Is "bill of lading" something the hauling company gives you (the seller) when they come to haul your stuff to your intended buyer?
No, you have it backwards. The bill of lading or, BOL is what the shipper gives us. It may or may not give a complete breakdown of the goods we're transporting or, if the merchandise is of a sensative nature such as high value, it may only give a very generic description such as “1,200 cs electronic devices” which could be anything from computers to televisions. It also may, or may not list the gross weight of the merchandise.Then on the back is the usual legal mumbo jumbo which states that I, as a representative of my company will deliver the sellers goods in a safe and timely fashion.Most of the time when I go to a shipper to pick up a load, it's already preloaded on a trailer and that trailer is sealed. I'm given a pick up number by my company. When I go to the shipping office I give them the name of my company, the pick up number, and verify its destination. Many places also require a copy of my CDL for security reasons.Then, it's off to where they keep the trailers. I'll usually leave my empty trailer, the one I brought in, on one side of the yard to be loaded later. Then, find the loaded one, hook up to it, pretrip it, and then verify the trailer number and door seal to make sure it matches the information on the BOL.When I arrive at the customer they may or may not check the seal. If the customer insists on unloading the trailer, he'll verify that everything matches up on the BOL before signing it and handing me a copy.I must then hand these signed BOLs into my company which they use as proof of delivery so both they and I can get paid.
When have you fired someone on the spot?
I have, and the reason for it broke my heart. Not the dismissal, but the circumstances that led to the dismissal.I was administrator of a home and school for severely multiply disabled children, most of whom were quadriplegic since birth and had the most severe intellectual disabilities as well. Two employees came to me visibly shaken and told me that they had witnessed another employee, their supervisor, “doing things in a child’s diaper area”.I was shaken, too. I asked my assistant to come into the office, and asked the two to repeat what they had seen. From the moment the accusation was made, I made sure every step was witnessed and documented. Together, my assistant and I reassured the two reporting employees, offered them our support and gave them the rest of the day off with pay. Then my assistant went up to the nursing care floor to bring the accused nurse to my office while I asked an off-duty nurse who lived on the premises to step in on the floor because of “an emergency” and paged our social worker.About twenty minutes passed from the time I first called my assistant to my office to hear the accusation until she returned to my office with the accused. We told him that he had been seen inappropriately touching a child in its genital area. He turned white and started to make excuses. He had been examining the child. He was changing the diaper. He was concerned about a red spot on the child’s skin. He and the child were playing. (This child was incapable of play.) In other words, lots of explanations and excuses and not even once saying, “Ridiculous! I did no such thing.”This was before the days of mobile phones; the nurse asked if he could call his wife. Neither my assistant nor I understood the language he spoke, but we both read the tone of voice and body language. Our impression was that this was not the first time he lost a job for this reason, but of course that was only our impression. We saw nothing that seemed to reflect surprise or indignation, though.We told the accused what was going to happen from this point on, both in terms of the government body that licensed our institution and in terms of our own investigation and the terms of his dismissal. We informed him of his rights according to our policies and state employment and child protection laws. We asked a male member of the staff to accompany him as he changed into street clothes and collected his belongings. As soon as he left my office I started making the phone calls: our government supervisor, the police, the house pediatrician, our lawyer, the child’s government-appointed guardian and social worker.The nurse was arrested the same day.Writing this account felt like a debriefing, even though this happened decades ago. Thank you for the opportunity.
What’s the difference between a waybill and a bill of lading?
