How to avoid flying goods to the wrong port of destination?

Zhouhang Logistics:

In the process of air import and export operation, it is inevitable to encounter the wrong port of destination, delivery problems, bill of lading problems, etc.

Once a situation occurs, freight forwarders and cargo owners should communicate with each other in a timely manner and take urgent measures to minimize

losses. So what remedies do we have to do? Today I will list a few common problems and focus on them with you!

First of all, how to avoid the cargo flying to the wrong port of destination?

1. Booking

In the actual operation process of air transportation, first of all, in the important link of booking, the destination port must be clear to avoid mistakes at the

destination port. In addition, try to use the destination port code when booking, so that it is professional and will not be confused. Don't take it too seriously,

there are many airports with the same name, such as:

Birmingham City (BHM) vs Birmingham City (BHX)

Auckland (AKL) vs Auckland (OAK)

Cologne (ONX) vs Cologne (QCO)

Sydney (SYD) vs Sydney (YQY)

Paris (PAR) vs Paris (PRX)

Moscow (SVO) vs Moscow (NJW)

San Jose (SJO) vs Jose (SJC) vs San Jose (SJI)

San Diego (SCL) vs San Diego i.e. San Diego (SAN) vs San Diego (SCU)

There are also some similar airport codes:

For example: London (LHR) VS Lahore (LHE)

Istanbul (IST) VS Islamabad (ISB)

Ahmedabad (AMD) VS Madrid(MAD)

2. Customs declaration

In the customs declaration process, the customs declaration form should also show the words of the country of arrival and the port of shipment. It is necessary to

confirm the arrival of the country and the correct port of shipment, so as to avoid the goods flying to the wrong port of destination. If it is found that the customs

declaration form on the arrival country and the port of shipment declaration are wrong, it should be confirmed and revised in time.

3. Waybill confirmation

When confirming the content of the waybill, it is necessary to pay attention to check whether the three-character code of the consignee's information and the port

of destination is consistent with the port of destination that actually needs to be reached. Careful proofreading in this link can also avoid mistakes in the destination

port, and the position of the destination port three-character code.

Under normal circumstances, after the air cargo arrives at the airport of destination, the airline will send a notice of arrival of the goods to the consignee according

to the consignee's information displayed on the master bill, notify the consignee of the arrival of the goods and let the consignee arrange customs clearance and

delivery in time. In this link, the information of the main order is particularly important. A series of information such as the correct and complete company name,

address, telephone number, and contact person need to be displayed in the main bill so that the airline can contact the consignee accurately and timely.

Today, I will summarize a few questions and answers about the pick-up of air cargo at the port of destination, and once again help you consolidate relevant knowledge.

Without an air waybill, can the consignee pick up the goods?

First of all, we should have a clear understanding of the air waybill, the role of the air waybill and the ocean waybill is completely different, and it is not a certificate

of property ownership. Therefore, there is no air waybill, and the customer can pick up the goods as long as they have a notice of arrival and can prove that the

consignee is the main order and the consignee is.
