Less Paper, Less Effort

Published on 07 January 2019

Don’t you wish you could reduce your paperwork? 


Sealand - A Maersk Company is pleased to bring you Simplified Freight Invoices. Starting on 19th January 2019 your freight invoicing will experience a face-lift for most countries (see exceptions in the bottom).


How does it work today?

If there is a change to the price on your shipment, previously we would cancel the original invoice and then issue a completely new invoice with the revised charge and no explanation of how it linked to the original. Some customers also received a credit note.

Current process:  
Original Invoice + New adjusted invoice with no link to the original


New invoicing process
From 19th January onwards, we will improve our process to serve you better. You will keep the original invoice, and we will issue either a credit note or a supplementary invoice with improved information detailing the reason for the change.

New process: 
Original Invoice + Credit Note/Supplementary with link and details


The above example shows an original invoice (left) where the Basic Ocean Freight was underbilled by $50.00. A supplementary invoice (right) for the $50 is then created. The supplementary invoice will reference the original invoice number and amount as seen on the right.

At any time you can find your invoice copies on SealandMaersk.com under MyFinance. And while you’re there, save more time by paying directly with your bank account or a credit card (Visa/Mastercard).

We are continuously working to improve your experience. We appreciate your business and look forward to continuing working with you in the future.

If you have any queries please contact your local office.


Thanks for your support!
