Hi! This is Yuki. How was your this week?
Today I introduce logistics flow in English.
It’s important to understand logistics flow and paper works when you transport the cargo internationally.
1. Booking to forwarder
The forwarder prepare vessel or air space, truck from your ware house, packing, custom clearance and necessary docs for your cargo instead of you.
You only need to contact with your forwarder then they arrange all logistics service.
2.Preparing necessary documents
It’s is very important to prepare documents, for example, SI, draft B/L, invoice, packing list, certification of origin and so on. Depend on contract under you and your forwarder, they maybe prepare all docs. If these docs have mistakes, a cargo can’t pass through the custom clearance then you miss the target vessel. In addition, if the cert of origin has mistake, a cargo is not allowed for duty reduction.
We need special attention to all documents.
3. Arrange the truck
Your forwarder arrange the truck for cut off schedule.
Your forwarder arrange the packing for international cargo depend on the size such as wooden box, pallets, steel case and so on. Normally we can’t send the carton style because may cause damage.
5. Export custom clearance
The forwarder declare the cargo to the custom then the cargo is released and loaded vessel or airplane, and issued B/L. We forwarder pass it to the customer.
