What should I do if I encounter abandonment? (Top): 2018-08-03 12:06:00 Almost all shipping company agreements have added such a clause (abandonment clause): Party A: Forwarding Party B: Shipping company Party A should guarantee when the goods are shipped to the port of destination , The consignee will according to the normal local customs declaration and collection procedures, promptly change the order to the carrier or the carrier’s agent to pick up the goods, and bear the relevant local lifting and unloading and storage costs: if there is a delay in picking up/refusing to pick up/or abandoning Party A must be responsible for returning, destroying, auctioning or disposing of the goods by other methods in accordance with local laws and regulations, and returning them to the container. Party A agrees to pay Party B in advance the expenses incurred (including but not limited to lifting, storage, return, destruction, etc.) based on Party B’s reasonable estimate. Party A agrees that if there is a delay in delivery/refusal of delivery/or abandonment at the port of destination resulting in demurrage, and the consignee refuses to bear the demurrage, Party A shall pay or compensate the demurrage in accordance with the standard of Party B’s port of destination. The calculation time of the demurrage fee at the port of destination is: from the end of the free use of the container to the actual return date. The freight forwarder feels wronged, but what can be done? The problem of abandoning goods should start from the source and then look at the solution. 1. Why traders abandon the goods: 1. The consignee refuses to pick up the goods due to the quality of the goods, market price fluctuations, unfavorable sales of the imported goods, etc.; no one picks up the goods due to the closure or disappearance of the receiving company. 2. The consignor refuses to deliver the bill of lading to the consignee because it has not received the payment, so that the consignee cannot pick up the goods. 3. Due to incomplete customs clearance information at the port of destination, customs clearance problems occurred and the goods could not be picked up normally. 4. Due to special conditions, the arrival time of the goods far exceeds expectations, and the consignee refuses to pick up the goods. 5. Other trade disputes.
