Bonded And Sufferance Warehouse Services

Drinx Logistics offers both bonded warehouse services and sufferance warehouse services for liquor and soda companies in Vancouver, British Columbia. These services benefit companies that are importing alcohol and beverages into Canada for storage or expediting the movement of spirits, wines, beer, and RTDs in and out of the North American marketplace.

Bonded warehouses and sufferance warehouses each fulfill a unique purpose. The right solution will depend on your needs.

Sufferance Warehouse Services

Our sufferance warehouse is fully licensed by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) for the control and short-term storage, transfer, delivery, and examination of in-bond beverages and spirits until they’re released by the CBSA or exported from Canada. Your alcohol and beverages may stay in our sufferance warehouses for up to 40 days.

Bonded Warehouse Services

In contrast to sufferance warehouses, our bonded warehouses services allow companies to place their imported and domestic alcoholic beverages for a longer period of time. Liquor often stay in our bonded warehouse for up to four years. This is contingent on the evidence that you imported the goods on a consignment basis, if the goods serve as inventory, or if they’re going to be exported.

Our alcohol bonded warehouse services provide you with a complete extension of all duties (GST included) while the product remains in the warehouse. Duties are payable only on the portion of the products that enter the Canadian economy.  Your spirits and beverages may undergo the following value-added alterations in a customs bonded warehouse:‚Äč

  • Labeling and Marking
  • Packaging and Repackaging
  • Testing and Separating of Defective Products
  • Cutting, Slitting, Trimming, and Filing
  • Disassembling or Reassembling of goods that have been disassembled for packing, handling, or transportation.
