Storage and Handling

ISTIM offers an abundance of warehouse services at major ports globally (see locations) and is able to support bonded and nonbonded cargo as all warehouses are located in Foreign Trade Zones or Free Zones. This provides opportunities for duty deferrals and improved cash flow. Our facilities have required security systems including, cameras, door/window contacts, photocell beams and many are located within a fenced area reinforced by 24/7 guard houses.

Our services are supported by experienced staff and warehouse personnel to ensure you receive timely updates on the movement of cargo into and out of our warehouses. You will be notified of any issues that may adversely affect your expectations. Our staff will provide cost effective solutions should it be necessary.

We are very disciplined in all segments of cargo flow implementing “Best Practice” protocols to ensure consistent top-level performance at all locations. Our administration and warehousing operations are additionally supported by a state-of-the-art warehouse management system supporting all aspects of warehousing and accounting functions.

Your cargo can be stored by designated lots, by container or truck load, by stock keeping unit or by another method you may require.

We can support any whole or partial sale/transfer of your cargo by providing release transfer and holding certificates notifying you and your counterparty accordingly as to the details of the transaction.
