Sea shipping prices can vary month-to-month and they depend on a number of factors and seasonality. Below is a list of common acronyms that represent carrier charges.
Cargo insurance is not mandatory, but it can be useful; we highly recommend shipment by shipment policies or annual policies. Ocean cargo insurance covers any cargo damage in any instance. My goods are not at risk, so why should I get marine insurance? It is possible that your goods may be less prone to loss or damage than others, but you still run the risk of a ship sinking, a plane crashing, or some other catastrophic event. It is important to keep in mind that a ship sinks every single day according to maritime statistics. In addition, you are vulnerable to General Average losses. Studies conclude that a shipper will be involved in a General Average incident once every eight years. This could potentially lead to a business ending situation without a cargo insurance policy.
A bill of lading is the document that covers transports by sea. Signed by the carrier, whether a shipping line or a freight forwarder, it serves as a receipt to the consignor for the goods, as evidence of the contract of transport containing the conditions of transport, and as a document of title by which possession of the goods can be transferred. Typically a B/L is issued in a set of three signed originals or negotiable, one of which must be presented to claim the goods upon which the others become void.
Importer Security Filing (ISF, also known as 10+2), was introduced by Customs as part of Homeland Security in order for them to identify high-risk shipments and protect American borders. ISF requires importers and vessel carriers to provide advance data elements electronically to CBP for inbound non-bulk ocean cargo shipments. Customs began enforcing ISF submissions in July 2013. CBP regulation requires the ISF be submitted to CBP no later than 24 hours prior to the cargo being loaded on the vessel destined to the United States.
The liquidated damages claims amounts are $5000 per violation.
