Destock SAS is a well-established warehouse and distribution business and customs clearance specialist based in Dunkirk, just 30 miles from Calais. AMCO has 30,000 square feet of bonded warehouse with 10 high dock levellers. This distribution and warehouse facility features state of the art management systems and benefits from exceptional travel networks, whilst handling non-perishable and perishable stock with access to chilled storage and distribution.

With immediate effect, AMCO can move export goods under bond from anywhere in the UK to France and then once cleared in France, move the goods onwards into the EU released for free distribution. AMCO Destock as the importer, ensures all the applicable supporting customs documentation is in order, after making sure there are no restrictions and prohibitions concerning the goods in the shipment, which can be mixed and the Customs Authority then releases the goods into free circulation.

The purpose of the release for free circulation is to fulfil all import formalities so that the goods can be sold into the EU market like any product made in the EU. Release for free circulation thus confers on non-EU goods the status of EU goods.

In addition, Destock have a manned office in AMCO Park (Redditch), where they are managing customs clearances into the UK from the EU on behalf of their customers.

AMCO have already secured a contract with Nortek Global HVAC, managing the movement of Reznor heating units coming in from Mexico to Dunkirk, consolidating all their European products and then delivering the units under free circulation across the EU as well as providing customer support with 24-hour delivery of spare parts.

This resourcefulness speeds up deliveries across the EU and negates individual clearances as the goods are cleared straight into the EU. This latest part of AMCO’s international storage, logistics and fulfilment network adds value, reduces paperwork and prevents bottlenecks.

Paul Andrews AMCO Sales Director comments. “Having now formalised our partnership with Destock in Dunkirk, and with AM-Trans Logistics in Poland, along with groupage from our Hungarian hub, we now believe we have a fantastic proposition to support customers directly across the EU and the UK. We have increased our European transport fleet and have recently taken delivery of a fleet of new vans, including sleepers and mega trailers, which will operate out of Wroclaw.

He added. “In addition to this extension of AMCO’s existing Hungarian and Polish storage and logistics, AMCO can also now offer fulfilment and relabelling using their Destock partner’s existing resources, ideal in these times of increased online shopping and retailing”.

Destock SAS is a 100% subsidiary of HDP (Holding Desmet Pascal and was created in 1985 bringing together logistics activities at the Dunkirk 59640 (Petite-Synthe), Le Havre (76600), Marseille (13230) and Antwerp (Belgium) sites.
