Procedures

Import Order Handling

Import cargo is released on presentation of original bills of lading, duly signed container guarantee forms and payment of local charges.

To process release of import cargo: Invoices for our local charges are issued to the consignee.  Invoices are available same date as vessel arrival at Dakar port.

Payment for the invoice can be made by banker’s cheque or by cash in Maersk Senegal agency.  The bank deposit must be made in the name of the company making the deposit. Proof of payment, the invoices duly stamped by the Cashier, are presented at our Imports customer service counter along with the original bill of lading and other documentation required.

Since security of your cargo is of utmost importance, our Imports staff performs a routine check of the documentation’s authenticity as well as your authorized signatures and stamps.  We may from time to time request from you a list of your authorized signatories and company stamps to keep our records up to date. Delivery orders will be issued upon submission of the required documentation and payment proof.
