New at Vetipak: Inward Processing
Good news! Customers who have products from outside Europe and packed by us, no longer have to pay import duties. Thanks to our new service ‘Inward Processing’ (also known as bonded handling) they save up to thirty percent of the value of the products.
Inward Processing (IP) makes it possible to ‘inward’ process products from outside Europe, which means that they don’t have to pay import duties on it. The condition for IP is that the products do not end up on the European market as a finished product. Depending on the type of product, our customers quickly save twenty to thirty percent of the value of the products.
The impending Brexit was a important reason for developing this service. But of course now we can also use IP for packaging products from other non-Europe countries whose final product is not intended for the European market. For example; think of travel retail goods!
To serve our customers as completely as possible, we work with an IP standard process:
We sign out delivered T1-documents;
We apply for a permit for Inward Processing;
We have T1-documents drawn up for the finished product.

Solved: Emergency Job for Nationwide Consortium
It’s a Wednesday afternoon. We receive a call from the National Consortium for Medical Devices, based in Den Haag. They’re urgently looking for large-scale packaging services. And not only do they need these services “yesterday,” they want the reassurance that the packaging operations comply with the strictest quality and hygiene guidelines. “Can you handle this sort of thing?”, they ask us. Six days later, we’ve massively upscaled our Personal Care division, to the point where we can now deliver tens of thousands of kits a week.
Oss takes the lead in circular packaging
Just like Vetipak, the municipality of Oss is very active in the field of sustainable packaging. Due to the strong presence of the packaging industry in the area, the municipality has even launched the Oss Circular Packaging Innovation Program. A publication on this subject recently appeared in FOOD Locations, for which our CCO Mark van der Burgt was also interviewed.
