About "Consignee" and "Notify Party" in the B / L column of the knit product exchange certificate


While I feel that the sound of autumn is approaching, Mr. Cicada is still working hard and singing. The last week of August.

Enjoy the “summer” that is running low.

Now, this time, I would like to touch on the “Consignee” and “Notify Party” in the B / L that we get when exporting knit yarn.

Normally, for exports I handle, the Consignee and Notify Party columns have the same name.

What would be the same?

Introduction. Basic contents described in B / L

B / L is a document issued by a shipping company when exporting knit yarn by ship, and is also a security.

→→ The exporter must hand over the B / L to the importer once it is obtained.

→→ The importer can pick up the cargo in exchange for the original B / L.

The following contents are mainly specified in the B / L.

From who to who

* Shipper (exporter)

* Consignee (importer)

From where to where

* Departure name

* Port entry name


* Cargo contents

Items, number of cases, weight, etc.

“Consignee” Notify Party “in the information column from who to who

The exports I arrange

== Consignee consignee = Example) Because ABC CORPORATION has an import procedure or an import instruction.

Please let ABC CORPORATION know that you would like to be notified that the cargo has arrived at the port. In the sense of.

Consignee = Notify Party with the same name.

Consignee Example ABC CORPORATION

Notify Party Example Notated as Same as consignee.

* On the other hand, what if Consignee and Notify Party are different?

Example: When you want to proceed with the import procedure in the shortest, shortest, shortest (laughs).

Make Notify Party a Consignee Customs Broker

→→ If you only need to prepare the documents in advance with the customs broker before arrival and wait for the cargo to arrive.

As soon as the arrival notification is received, the customs broker can proceed to customs clearance.

At the end

Until now, in most cases, “Same as consignee” was written in the Notify Party column.

I didn’t really care about it, but as I investigated this time, it had a clear meaning.

I learned that in the case of trilateral transactions, it may not be Same as consignee.

see you.
