Australia’s Custom Bonding and Clearance

Section 77G Licensed Depot
s.77G depot is licensed by Customs that allows certain activities to be undertaken in relation to goods that are subject to Customs control.
These activities include:
- The holding and unpacking of imported goods
- The holding and packing of goods for export
- The examination by Customs of imported and exported goods
Imported goods received at a s.77G depot can be released directly into home consumption once all Customs and Quarantine Legislative requirements are met. This is achieved by an electronically communicated ‘release status’ being transmitted to the depot operator via Customs Sea Cargo automation systems.
All applicants should note that imported cargo can only be stored at s.77G depots for a defined period of time.
Section 77G depots allow imported to have goods unpacked away from the wharf. Goods are entered (through a nature 10 Customs entry) and can then be released directly into home consumption once Customs and Quarantine requirements have been met. As all s.77G depots are electronically linked to the Cargo Sea Automation system, clearance and delivery of goods is quick and efficient compared to a manual system.
Storage of goods subject to Customs in depots is allowable to the end of the following month after month of importation. When this period has elapsed, the goods must be transferred to a licensed s.79 warehouse (General bond), unless special permission is granted. It is the responsibility of the depot operator to enter into a commercial arrangement to with a s.79 warehouse (General bond) to receive cargo that has been at the depot for over two months since date of importation.
Third Party Logistics(3PL) and supply chain Consulting
The Supply Chain Development team of ADSone offers supply chain optimisation from analysis to design to implementation.
A handpicked team of experts combine knowledge and experience within local and international logistics with best in class analysis techniques and tools, supported by strong project management and implementation skills.
Understanding your business and identifying opportunities
Our logistics team engage with you to understand your current supply chain through a joint discussion and brainstorming session on the initial analyses and findings uncovered during the preparation phase.
This process helps focus our data gathering, interviews and process reviews. We will also be able to prioritise the initial key opportunities which are in line with your business strategy for further investigation.
Our logistics team will further analyse the key elements of your existing operations, such as:
- Product flows
- Lead times
- High-level process mapping
This analysis will serve as the basis for the gap analysis in which business improvement ideas have been identified.
Our team will then calculate the value of these improvement areas
Based on the business improvement areas identified, our team will put forward recommendations.
Each of these will have been tested through simulation of future supply chain scenarios and will serve to prioritize the logistic solutions by order of highest business value and ease of implementation.
The results will directly feed into a value implementation roadmap specifying practical solutions leading to;
- Cost reduction
- Increased operating margin
- Improved asset utilization
- Process efficiency
