How to Avoid Lost Cabin Fees

During the export of LCL by shipping, after 11:00 noon on the working day before the order cut off, the goods could not be loaded on the ship in time due to the booker’s reasons, resulting in the vacant space of the LCL company. Therefore, the LCL company will charge the booker. The standard for calculating the compensation fee and the loss of cabin fee is as follows:

Specific calculation formula: Loss of space fee = booking fee cubic x (FCL sea freight + FCL departure port fee) / standard cubic number. Remarks: Standard square quantity: 25/20’50/40’60/40’HQ.

Common reasons and preventive measures for loss of fares:

1. The owner’s cargo is late into the warehouse, or the owner temporarily cancels the cargo without canceling the booking in time. Prevention: All international freight forwarders are requested to communicate with customers regularly before the delivery date and provide timely feedback. And notify the owner, he is responsible for the notification, otherwise it will result in loss of shipping fees.

2. A larger proportion of super square / reduced square / overweight. Prevention: All international freight forwarders are requested to request the cargo owner to make the booking as far as possible in line with the actual goods. If there is any change, please notify in time.

3. After the goods are put into the warehouse, it is found that the characteristics or specifications of the goods themselves have problems, which makes it impossible to carry, such as “liquid/dangerous goods/overweight goods”. Prevention: Please inform the owner of the international freight forwarder, the company does not undertake liquid, dangerous, semi-dangerous goods, overweight goods need to be confirmed in advance.

4. The customs inspection cannot make the goods exported in time. Prevention: All international freight forwarders are requested to require the owner to have the same customs declaration form, documents, and goods. If you have any questions, please reply to our customs declarers in a timely and clear manner. If you need customs cooperation, please try to ensure that the goods leave the port in time. LCL Goods refer to small-ticket goods, filled with a full box (20’/40/45) of goods.

In general, the bulk consolidation carrier collects and consolidates goods at the container freight station or inland station respectively, and then consolidates the goods of two or more tickets into one container. Similarly, at the destination container freight station or Unpacked and shipped separately at inland stations.

For such goods, the carrier shall undertake the packing and unpacking operations, and the unpacking and unpacking charges are still borne by the cargo party. The carrier responsibility of LCL is basically the same as that of traditional general cargo transportation.
