Shipping Instruction Submission – Cut off times

Dear Valued Customers,

For export shipments to China and Japan, the Shipper is responsible for ensuring completed Shipping Instruction submission to carriers a minimum 48 hours before vessel arrival at load port. For vessels arriving at load port on Monday or Tuesday, Shipping Instruction cutoff date & time will be 4pm local time on the Friday before of the vessel arrival day at load port.

Failure to submit a completed Shipping Instruction before the cut off may result in a Do Not Load instruction due to destination customs authority ruling. All terminal & associated costs with transferring Do Not Load shipments or China customs penalties incurred will be to shippers account.
