HS COMMODITY CODE IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED AT TIME OF BOOKING REQUEST
Dear Valued Customer,
First of all, we would like to express our sincere thanks for your kind co-operation & supporting us so far.
In the view of the requirement that actual COMMODITY CODE is a must for multiple PODs, CMA CGM wishes to remind our customers in regard to the increase of misdeclaration/ mismatching HS CODE between Booking and Shipping instruction which will impact to the delay in B/L release and Customs’ fines/penalties.
Therefore, we seek your support to mention HS code - which will be matched as much as possible with your shipping instruction - on booking instructions to CMA/ ANL/ CNC. This will help to shortest time of booking confirmation/ draft B/L and to avoid the risk of Customs’ fines/ penalties on the mismatching.
It’s applicable for all booking channels, cargo types and destinations
We look forward to your support and co-operation in this matter so that we may better serve your needs and ensure full compliance.
CMA CGM Vietnam JSC
