[Operation] The circulation process and risk prevention of designated goods (Part 2) CNS Logistics
[Operation] The circulation process and risk prevention of designated goods (below): 2018-08-14 11:23:00 Risk of designated goods There are two main risks in the use of designated freight forwarders under FOB: one is delivery of goods without B/L, and the other The charges are unreasonable. Generally, FOB designated freight forwarders, as long as they can confirm the customer's credit, basically are not likely to have problems. Therefore, after confirming the order with foreign customers, first ask for domestic agent information from the customer in time to check the agent's qualifications. If the other party does not have the qualification of a non-vessel carrier, be careful, because now it is easy to register a freight forwarder, and you can register for 10,000 yuan. However, NVOCCs are not the same. They have to pay a deposit of 800,000 yuan. Such companies dare not release the goods without B/L. In addition, ask the agent what bill of lading to issue. If the title of the bill of lading issued by the agent is inconsistent with the company filed by the Ministry of Communications, the agent is required to issue a letter of guarantee as a billing agent. This is to provide strong evidence for future claims for delivery of goods without B/L. Regarding the fee, the agent will confirm the LOCAL fee in writing before booking. Some designated freight forwarders will charge hundreds of booking fees or operating fees. Some document fees are astonishingly high, and some exchange rates are astonishingly high. If you find that the charge is unreasonable, you can discuss with the agent first, if you can avoid it, you can avoid it, and if you can reduce it, you can reduce it. In fact, many domestic agents rely on this to make money, and many foreign agents now do not divide profits. If it still doesn't work, you can only complain to foreign customers. If the foreign customers are good, you can say something for you. Some fees can be waived. If the trade profit is high, then forget it. Now it is not easy to do domestic freight forwarding. The main thing here is to see what bill of lading issued by the designated freight forwarder. The least risky is to ask for the owner’s bill of lading. If it is a forwarder bill of lading, it is possible to release the goods without a bill of lading. right. As for the bill of lading, try to make it as TO ORDER OF THE SHIPPER. If it is named, the risk is not too big, but it is very troublesome to return and resell. 1. Under FOB terms, the customer specifies the freight forwarder, who will pay the booking fee? Some RMB fees such as booking fees are paid by the shipper. 2. If the customer specifies a freight forwarder, what should I confirm with the customer before booking? The customer designated freight forwarder only needs to ask the local contact information of the freight forwarder. Then you have to fax a shipping power of attorney to the freight forwarder, which should list the number of pieces, gross weight, volume, and flight time of the goods in detail... 3. Who should declare the freight forwarder as designated by the customer? As far as the buyer and seller are concerned, the obligation to declare customs depends on the terms. If it is a FOB export, the seller is responsible for all the expenses and operations incurred before boarding the ship, including customs declaration. Since the risk before boarding is also borne by the seller, the seller should try his best to ensure the control of the goods and documents before boarding. 4. The designated goods are inspected, who will bear the cost? The freight forwarder is only an agent, and the inspection is because of your own company or the problem of the goods that caused the customs's suspicion or random inspection...It has nothing to do with the freight forwarder, so it is paid by the shipper.
