Waalhaven Douane Service is the specialised and neutral partner for all customs-related services in The Netherlands.
Customs services are a vital part of container logistics. That is why Waalhaven Douane Service B.V. (WDS) has been founded to take care of all customs related activities for Waalhaven Barge Center and Barge Terminal Born.
All customs services can be provided for the containers discharged or loaded at Waalhaven Barge Center, Barge Terminal Born or any other terminal in the Netherlands.
WDS introduced the bonded warehouse principle for the terminal in combination with the RTO permit, Area of Temporary Storage.
It saves our customers time and money in relation with other terminals in Rotterdam.
Over the last few years WDS has developed itself into a reliable partner for various clients, not only in container logistics, but also in logistics by air- and roadtransport.
