Over the last ten years, the Colombian government has been
developing and implementing several policies on foreign trade
(understood as the operations of exports and imports of goods
and services) in order to achieve greater benefits for economic
growth and development, such as Vallejo Plan, International Trade Agreements and the Single Window for Foreign Trade (VUCE), among others. Within these instruments, we can find the customs public warehouses, which facilitate the process of importing goods.
This document presents a general overview of the most important aspects of the custom warehouses, the benefits that they represent to Companies, the different types deposits and a list of existing public warehouses registered before the Colombian Tax and Customs Authority (DIAN).
