Warehousing and Storage
Naturally, our warehousing facilities provide you with all the normal storage services but in addition, PBS is one of the few companies approved by HM Customs and Excise to operate its own Enhanced Remote Transit Shed. This enables us to store uncleared consignments in our own warehouse facility, arrange Customs clearance at our customer’s convenience and eliminate delays at busy airport cargo sheds.
