1 Missionary Expediters  Advice & counsel  Proper Documentation  Tenders (USAID & Industry provisions)  Bookings or Charter Parties  Call forward and operating requirements  Arrange inspections, notifications  Execute forms & documents  Freight Forwarders “husband” the cargo

2 Husbanding the Cargo, A-Z  Segments typically are  Origin to Port - rail cars  Port Shed - outturn reports  Vessel - on board counts, VLO  Discharge to wharf  Port Shed  Onward carriage  Receivers, know where you take charge.  Local customary rules apply

3 Receiving Food Aid  Be ready. Delays mean vulnerabilities to loss.  Customs entry  Pre-wired  Document review, even copies  The parties to meet  CHB  Surveyor  Carrier Agent  Port Authority  Pre-discharge meeting

4 The Documents  Bill of Lading is the standard  Counts  Terms of discharge (who devans?)  Manage by this batch (ND numbers)  Other documents for customs, for safety  Declaration of Values (invoices)  Packing Lists  Safety Certificates (Phyto-sanitary certificates, fumigation certificates, etc.)  Timely & proper documents = Prompt releases

5 The Local Stuff  Know the flow, hence the stream of Transfer Documents  Carrier to Wharf (tally sheets)  Wharf through shed (stevedore docs)  Shed to Truck/Rail (Delivery Orders)  In-Transit (Inland BLs)  Terminuses enroute  Delivered (Warehouse Receipts)  Organized files of signed Transfer Documents, clean vs. exceptions  Delays = Loss & penalty

6 Notice of Responsibility  By Cargo Owner, not surveyor  Per ocean BL, per inland BL  A claim to the one responsible for that segment flow  Not confrontational  Don’t wait to “prove” it. Can update.  Early notice encourages cooperation in mitigation  Becomes basis for subrogation to USDA, and reimbursement of expenses.

7 Issues to Consider  Cargo insurance for onward carriages NOT under Through BLs, where carrier is NOT negligent. (not necessary on TBLs, since CCC covers.  Where Call Forwards are for long interims, have destination storage (e.g. 6 months of food can’t be consumed at once). Don’t count on long transits.
