  • Transcript

    • 1. International Logistics
      Insurance and Labelling
    • 2. Learning Objectives
    • 3. Labelling
      conveys information from shipper/handler, warehouse, right through to consumer
      a requirement in many importing countries that the products be labelled in the country's language when selling to the national market.
      requirements vary from country to country
      it is important to follow closely the buyer's labelling instructions
      in the labelling of food products and drugs, besides the country of origin marking, it is often a requirement that the names of the foreign manufacturer and local distributor, the ingredients and the expiry date be clearly marked on the package
    • 4. Language
      Local language of destination needed in order to clear customs and ensure proper handling.
      Support with international markings because other nationals may handle cargo in-transit.
    • 5. Markings – Hazardous Materials / Dangerous Goods
      adopted by all International Maritime Organization
      (IMO) and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) member countries to smooth the flow of these types of materials in waterborne and air commerce.
    • 6. Markings - Reference
      identify the shipper (exporter) and the consignee (importer) of a shipment
      exporter/importer names and addresses may be shown on labels or stenciled onto cartons or crates
      address must be consistent with the information shown on the bill of lading, invoice, and other documents
      include weight and cube so that the shipment itself can be matched more easily to the bill of lading issued by a forwarding agent or carrier (steamship line, airline, rail, or trucking company)
      • markings will aid the freight forwarder or carrier in determining freight and handling costs
      • 7. indicate the country of origin on each export overpack carton or crate (for example, Made in Canada) to decrease customs clearance delays
    • Markings – Handling*
      easy-to-understand internationally recognized symbols quickly convey special handling requirements – even when the handler can't read English
      helps reduce potential loss and damage from mishandling
      *international marking for non-hazardous materials only
    • 8. Hazardous Goods & Organizations Concerned
    • 9. Insurance
    • 10. Insurance
    • 11. Insured value – retail price or your cost of replacement?
      It is advisable for you to insure cargo at a minimum of the "commercial invoice value" or "Cost of goods and Freight," the CIF value. Most manufacturers and shippers insure cargo for CIF VALUE plus 10%.On international shipments the terms of the Irrevocable Letter of Credit (LOC) may dictate insured value. It is advisable to insure international cargo at CIF plus 10 and the cost of freight.
