With reference to the recently published notification on the reporting requirements for pre-arrival processing by Sri Lankan customs, NVOCCs and freight forwarders that are consignee to a shipment entering Sri Lanka are required to report their House BL information to customs (ASYHUB) not later than 24 hours before the vessel’s departure from the last foreign port. This reporting requirement has been in effect since 1st of April 2024.

To help you comply with this requirement, from Maersk offers a cutting-edge digital solution that makes it easy to submit all the required information via Maersk.com.

How To Submit House BL data

1. Navigate to Maersk.com and log in to your Hub dashboard using your username/password. Enter your BL number in the Import manifest box:

House BL data

2. Click on Create House BL:

Create House BL

3. Enter your House BL details and allocate your cargo

The House BL instructions can be submitted by the consignee/forwarder as soon as the Master BL shipping instructions have been submitted until 24 hours prior to vessel arrival in Sri Lanka .

This service is provided free of charge during the implementation and adoption phase of the new ASYHUB system in Sri Lanka.

By submitting House BL data through Maersk.com customers can re-use available data, thereby limiting the need for manually keying in. Together with our advanced validation rules this reduces the risk of errors and discrepancies that could otherwise lead to customs penalties.
