#MCS – #temporary storage

Temporary storage warehouse-another milestone in the pursuit of the goal.
Contract logistics consists of a number of elements creating complementarity of services.
I am pleased to inform you that the Chamber of treasury administration in Białystok has given us permission to operate a temporary storage warehouse. This is undoubtedly one of the key elements that allows us to” cultivate ” contract logistics in an even better way.
Goods entering the EU at each border point are subject to the transit procedure (T1, tir, etc.). For various reasons m.in. through suspension of payment of customs duties, customs, excise, VAT, lack of documents, transhipment, further resale, the goods do not always have to be declared for final clearance (marketing authorization). MCS this is part of a process that brings with it many opportunities in building the competitive advantage of our customers.
What are the benefits of implementing storage as part of the transport process:
1. Customs duties suspended.
We do not have to pay customs duties at the time of arrival of the cargo. We are free to circulate these funds until the need to release the goods on the market. In the case of further export, payment of the duty shall be released and transferred to the consignee.
2. Another carrier.
If they are able to tranship, they may tranship to another means of transport. This option has its economic justification in several cases:
* the carrier who receives the cargo does not need to have permits for CIS countries. He reloads it with us and gives it to a licensed carrier. Loading goods from Poland eliminates the need to have permits for third countries and the close distance from the border allows you to save on transportation and each party is satisfied,
* scheduling the transhipment at the end of the driver’s work to another (vacated) means of transport ensures continuity of deliveries.
* possibility of customs clearance in export-having a place of recognized and temporary storage warehouse, you can make customs clearance on the spot. No need to leave and wait in line at the customs house. Undoubtedly, it speeds up and streamlines the whole process. Documents are agreed in advance, and the waiting time of the carrier is reduced to a minimum. Transport planning based on these possibilities takes on a different dimension. A solid calculation of the costs, as well as the benefits of saving time and your own commitment, should give you an answer as to whether it is worth using a storage service.
The way I act is the result of many years of experience and meticulous observations of the processes occurring on the market. From where I am today, I can see all the way that I have come here and with a clear conscience I can offer responsible cooperation. Behind me is not only experience, but also the desire to improve and offer ambitious projects that will solve their problems for my partners and bring me professional satisfaction.


By the decision of the Chamber of Treasury administration in Białystok, we received a permit for a recognized place to present goods to customs
For goods for further customs purposes which are in the process of transport and not intended for storage. Customs procedures may be carried out on the means of transport. For this purpose, we have created and made available a recognized place (designated by the customs authorities).
Thanks to this solution, the customer (owner, carrier or customs agency) can make a customs declaration on import or export in the so-called simplified procedure on the spot. A recognised location means that it is not necessary for cars with cargo to enter the customs territory.
The infrastructure provided to our clients (access to cameras and a secure place) may result in customs clearance not being limited by the time of the customs office. This allows the customs agencies to carry out the procedures freely and the time is up to them.
These actions have a very beneficial effect on the time of customs clearance itself. The car does not have to spend long hours in the queue at customs. Made checks can be carried out impersonally which eliminates the need to wait for documents.
The next step in achieving the goals in # Centrum_logisticnym_jmp achieved !
#Logistics_contract has reached another dimension.

“There’s a sandpaper in here for now, but it’s gonna be…”

Our goal is to build contract logistics from the ground up.
We carefully observe the environment in order to provide our services in an even more perfect way.
Each of our projects is dictated by the fact that our services are timeless and ahead of solutions already adopted by others.
Another decision has been made….
Our offer will soon gain new services and our customers a competitive advantage.

10 basic principles of good food storage.

