Clean On board Bill of Lading Vs. Shipped On board Bill of LadingOne of the readers of this web blog requested recently to explain the term Clean On Board Bill of Lading and Shipped on board Bill of Lading.

 

This is one of the common doubts among the traders to differentiate Shipped on Board Bill of Lading and Clean On Board Bill of Lading.  Are shipped on board bill of lading and clean on board bill of Lading same? If different, what are the difference between Clean On Board Bill of Lading and Shipped On Board Bill of Lading?

 

 

What is Shipped On board Bill of Lading? How does Shipped On board Bill of Lading work?


I have discussed about the step by step movement of goods from seller’s premise to buyer’s premise in detail in a couple of articles in same website.  In an export trade, once after completion of necessary customs export formalities at exporter’s country, the goods are handed over to Carrier for transportation to buyer’s destination.  If cargo is moved by sea, the carrier issues a receipt of goods to the shipper which is called Bill of Lading.  If said goods have not been gone on board the vessel, the bill of lading shows ‘Received for shipment’, without mentioning ‘Shipped On Board’.   If the shipper needs to mention ‘Shipped On Board’ on Bill of Lading, such bill of lading is issued once after the shipment gone ‘On Board’ the vessel.    Shipped On Board bill of lading may be demanded by buyer as per mutually agreed contract of sale or it may be required for the exporter to claim different export benefits from various government agencies.

 

What is Clean On board Bill of Lading?   How does  Clean On board Bill of Lading work?


Clean On Board Bill of Lading is commonly mentioned under a contract of Letter of Credit between buyer and seller in terms of Transport Document under shipment of sale carries.


I have discussed about Clean Bill of Lading under my article on ‘different types of bill of lading’ in this web blog.


Let us discuss about Clean Bill of Lading and then Clean On board Bill of Lading.  A clean bill of Lading means, the carrier of goods receives cargo with good condition with proper packaging.    In other words, the cargo received under a clean bill of lading has no clause, notation or remarks on the quantity or quality of goods as well as packing.  Once after issuing a clean bill of lading by carrier, the responsibility on poor packing, damage of goods and other handling defective falls on carrier. 
Once the goods received with good conditions with proper packing gone on board the vessel, the carrier issues Clean On board Bill of Lading.  Clean On board Bill of Lading certifies that the cargo on board has no negative clause, notation or remarks on the quantity, quality or packaging of goods.   In other words, when issuing a clean on board bill of lading, the carrier certifies that the goods gone on board the vessel are in good conditions with proper packing.  You can also read Difference between SHIPPED ON BOARD and RECIEVED  FOR SHIPMENT.

I had my household container after I moved to mainland US. Since it was used items and we wanted to recycle instead so we book our container from overseas. When it arrived to US territory first port was NY. Some federal officer specifically order to pre-mature discharge my container and then re-loaded for the port of destination Houston. This process caught me in bills over $7,000 while my actual shipping was $2500 and cargo was estimated to be $5000 after arrival to the port of destination I am again asked to go through the VACIS examination. Where should I go to complain and get justice.

In response to Kareem.. Kareem, US customs or Federal officers will generally pull out containers only on any suspicion.. Your nominated customs broker in USA should be able to explain to you as to why a VACIS examination was required.. Was this cargo originally destined to be transhipped via NY to final destination Houston or was this ship calling Houston directly.. In my opinion, it shouldn't cost so much money for the inspection and reloading.. Usually a VACIS inspection is in the region of USD.800/-.. USD.7000/- seems quite excessive for the inspection and reloading.. Your customs broker should explain.. Hariesh Manaadiar http://shippingandfreightresource.com
