centers in Taiwan to serve the APAC region. Leveraging Dimerco’s extensive global network, we were well-positioned to establish a bonded warehouse and utilize our capabilities as a one-stop partner, handling all aspects of consignments from airfreight, ocean freight and warehousing to eCommerce requirements and last-mile custom delivery.”
Regardless of the customer’s requirements, Dimerco can oversee the entire warehousing and shipping process, coordinating everything from trucking and warehousing services to collaborating with logistics partners, streamlining financial transactions, and facilitating information flow between customers and IT teams by integrating with the customer’s WMS (warehouse management system).
By acting as a single point of contact, Dimerco allows customers to concentrate on their core competency of product R&D, managing warehouse space during peak seasons and adjusting as needed. Dimerco can also perform quality testing before pick and pack, create custom labels with serial numbers and manufacturing dates, and coordinate repalletization for multiple delivery notes to optimize material flow to the end customer.
Dimerco’s experienced project and IT teams assist clients in setting up their EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) for efficient order transmission, inventory comparison, and streamlined goods received/issued processes. This improves transparency in tracking and tracing shipments with couriers like FedEx and DHL.