I think that everyone should know the rules of food storage, and here is their Decalogue.
The certificate of entry in the register of establishments subject to official control of the state sanitary inspection bodies is the basis, without it there is no question of storing food products. After obtaining the entry, we begin to act:
1. Check the delivery. Always check the quality of products and packaging when delivering goods.
Means of transport can affect the quality of foodstuffs, which is why it is so important that they are kept in good technical and hygienic condition, preventing contamination and allowing the proper health quality of the transported products to be maintained. They must have a cargo area adapted to the type of foodstuffs transported, and a structure allowing easy maintenance of cleanliness and order and disinfection.
The person receiving the product should always check the condition of the goods received and refuse to accept them if the goods do not meet the relevant standards.
Before accepting food for sale or food storage warehouse, the recipient should check:
– the conditions of transport, including the cleanliness of the means of transport and packaging, the time of transport and other conditions affecting the health of the foodstuffs transported and the manner of loading to prevent contamination,
– the documentation relating to the foodstuffs, including origin and traceability, producer, date of manufacture, quantity and Lot number,
– bulk and individual packaging, in particular whether there are foreign odors, damage, dampness, packaging bombing, absence of pests, etc.,
– the labelling of foodstuffs, and in particular the date of shelf-life or the date of minimum durability, legibility and durability of the labelling.
2. Cold and dry. Keep your drinks, juices and water in a clean, cool and dry place. Do not allow products to overheat or freeze, or store them directly near heat sources (e.g. radiators).
Storage in a food storage facility at both too high and too low temperatures can affect product quality, causing loss of carbon dioxide in carbonated PET bottles, change the taste of beverages, juices and waters, precipitate or cause damage to packaging.
The recommended storage temperature for beverages, juices and water is 5-25oC. However, if the finished product specification states otherwise, the manufacturer’s recommendations shall be the overriding guidelines for the storage and storage of the product. Protect the product from freezing. A product that has been frozen cannot be sold.
It is important to ensure adequate air circulation, which will prevent excessive temperatures, humidity and pollination in the warehouse and remove contaminated air and possible odors from some finished products. Ventilation openings shall be covered with nets or other insect screens.
Storage facilities shall be equipped with devices for monitoring and recording temperature and humidity. It is recommended that the monitoring device be placed in the storage area of the products most sensitive to these factors. Monitoring devices should be placed in such a way that they can monitor the storage conditions of products depending on the storage height (in the case of high storage racks, the conditions at the ground may differ from those at the ceiling). These devices should be calibrated regularly and the readings documented.
If recharging of forklift batteries is carried out in a food storage warehouse, it must be carried out away from the storage location, in a designated location that meets all health and safety requirements.
3. Avoid sunlight. Keep drinks, juices and water out of direct sunlight.
The finished product must not be stored in places exposed to direct sunlight. If there are windows in the roof or walls of the warehouse directly above or next to stored drinks, juices and water, they should be protected from sunlight, e.g. by the use of a film with a UV filter.
Exposure to sunlight on foodstuffs, including beverages, juices and water, can lead to adverse changes in the taste, smell and appearance of products.
4. Keep the interval, not “on the floor”. Do not store the product directly on the floor. Keep your distance from the wall.
In warehouses, it is recommended to maintain a distance of about 50 cm between the walls and the rows of pallets or racks in order to maintain cleanliness and control the presence of rodents. A strip of floor with a width of about 50 cm adjacent to the walls, e.g. painted with epoxy paint with high gloss, allows easy control of the cleanliness and effectiveness of the insecticides used.
In the case of storage on pallets, the product must be stored on pallets clean and undamaged, preferably in an orderly manner.
It is good practice to arrange the products in accordance with an up-to-date warehouse plan showing the storage areas with a description of the destination, the roads of communication, the evacuation routes, the places of collection and storage of waste, the places of stopping and loading of forklifts.
Safety precautions must always be observed. Stored materials shall not obstruct or obstruct roads, roads or emergency exits.
5. Groceries separately-avoid the neighborhood of intense odors.
Drinks, juices and water-mainly in PET packaging-easily absorb foreign smells. This can cause organoleptic changes.
Beverages, juices and waters must be stored and displayed on sale away from products with an intense smell, in particular:
– chemical paints, phenolic derivatives, organic solvents, disinfectants, household chemicals and other compounds with a strong odor,
– animal feed,
– other foods, if they have an intense smell, e.g. fish, garlic.
Chemical agents and measures taken to ensure the cleanliness of storage facilities should be applied in such a way that they do not adversely affect the quality of food products stored. For example, the use of organic solvents in storage areas is unacceptable, as the contact of many solvents with PET bottles containing beverages, juices and water causes a distinct change in their odour.
Cleaning chemicals should only be stored in a properly secured room for that purpose, in packages marked visibly and allowing the identification of those substances, in accordance with separate rules. The dispensing and use of such substances should be documented and supervised by an authorised person. In a food storage facility, places should be allocated for the storage of equipment for keeping the premises and equipment clean in an amount adapted to the type and function of the premises and a supply of cleaning and disinfectants with appropriate certificates.
It is necessary to pay attention to the fungicides used for the maintenance of pallets, their intense odor very often penetrates into drinks, causing loss of quality and contamination of the product.
When repacking products, it is recommended to use a spacer between the pallet and the first layer. This protects the products from direct contact with the pallet and helps to evenly distribute the weight of the load.
In order to eliminate the possibility of contamination of beverages, juices and water by exhaust fumes, it is recommended not to use diesel combustion forklifts unless they are equipped with a soot filter.
6. Rotate the products. Use the fefo “first expires-first goes out” rule. Put the products in storage and on the shelf according to this rule.
The shorter the storage time, the lower the possibility of deterioration of the product under the influence of environmental factors. The basis of good storage practices is compliance with the FEFO (first expire – first out) rule – according to which the product with the shortest shelf life is always released from the warehouse in the first place. This rule should also be maintained on the store shelf, i.e. the oldest product should be placed at the front of the shelf.
Both in the warehouse and at the point of sale, the conditions of storage of foodstuffs, their quality and rotation of goods should be checked on an ongoing basis, so as not to allow them to expire and spoil.
7. Stick to your deadlines. Remove food items from the point of sale as soon as their “shelf life” or “shelf life” is exceeded.
Foodstuffs shall bear the date of minimum durability or shelf life. Foods placed on the market bearing an expiration date preceded by the words ‘to be consumed by:’ or a date of minimum durability preceded by the words ‘ preferably consumed before…”or” is best consumed before the end…’, may be on sale until the end of the day indicated after the word referring to that date or time limit; after that date the food may not be on the market.

