Verify Copies (of your Bill of Lading or Waybill) will be posted to the web, once the Shipping Instruction or Amendment has been processed. You can sign up for Alert messages to be sent to you, to inform that the Verify Copy is ready for you to view. For those that choose not to receive Verify Copies, you can similarly receive Alert messages to inform your Bill of Lading or Waybill is ready.
We recommend you sign up to receive these Alert messages. This will mean you do not need to keep checking the status on the web. Plus you will receive the Verify Copy as a PDF attachment in the email Alert message.
Application of Transport Document Amendment Fee
If you submit your shipping instruction early and require changes prior to the vessel sailing date, we will process these changes without applying the AMF.
The Transport Document Amendment Fee (AMF) will subsequently be applied for any change requests received post vessel sailing date, the Shipped on Board date. These changes may include payment terms, cargo description, piece count, weight and address details; and AMF is applied on a ‘per instruction’ basis, meaning an amendment instruction may contain a number of items to be amended in the same request.

Customers in Fiji are offered Combined Detention & Demurrage for both export and import shipments. This means you will have one combined free time period and compensation for the utilisation of equipment inside and outside of terminals or depots.
The Export Detention & Demurrage period in Fiji is calculated from the container pick-up empty date to Load date.
Container Free Time is the agreed period without fees offered to the customer prior to the proforma vessel ETD. Detention Fee – Export is applicable when the customer holds carrier equipment longer than the agreed amount of free time.
Free Time days are determined at the booking confirmation stage whether it was placed under SPOT, Contract or Tariff Terms & Conditions

Contract Export Detention & Demurrage
Contractual Free Time is applied to the booking if the Price Owner’s contract includes additional free days on top of the standard tariff free days.
Contracts must be applied to the booking prior to the collection of the first container under the release for the contractual free time days and rates to apply.
Separation of Terminal Storage
Terminal Storage is defined as the compensation for utilising the port, terminal or depot or inland container yard facilities. Australian port companies charge customers directly for storage compensation.
This allows a clear distinction of the compensation applied for utilising the port, terminal or depot facilities (Storage), and the compensation incurred for utilisation of equipment beyond the agreed free time days inside terminals or depots (Demurrage).
Please find following an outline of the correct communication channels for all Export Documentation matters. Note a Manual Documentation Fee (MDF) will apply to Shipping Instructions received via Email.
E-Commerce data submission
First and foremost, we have extensive electronic data submission options, ranging from our first class facility on maersk.com through to full EDI. Many of our customers prefer electronic options, with 90% of customers submitting their Shipping Instructions on-line.
Manual data submission
If you submit your Shipping Instructions (SI) manually, below are the email channels to use.
- First SI submission – email to MNLGSCIDX@maersk.com
- Amendment requests to first SI submission – email to MNLGSCAMD@maersk.com
The correct format to submit your SI manually, is a PDF attached to the email. Please do not submit your SI within an email attached to an email. It will not be recognized. The PDF must be attached to the immediate email you are sending.
Please clearly indicate on your amendment requests, the information that is to be amended. Old data / New data is the most preferable method. This will help keep the processing turn time to a minimum and avoid extra communication and delay.
If you submit an updated SI, with no notation to indicate the changed details, it will not be processed. If the amendment cannot be processed, for any reason, you will be notified by auto-mated email.
Please also note, MNLGSCIDX and MNLGSCAMD are receiving emails only. You will not receive a reply from these email addresses. If you have any questions regarding documentation, you will need to direct it to the customer service team you usually correspond with e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org
