Warehousing and transport

In the past, tea was transported in traditional plywood boxes. Today, in the majority of cases, the fine leaves reach us packed in bags and shipped in standard containers from China, India, Africa and Latin America. 

For the refinement work, our team of experts have the corresponding aromas and bags of orange blossoms, vanilla pods, mango pieces and numerous other ingredients at their disposal. Thereby, the recipes of our customers remain confidential and are in safe hands with us. In our tea warehouses in Bremen, Bury St. Edmunds and Dongen, Vollers meets the requirements of various certifications and standards.
