A customs broker: container overweight processing method
On July 1, the international maritime organization (
To implement the convention on the international safety of life at sea (
About the requirements of the relevant export container weight check.
The specified requirements, unless the shipper on the bill of lading to the shipping carrier and/or terminal representative provide container weight, otherwise the container will no longer allow loading.
With this new rule: there are three key points we need to pay attention to in the shipper's responsibility to provide container weight, there are two approved weighing method to determine the container weight and terminal operators have an obligation to ensure that a check of the weight of the container to ship.
Small make up today, will come to tell you about the current if there are any container overweight, how should we to deal with.
The limit weight of each container, container itself out of the door are indicated the most heavy end of information, such as MAXGROSS: 32550 KGS.
Meaning: box box with goods can't more than the weight.
There will be show the TARE weight of the container TARE 3740 KGS, and so on information, the following graph: MAXGROSS is container body can withstand maximum intensity, loading exceeds this limit, may be the body variant, falls off floor, roof beam bending damage, such as the resulting all losses will be borne by all loading people.
At present domestic most professional container terminals are installed automatically scale load, so as long as the container loading is out of body weight, wharf is all refused to take up the ark.
So proposal before packing, see clear on the container body weight, to avoid unnecessary return box heavy homework.
If the goods is overweight and can't break up, you can choose to overweight.
Here is increased to choose heavy fees, general ordinary dry dock/yard will ship company in together, if you want to choose one special increase ark, wharf, yard must sequentially, the resulting choose ark fee generally with specified ark fee same price.
Container transportation is a multisectoral collaborative process involved, so in addition to the weight of container body itself, there are some other factors to consider.
Second, the shipping company limited heavy weight usually each ship company policy is different, some standard is not on the basis of damage to the container.
In the space and weight balance.
Each space and weight of the container ship has certain limitations, but on some routes, the shipping space and weight are not always just right balance out.
Conflicts often occur in the heavy stuff more concentrated in north China, the weight of the ship has arrived, the shipping space is less, in order to make up for the loss of shipping, shipping companies tend to take the price strategy, that is, how much cargo weighing more than tons after extra freight.
Also have a shipping company not with his own boat, but to buy other ship company shipping space to transport, the limitation on the weight will be more strictly, because the space between the shipping company to buy or sell a is in accordance with the 1 teu = 14 tons or 16 tons standard to calculate, more than the weight of not to give into the boat.
In class period, according to heat different routes, shipping companies to cut every box of weight.
When booking, at the latest shipment will ask forwarder about the shipping company restricted problem again.
If not confirm the goods is heavy cargo has risk, and after some ship companies are overweight, there would be no room for communication, direct the cargo consignor to drag, clearance, tao and weigh again.
These fees are bad control.
Three, port weight basically see the wharf and yard equipment load.
After container ship docked, typically require wharf crane for loading and unloading operation, and then by lorry to the container yard hanging with forklift truck.
If the weight of the container more than mechanical load, you will make it difficult to the wharf and yard of homework, so, for some of the small port equipment is relatively backward, the shipping company usually told the weight of the port in advance, don't accept more than the limit.
Four, form a complete set of feeder vessel or road weight done inland points were the least in the United States, the United States highway transportation weight is very strict, because a lot of container at the dock after unloading need to use card road to inland, so the road weight also become limit the weight of the container shipping company reason, of course, only do the dock.
Line to the United States is very strict with the weight of the goods, the weight is mainly affected by the inland point road weight to the United States, generally small ark of 17.
3 tons, big tall ark 19.
But according to different ports have different weight.
Five different routes, line weight, ship company is according to the cargo handling capacity of the order and the goods export types and different heat to arrange, in addition to the port of destination equipment operating load problem, the different routes ark of weight nature also have different size.
Overweight processing method: the main points overweight weight of shipping companies, port, the port of destination are overweight.
1, the shipping company limited.
More than routes of loading weight range, negotiate with shipping company to pay the charges for overweight.
2, port area have their own rules of overweight.
If the port, it found that overweight, sorting of discharge.
3, the port of destination are overweight.
Generally the port of destination within a certain range after being overweight, late fees can be solved;
If overweight, along the crane will be able to load only in the nearby port of discharge or the original back.
Edit summary: the above is the small make up to introduce today, what are we to do if there are any container overweight.
