Inco Terms

The Incoterms® rules have been incorporated in contracts for the sale of goods worldwide and provide guidance to importers, exporters, lawyers, transporters, insurers and students of international trade.

Measurement Guidelines

Accurate cargo measurement is extremely important. Accuracy is required to determine the amount of stowage space necessary to safely stow cargo on board the vessel as efficiently as possible.

Shipping Guidelines

It is important to provide as many details as possible, including commodity photos, all necessary documentation, measurements, and your anticipated transit timeline based on shipping schedules.

Cargo Guidelines

Stow your cargo properly and and secure it well. Pre-plan the stowage of the cargo in the container. Improperly securing your cargo can result in significant freight damage.
