Freight Shipment: Shipping Bill Mobile App
In a shipment where customs drawback is claimed, such as on cargo goods exported or on dutiable goods transshipped or re-exported from a bonded warehouse, the shipper needs to complete a shipping bill, which essentially serves as a statistical record.
How does it work?
The exporter signs a declaration that the quality and specification of the cargo as stated in the shipping bill are in accordance with the terms of the exports contract entered into with the buyer/consignee in pursuance of which the goods are being shipped and exported, as part of a contract of carriage. The exporter also declares that they are not claiming benefit and that the export value of the cargo shipment covered by this shipping bill is not less than the total value of all imported materials used in the manufacture of such goods. The Freight Shipment: Shipping Bill app allows the shipper to enter the necessary invoice details about the shipment to assist with customs clearance and allow for transparency with the consignee or buyer, with whom it can be easily shared. Using such an electronic app can lead to fewer errors, assisting with liability, avoiding additional charges, and ensure efficient transportation and delivery of a freight shipment to its final destination.