What is contract logistics?

There are many complicated definitions of this business model, but in short, contract logistics is simply based on outsourcing the day-to-day logistics to an external operator.

As part of the service, we offer a wide range of activities-from acceptance of goods, through carrying out work related to assembly, packaging, to sending products to an intermediary or final customer.

Contract logistics is sometimes used by manufacturing companies, but also by stores (also from the e-commerce sector).

Is it worth using contract logistics?

It is difficult to say whether contract logistics is the ideal solution for any business, but it brings with it a number of advantages that can convince entrepreneurs to outsource logistics. How can we benefit from this?

First of all, when outsourcing logistics to an external company (such as JMP logistics), we receive a comprehensive service. We get the knowledge and experience of specialists who have their own warehouse space, adapted to the needs of specific products. The customer does not need to invest in maintaining its own warehouse and expanding the infrastructure for storage and management of goods in the warehouse. Proper security, placement on the shelves, as well as subsequent assembly, shipping, and even handling returns are on our side.

Contract logistics-JMP logistics has not only a place, but also a trained team that works efficiently and quickly to carry out all tasks related to the maintenance of products in the warehouse. Our employees are also equipped with the right equipment, which significantly improves daily work, helps to eliminate bottlenecks and eliminate problematic downtime. Thanks to this, all orders are executed on time, and the number of possible errors is much less.

Professional tools and computer software (WMS) affect the speed of operation, and also allows you to significantly optimize the cost and time of execution of individual orders.

Cooperation with us therefore allows for a real reduction in the cost of storage, infrastructure and operation of warehouses, while at the same time reducing the process of assembling and shipping products to customers.

Contract logistics – JMP Logistics

In addition to the storage itself, the service includes many additional activities related to the handling of goods, including:

  • cross-docking (transshipments),
  • completion of orders,
  • pre-packing and co-packing,
  • supply chain design and planning,
  • transport and distribution
  • support for returns and complaints,
  • inventory management.

Companies that opt for this type of activity receive a comprehensive service, relieving them of all responsibility for their extensive logistics and warehousing activities. This allows you to focus on production or, in the case of a store, on marketing activities that increase sales, rather than investing resources and capital in building a warehouse from scratch.

Professional logistics is a strong foundation for the effective conduct of even a large business. However, outsourcing also works for smaller entities. It allows you to significantly reduce the cost and time of execution of orders and comprehensive customer service.

Efficient warehouse is a business card of the company, which affects its positive reception by customers. This, in turn, allows you to build social awareness of the brand and trust among supporters who are happy to make purchases, knowing that they will always arrive on time.

Contract logistics is therefore a convenient and proven solution in which we operate, we have a reliable knowledge of what to do to improve the storage of all our products. For many entrepreneurs, this can be an ideal solution.

Cost of Lost benefit and Contract Logistics

Cost of lost benefit is a term derived from economics. It means that by focusing our resources on one thing, we are not able to use the same resources (e.g. time) to achieve something else.

This concept fits very strongly into the existence of contract logistics on the Polish market. Evaluation of management models, economics and even everyday life of the grey Smith at the turn of the last years had a great impact on the improvement of household life.
Stereotypes ” I have a manufacturing plant, so I need to have transport, warehouse logistics.,.”they go to the Lamus.

My professional life gave me tangible examples of this, thanks to my work at the university, I was able to interest young people who were starting businesses in the world. The keys that we solved together showed in a tangible way that outsourcing of services is a necessary condition in order to be noticed in the market and to compete boldly in it.

From this point, I would also like to thank my students that together we were able to discover and learn about the reality around us. I am always happy to take part in solutions that can improve the situation or solve the current problem. My college career is over, but my contact remains open.

To sum up “cost of lost benefit and contract logistics”.

– Specializing in production or trade, or not better to focus on what we were called to and the environment in the form of logistics, transport…. leave it to specialists who will do it better, cheaper, faster ?

I often meet with her followers and I am pleased that more and more often these words are spoken with understanding.
