For Palm Oil booking with non-restricted HS CODE, cargo owner must provide copy of NPE, copy of PEB and copy BL to be submitted following Final SI deadline. These additional documents are mandatory for all ports.

Specific for port of loading BELAWAN, ALL bookings (ALL commodities) are mandatory to provide above mentioned documents.
All documents are to be submitted to

Failure to comply may result in unloaded cargo and any costs incurred will be the responsibility of the cargo owner.
However, would like to highlight that the load status will be determined by an operation assessment and the ground conditions.

For future palm oil bookings or bookings not yet loaded, we would appreciate your help in ensuring that the relevant commodities are selected in your booking system rather than all derivatives being classified as palm oil.

We appreciate your patience and understanding while we implement the new rule.
