What is a CBM?
CBM stands for cubic meter. In ocean cargo, CBM is the metric system unit used to measure the volume dimension of a shipment.
How do we calculate volume weight for air cargo?
Volume weight can easily be determined by the following formula: Vol Wt in LB: [Length (in) x Width (in) x Height (in)] /166
Do I need to file AMS for my shipments to the USA?
All shipments must be manifested overseas via AMS at least 24 hours prior to departure. AMS can be filed by the carrier, NVOCC.
We ship ocean containers from Beijing - but shipper sends Bill of Lading indicating the port of Xingang.
What is the difference?
Tianjin's port of Xingang is the primary seaport for shipments from Beijing. (Note: Be clear on trade terms with the factory in specifying the port of loading)
What is the X-ray exam for?
Since 2003, US Customs has implemented a security program that uses sophisticated, non-intrusive X-ray machines to examine ocean containers at major ports. If your container has been selected for X-ray exam, be aware of the additional exam fee (est. USD115) and delay in release by Customs.
What is RFID?
A: RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is the latest supply chain tracking technology in the industry. The technology has been around since the 70's but its high utilization cost has so far prevented its mass acceptance by the commercial sector. Now, with Walmart, Target, Gillette and other giant retailers supporting the use of RFID, many manufacturers are evaluating and some, moving towards the implementation of RFID tracking systems into their supply chain production. RFID simply allows for more information to be processed compared to the traditional 2-D (even 3-D) bar codes. Active RFID tags will even allow the reader to input data to the tag.