In Simple terms,A Sea Waybill is a document that is given by the carrier which contains details of the Cargo like type of cargo, Dimension, name of the consignee and consignor and information like POL, POD, Carrier name, Charges etc., Now to the use of Waybill, the waybill is normally sent through mail which is mentioned as and it can be used to release the cargo. But if it is a LC shipment[1] the bill of lading is mandatory.One of the main difference between them is a Sea waybill shipment don’t need original SWB to obtain the DO whereas a shipment which has released a BL should prthe original BL to get the DO (Delivery Order).Bill of Landing is a document that is signed by the carrier and given to the shipper at the point of loading as a proof and it acts as an evidence. It also contains similar details as waybill has but it is a recognized document. Bill of lading should be sent through courier to the clearing agent in order to get the DO (Delivery Order).Now to your questions:If you are a liner you have to sign both the Waybill and Bill of lading on behalf of the Carrier (like OOCL, Mersk etc). No other has to sign those documents.There are 2 main types of BL[2], MBL and HBL, where MBL is issued by the Liner to the Shipper and HBL is issued by the Freight forwarders (the ones who loads the cargo).When you talk about no sign requirement, a Direct Master BL (only the MBL) is released there is no other documents needed (as it contain the name of actual Consignor and Consignee) other than a letter from the consignee stating the clearing agent name with it (which is necessary for the clearing agent to obtain the DO).I didn’t fully get the question details but still I have done my best up to my understanding.Hope its informative.Footnotes[1] Letter of credit - Wikipedia[2] A bill of lading • Part 2 - MBL vs. HBL - Seaoo.com | Blog
How is a shipping bill issued when Incoterms is the EXW?
A2A: The shipping bill is issued once the cargo has been loaded on board the ship. The incoterm used for the sales contract between buyer and seller has no bearing on the Bill of Lading. The carrier is not party to the sales contract.The buyer would have to book cargo with the shipping, do all exports requirements such as customs clearance, submit shipping instruction to shipping line, etc.So, regardless of the incoterm being used, the shipping bill will always be issued after loading on board the vessel. That is between the shipper and the carrier. The shipper can either be the seller or buyer.
How can I export from one country to another if I am based in another country altogether?
Yes, you can easily export from Malaysia to Turkey, being in India.Here is how?let is give some nomenclature to understand the multiple participants. total three parties are involved in this transaction, the Buyer (Turkey), the Seller (India) and the Manufacturer (Malaysia). Let us name them B, S and M respectively.Some conditions to make this process smoother:Inco terms between B and S should be CIF Turkey (Buyers Port)Inco terms between S and M should be FOB Malaysia (Manufacturer Port)as normal, B will share purchase order to S let us say at $100 and S will share its purchase order to M at $95 ($5 is the margin for S). M will produce goods and send the container to the Port (Malaysia), where S’s agent will take the handover of the goods and plan the shipment to Turkey.Here is the catch, your shipping agent / forwarder can “switch the bill of lading” so that B won’t get to know M’s details.The transit time b/w Malaysia and Turkey is enough time to switch the bill of lading and other documents. even if this shipment is done by air, documents are changed at the airport by your agent and goods are safely delivered at B’s place.Seems easy? but only possible on the above conditions. As you noticed the magic is done by your agent. If you take a order from B on FOB Malaysia terms then B’s agent will be all ready to receive the goods at M’s Port (Malaysia), and that agent will only follow B’s instruction, so can’t anything. Similarly if you give order to M on CIF Turkey terms then again, you have to give all the details to M for delivery and again on clearing the shipment B will get to know the M’s name.Hence this is one way, which I feel is the best as per my understanding though looking forward to read another answers.
What is clearing and forwarding?
Firstly, I want to say that I am by no means an expert, however I will give it a shot!Clearing and forwarding provides a service, on behalf of an importer or exporter, with the physical movement (logistics) and legalities (customs) in importing or exporting goods from one country to another. This service involves two service providers, namely the clearing agent and the freight forwarder.A clearing agent is a licensed person who submits declarations to Customs on behalf of the importers and exporters. They are be liable for the fulfilment of all obligations imposed on their traders. The clearing agent has the following responsibilities:Facilitating the Customs and Excise process to declare goods entering and leaving the country;Paying duty on behalf of the importer;Correct declaration of the goods, i.e. using the correct harmonised tariff codes to describe goods;Usage of the correct customs forms and documentation;Determining customs values by using the correct formulas and calculations.A freight forwarder provides freight forwarding services which means services of any kind relating to the carriage, consolidation, storage, handling, packing or distribution of goods as well as ancillary and advisory services in connection therewith; including but not limited to customs and fiscal matters, declaring the goods for official purposes, procuring insurance for the goods and collecting or procuring payment or documents relating to the goods.I hope this helps!
