Can you load personal effects?
We dont recommend loading of valuable personal effects when shipping by RoRo as there are quite a few hands along the journey to the final discharge port. However should the vehicle be loaded into a container, then loading is not a problem as the container will be opened in the presence of your agent. Of course we do recommend finding out about the tax implication.
Vehicle Shipped – What’s Next?
Once your vehicle is shipped we shall notify you, and furthermore you will be sent a draft Bill of Lading. It is critical that you check the details on the Draft Bill of Lading and ensure that everything is correct and complete.
The Bill of Lading is a really important document and its contents are critical in ensuring that you have a smooth release of your cargo at the discharge port.
Bill of Lading Approved – Telex Release or Original Bill of Lading?
You will often be asked by our documentation team whether you wish to arrange a Telex Release or require the Original Bill of Lading. What is the difference?
Telex Release: This is where a copy of the Bill of Lading will suffice to release the shipment as opposed to Original Bills of Lading which need to be presented for release of the shipment. With Telex release the original documents are surrendered and therefore the copy is sufficient.
