What is Designated Goods?
The so-called designated goods refer to the freight forwarding designated by the foreign buyer, and the freight forwarder is responsible for helping them arrange the cargo transportation. Usually refers to FOB, EXW and other freight-paid goods (that is, the freight is borne by foreign buyers).
Designated operation process
First of all, the freight forwarder (hereinafter referred to as the foreign agent) designated by the buyer sends an email or contacts the domestic company or partner through other contact methods to inform the shipper of the contact information.
Secondly, after receiving the contact information of the shipper, the domestic freight forwarder contacts the shipper to inquire about the status of the goods, and sends an email or other means to inform the foreign agent. If the goods are good, you can inform the other party of the expected shipping information and ask if you can arrange for shipping. If the booking number of the foreign agent used is also requested, the booking number must be requested to be submitted to the shipping company. It is necessary to pay special attention to the fact that the designated goods are the instructions of the consignee, not the consignor. When the consignor has any non-conformity requirements, he must inform the foreign agent, and can arrange it after obtaining the permission of the foreign agent. Otherwise, the shipper's request cannot be accepted. Especially when you first operate the consignor's goods, you should pay more attention. To avoid unnecessary trouble.
After obtaining the permission instructions of the foreign agent, you can arrange the customs declaration of the trailer. Of course, the stable cargo that is regularly shipped can inform the other party of the voyage information while booking the cabin. At the same time, you need to ask the other party, what format of HBL is issued, usually, it will be the HBL provided by the foreign agent.
During the shipment of goods, if there is any cargo status update and any problems encountered, it is necessary to communicate with foreign agents in a timely manner.
After the goods are shipped and shipped, after the bill of lading is issued, you need to ask the foreign agent what the handling charge is, and then send it to the foreign agent together with MBL, HBL, PSS (profitsharesheet), and other customs clearance documents (if the agent asks you if you want). .
In addition, since there may be multiple cooperative agents in the same country, do not confuse the goods between different agents to avoid unnecessary embarrassment. If your company has its own branch in the country, you can't disclose the branch information to foreign agents. This will make the foreign agent feel that you are competing with him and affecting future cooperation.
What is the risk of specifying the goods?
Since the bill of lading issued to the consignor by the freight forwarder is HBL (Bill of Lading) instead of MBL (Boat Company Bill of Lading), HBL does not really achieve the purpose of controlling the cargo right, so it will cause the foreign agent to "no delivery", that is, abroad. In the absence of HBL, the agent relies on its own MBL to take the goods from the shipping company and then delivers the goods to the consignee, resulting in a situation in which the consignor's payment is empty.
Of course, there are very few cases where there is no single delivery. But when exporters first cooperate with importers, they still need to pay attention to this issue. The consignee should be urged to pay the purchase price as soon as possible.