How does Letter of Credit work?
Letter of Credit (LC) is one of the main instruments for settling trade payments in import-export business. It is also known as Documentary Credit. It is a written commitment from a bank on behalf of a buyer (importer) that payment has been made to a seller (exporter) under agreed terms & conditions.How does Letter of Credit Work?The existing advantages of LC based transactions have contributed to a large extent to the growth of international trade in modern times. The working of LC involves parties to commercial Letter of Credit and steps in the process of LC that is discussed below.Parties to Letter of CreditApplicant (Opener): An Applicant is a buyer (importer) of the goods, who has to make payments to the beneficiary.Issuing Bank (Opening Bank): Issuing Bank creates a letter of credit and undertakes to make payments.Beneficiary: Beneficiary is normally a seller (supplier, exporter) of merchandise who has to receive payment from the Applicant (importer).Advising Bank: The role of Advising Bank is to give credit advice to the Beneficiary, thereby assuring the genuineness of the credit.Confirming Bank: Confirming Bank undertakes the credit opened by Issuing Bank and takes responsibility of payment/negotiation/acceptance under the credit.Negotiating/Nominated Bank: The Negotiating or Nominated Bank where an exporter can negotiate the credit without any restriction.Reimbursing Bank: Reimbursing Bank is authorized to honor the reimbursement claim in settlement of negotiation/acceptance/payment lodged with it by the Negotiating Bank.Second Beneficiary: Second Beneficiary is the person to whom credit is to be transferred by the First or Original Beneficiary.Steps involved in the Process of Letter of CreditStep 1: The importer and exporter agree on the sale terms and come into the contract encompassing the type of products, delivery schedule, mode of payment etc. After this, buyer arranges for his bank (Issuing Bank) to open a Letter of Credit in favor of the supplies. The buyer’s bank is liable to prepare LC as per importer’s instructions to the exporter and required LC documents including –Bill of Lading, Commercial Invoice, Transport Document such as Bill of Lading, Airway Bill, etc., Insurance Document, Inspection Certificate, Certificate of Origin and any other document as per the sale contract.Step 2: The bank of importer transfers LC to the Advising Bank in the exporter’s country.Step 3: Once authenticity of LC is checked, the advising bank forwards it to the supplier. The exporter now reviews the terms & conditions mentioned in LC and notify any required amendment to the importer.Step 4: After agreeing the finalized terms & conditions for trade, the supplier makes goods ready for shipment to the final destination. The exporter gets required transport documents like Bill of Lading, while shipping the goods.Step 5: Now supplier presents the shipping documents to the Negotiating Bank, indicating complete compliance with the terms of the letter of credit. The Negotiating Bank will review these documents and dispatch these to the Issuing Bank. The Negotiating Bank will also raise a reimbursement claim to the Reimbursing Bank.Step 6: After Issuing Bank receiving all documents, buyer has to make the payment to bank and will receive the documents, which will make him to take the shipment into possession.Source: Export Genius
Documents against acceptance do not have usance periods, true or false?
A2AD/A MeaningAn arrangement in which an exporterinstructs a bank to hand over shipping and title documents (see document of title) to an importer only if the importer accepts the accompanying bill of exchange or draft by signing it.Under the documents against acceptance (D/A) the buyer does not have to pay immediately. The buyer is given a credit period. He only pays on the maturity date of the accepted Bill of Exchange, which may be 30 days, 60 days, 90 days later or even longer. This method offers greater flexibility to the buyer in his cash flow and liquidity management as by the time he is required to pay, he should be able to sell the goods and secure payment from his debtors.Under this method, the seller is required to ship the goods first to the buyer. Upon shipment, the seller will obtain all the necessary documents like Bill of Exchange, Invoice, Bill of Lading (or other transport documents), Insurance Policy, Certificate of Origin and etc. He is also need to complete a collection order (furnished by his bank) with the appropriate instruction.Usance is varies from country to country.Thanks.
