For this reason, the seller’s inventory stored in the logistics center of the seven major sites in Europe will be exempted from the long-term storage fee on May 15. At the same time, all the goods weighing more than 15 kg at all the stations, as well as the non-priority distribution products of the logistics centers in France and Italy, will also be exempted from the monthly storage fee in April.
