Export

Export procedures:

Bill of lading clausing, documentation – No special clauses / restrictions apply. 

 

Special Customs Requirements – An export declaration must be filed with customs and this is usually done by the shipper/exporter themselves. However, if necessary we can arrange it for you. Please ask our Customer Service team for the current prices. 

 

Export restrictions:

  • Weight and measurement – For general information on weight and measurement restrictions please contact your local Seago Line office. The general road limitations are 48 mt for truck, chassis, cargo and tare weight of container, which in reality means that most containers can be loaded to the max payload. Special cargoes – There are generally no restrictions, though for trucking to inland points special permits may be needed (dependent on the actual oversize, so please inquire). For dangerous cargo the dangerous cargo papers must be provided and approved at the time the booking is placed. Please ask our Customer Service team for exact details.
