The sea freight export process and the latest status of the air forwarder
FCL by sea is similar to LCL LCL, except that the FCL is self-picked up to the factory to compete for logistics warehouse packing, while LCL is to row the goods to the designated assembly yard competition warehouse, and the assembly yard will pick up the empty container and agree to pack (do the box)
Let's take a look at the FCL basis process.
1. After booking, the booking agent will get a booking confirmation from the shipping company or its agent, commonly known as the box list or box list. South China is also called SO.
2. Send the booking confirmation (SO) to the towing company, and inform the towing company of the time when the goods are ready, the detailed packing location, the contact person, and the telephone number. [The factory and trailer company must confirm the packing time.] ）
3. After the towing company arrives at the booking confirmation (SO), go to the designated window to place an order (different shipping companies have different places to order). The order is to read the booking confirmation to the designated place, and something called "Equipment Handover Order" comes back. Wen "Equipment Handover Order" must be used in picking, packing, and returning links.
4. The trailer driver reads the "Equipment Handover Order" and goes to the designated Falcon packing yard to pick up empty containers. After mentioning the fantasy, according to the pre-confirmed packing place and room, arrive at the factory competition logistics warehouse on time to prepare for packing. The factory competes with the logistics warehouse to take care of the packing.
& Then start packing. After packing, the falcons are sealed with lead seals, and the driver weeps the loaded boxes back to the designated yard to compete for the port yard. After the yard receives the boxes (the loaded boxes are called "heavy containers"). Send shipping information to the customs system.
6. After receiving the transportation information from the customs system, it proves that the Wen individual goods have been under the supervision of the customs (those yards are all under the supervision of the customs). You can declare customs. Then, the follow-up work is to pull the heavy containers one by one to the yard next to the dock to prepare for loading. The Jiaogang Time Pass starts three days before ETD. There is no necessary connection between Hayabusa Port and whether the customs declaration is released (the Yangshan Port table is special, generally first customs declaration and then Hayabusa Port). You can go to Hayabusa Port after customs declaration and release or to Hayabusa Harbor first.
The process is probably like Wen Chen's. The sea LCL principle is similar. Since the general cargo owner only delivers the goods to the designated warehouse on time, how to do it subsequently is a matter for the LCL company, so the cargo owner does not need to work hard to understand. Buri doesn't say much.
