Documentation 

The timely receipt of the shipping instruction (SI) ensures that we can process your shipment as planned. If you do not provide this information, the original transport plan that you have received may have to be changed. Consequently, your shipment might be shortshipped. In addition, if already loaded, the shipment may be left on board due to legal requirements in the destination country.

In order for us to process your booking efficiently, we appreciate if you provide the following information in the SI:

  1. Booking number
  2. Shipper
  3. Consignee
  4. Port of load
  5. Port of discharge
  6. Container number
  7. No of packages
  8. Cargo description (incl. package description)

  10. Payment terms: prepaid/collect (please specify for ocean freight/origin charges/destination charges)

SI should be submitted at least 24 hours prior to loading of your container onto the vessel at first load port. Exception: USA/Canada utilizes the 24hrs rule – SI must be received at least 24 hours prior to vessel arrival at load port.

You can submit your SI:

  • Via Maersk Line maerskline.com or INTTRA inttra.com.
  • By email attachment to: BOMGSCIDX@maersk.com

Restrictions

Weight and measurement 

Maximum allowed cargo weight for road transportation is 30 tons. For more information on weight and measurement restrictions please contact your local Maersk Line office.

Special cargo 

Out of gauge, break bulk and dangerous cargo subject to standard Maersk Line approval procedures.

Custom clearance 

All export cargo must be custom cleared before arrival to port. This is due to increased security from the Swedish Customs Authority. The exporter is always responsible for the cargo being customs cleared in due time but Maersk Line can assist if requested. 

As from the 1st of June 2013 the possibility to mark an export booking with Q will cease to exist. As a carrier, we are responsible to report the customs status, MRN, to the Swedish Customs for all export containers that we load. MRN must be reported on container level. Late received or incomplete shipping instruction will mean that the container cannot be loaded on the vessel. The MRN number must be provided to local office no later than the time specified in your the booking confirmation.
