Maersk Spot – US Trades
A smart solution for trading to and from the US
With Maersk Spot for US Trades, you can enjoy easy and secure movement of your goods to and from the United States every time.
The Maersk Spot service for US Trades is regulated by the FMC (Federal Maritime Confederation) and differs slightly from the regular Maersk Spot bookings.
What makes it different
- While booking, you will need to declare whether you are the ‘Price owner’ or ‘Agent’ and if you are the ‘Cargo owner’ or ‘NVOCC’ (Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier).
- For every first Maersk Spot booking made by an ‘Agent’ on behalf of a customer, a LOA (Letter of Authorization) must be signed by the ‘Price owner’ before any Maersk Spot bookings can be confirmed. The LOA is valid for a year. The LOA template can be downloaded here.
In case of an amendment, a cancellation and a new booking is currently required. For more information, please refer to our FAQ section.
Learn more about applicable fees for various scenarios (change in transport, vessel, equipment etc.) related to Maersk Spot bookings specific to US trades.
Maersk Spot helps us keep our own clients happy in that we significantly reduce waiting times for rates, and it gives us guarantee and assurance. Once the booking is placed, we know there won’t be any space issues.
We really like the concept of Freetime Extension. It saves time wasted in asking for extra Freetime. I’m able to offer 21 days of Freetime upfront to all customers that I quote.
