To know the Commercial and Transportation terms is very important to run any business. Specially which business mainly done Internationally.
Today I am going to published some terms of Shipping which is very essential for apparel business.
The person whose name appears on the bill of lading or airway bill as the party to whom the goods are to be delivered by the carrier.
FCL (full container load}
A fully loaded container which may be in weight or cubic measurement terms, contracted by one shipper, and conveyed to one consignee and to one destination.
LCL (less container load)
A consignment of cargo which does not fill a full container, grouped with other consignments for the same destination.
This is the person whose name appears on the bill of lading or airway bill as the party who has contracted the carrier to dispatch the goods.
These are marks essential to identifying cargo and linking that cargo with specific documents. Because these marks are important as identifiers, the marks and numbers should be as simple as possible. Shipping marks include the abbreviated name of buyer, reference number, destination, package number, and container number (if applicable).
Garment on Hangers (GOH)
The garments are packed into the container on hangers
Flat Packed Container (FPC)
