Shipping in Italy

Get up-to-date local information about import procedures and restrictions, demurrage and detention, container pick-ups and more.

Procedure

First Step

All cargoes, even if coming from EU Countries, are supposed to be non-EU and declared before vessel arrival accordingly.

To overrule a/m presumption, T2L, as evidence of EU status, has to be submitted to Seagoline by Customer before import custom manifest submission to first Italian port called by vessel.

If T2L not submitted in due time, manifest amendment fee applies and extracosts (such as storages, detentions, etc) might accrue while manifest is being updated.

  • Contact our Import Department to check the ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival) of your containers
  • Ask for the total amount of collect charges (including demurrage and detention, if any)

Waybill

  • If you are the Consignee of the Shipment, send us via e-mail the release request and the copy of the bank transfer

  • If you are not the Consignee, send us the release copy in your favor and a copy of the bank transfer

  • The release order will be sent to you via e-mail


Original Bill of Lading

  • The original Bill of Lading duly endorsed has to be surrendered to our offices or to our agents

  • The copy of the bank transfer has to be sent us via e-mail

  • The release order will be sent to you via e-mail


Carrier Haulage Delivery

  • Contact our Import Department in order to obtain Inland Haulage Tariffs or in order to check if the Shipper has already paid up to the final delivery. RCO (rail combined) options available only from terminals whose rail-connection with destination area is active; in case of any doubt, please contact Customer Service to ascertain which terminal your shipment will be discharged in and actual delivery mode availability

  • Pre-advice Import Dept. about special requirements (if any) and check compatibility with prepaid inland service (if any)

  • Agree the delivery mode (rail or truck) 72 working hours before vessel arrival; otherwise, additional charges might apply

  • Agree with the Import Department the date of delivery, confirm the Customs readiness and send full delivery instruction

  • For all-truck delivery, instruction has to be sent the day before inland haulage date within 11 am. Demurrage and detention costs (if any) have to be paid until the door delivery date included

  • The release order will be automatically sent to the transport company directly from Seago Line

  • Custom brokers arranging Custom formalities must ensure units will be smoothly released by terminals (e.g. local IT system update, local duties / storage payment, etc.)

Demurrage / Detention / Free time

Combined Demurrage & Detention and Storage

Moving forward our setup in Italy will consist of two elements; Storage and Combined Demurrage & Detention.

This means you will have one combined free time period and compensation for utilisation of equipment inside and outside of terminals or depots, referred to as Combined Demurrage & Detention. 

Compensation for storage related to use of terminal or depot facilities will be charged separately.
