Bill of Lading

A bill of lading serves as a receipt for the goods that have been shipped, and it also serves as a contract between the shipper and the carrier. The bill of lading includes important information such as the names of the parties involved, the destination and origin of the shipment, and a description of the goods being shipped. It also specifies the terms and conditions of the transportation, including any restrictions or special instructions.

Commercial Invoice

A commercial invoice is a document that is used in international trade to provide detailed information about the goods being sold. It is typically prepared by the seller and sent to the buyer, along with the shipment of goods. The commercial invoice is used for customs purposes, as well as for payment and accounting. It must include detailed information about the goods being imported, such as the quantity, value, and country of origin. It must also include the name and contact information of the seller and the buyer, as well as the terms of sale and the method of payment.

Packing List

A packing list for freight is a document that outlines the items that are being shipped in a particular freight shipment. This list can be used to ensure that all of the items in the shipment are accounted for and to provide information about the contents of the shipment to parties involved in the transportation process, such as customs officials. The packing list should include a description of each item, the quantity of each item, and the total weight and volume of the shipment. In some cases, it may also include information about the packaging used for each item, as well as the total value of the shipment.

ISF Info Sheet

The ISF (Importer Security Filing) filing sheet is a document that must be submitted to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) by the importer or their authorized agent at least 24 hours before the shipment is loaded on a vessel destined for the United States. The ISF filing sheet is also known as the 10+2 filing, as it consists of ten data elements provided by the importer and two data elements provided by the carrier. By filing the ISF filing sheet, the CBP is provided with advance information about the shipment, allowing them to better identify and assess potential security risks associated with the importation of goods.

Power of Attorney

A power of attorney (POA) is a legal document that authorizes one person or entity to act on behalf of another (the principal) in certain shipping or customs clearance-related matters. The POA is typically used by importers or exporters to grant authority to a freight forwarder, customs broker, or other shipping agent to act on their behalf in various shipping-related matters. The POA must be signed by the principal and may be either general or limited in scope. A general POA grants broad authority to the agent to act on behalf of the principal in all matters related to shipping and customs clearance. A limited POA, on the other hand, grants authority only in specific matters or for a limited period of time.

Arrival Notice

The arrival notice is usually sent by the shipping company or freight forwarder to the consignee or their authorized agent. It serves as a notification to the consignee that they need to arrange for the clearance and delivery of their shipment from the port or airport. The arrival notice may also include other important details such as the amount of freight charges due, any customs or clearance fees that need to be paid, and any additional instructions or requirements for clearing the shipment through customs and taking delivery of the goods.
