Container Freight Station (CFS) warehouses play a very important part of the Supply Chain.
What is a CFS?
A Container Freight Station is a facility where ocean or air freight can be transferred directly from the destination port or airport. These warehouses can be used as temporary storage for freight before it enters or leaves the country.
When a shipping order is less than a container load, it is often more effective to combine that load in a container with other freight heading to a similar destination. In effect, a CFS warehouse is a facility where freight can be collected, stored and wait to be shipped to the next location.
It is a bonded facility in the sense that the warehouse has been certified by the U.S Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to receive goods directly from the port or airport while still under a customs bond. The freight can be held at the bonded warehouse while Customs clearance is pending.
