How do I submit my Shipping instructions?

Reimagining Shipping Instructions

In order to load your container(s), we need certain information to create a bill of lading and submit information to customs authorities and export, transhipment and import. The deadlines for submitting a Shipping Instruction can be seen in the Overview and Binder tabs.

If your shipment was created as a duplicate of a previous shipment, all of the details will be copied into the Shipping Instruction.

  1. Click Account located at the top right corner of the home page and Login.
  2. Click on Manage in the top menu and select Shipment Overview - Export.
  3. Click Pending task on Shipment Overview and select Submit to view the list of bookings with missing Shipping Instruction or view the Overview page in Shipment Binder.
  4. Click Submit shipping instruction.
  5. In some scenarios you will encounter a new experience for shipping instructions. Please check the next section for more details.

How to submit a shipping instruction (new experience)?
