Procedures

Основные правила приема контейнеров в сток клиента:

  • Прием контейнеров, прибывших к воротам терминала по инструкции, организуется силами экспортного клиента.
  • В случае отбраковки контейнеров Терминал ставит переадресацию в товаросопроводительных документах в соответствии с общепринятыми правилами и действующим законодательством. Адрес переадресации заранее письменно согласуется экспортным клиентом с отделом оборудования Маэрск.
  • Экспортный клиент несет всю ответственность за корректный прием оборудования с момента прибытия а/м с контейнером к воротам терминала.
  • Экспортный клиент несет материальную ответственность за оборудование с момента его приема в рамках Генерального обязательства и действующего законодательства.
  • Исчисление экспортного детеншена начинается с момента приема контейнера в сток в соответствии с Генеральным обязательством.
  • В случае отказа от приема оборудования на Терминал, некорректной переадресации, сверхнормативных задержек по обработке контейнеров и др. экспортный клиент обязуется возместить все возникшие расходы Линии, связанные с перемещением контейнеров в надлежащий сток, с компенсацией простоев и задержек импортного клиента, и оплатить штраф в размере 300 долларов США за каждый контейнер.
  • Экспортный клиент обязуется ежедневно (включая выходные дни) присылать сводку по принятым контейнерам в форме, предоставленной отделом оборудования на адрес RUSOPSINTEQU@maersk.com.
  • Экспортный клиент понимает, что в случае сдачи контейнеров в стоки не Маэрск (стоки Экспортного клиента), Линия не может 100% гарантировать сдачу оборудования в полном объеме к оговоренному сроку, т. К. процесс сдачи происходит под контролем Импортного клиента, а не Линии.
  • В случае нехватки оборудования в стоках Экспортного клиента к оговоренному сроку, Линия готова рассмотреть возможность выдачи контейнеров с линейных терминалов (БРК, БРК2, Роконорд и др.), чтобы покрыть запрос в полном объеме. Вывоз в таком случае осуществляется силами Экспортного клиента.
  • Просим Вас учесть, что если в заявках на выделение порожнего оборудования на текущую неделю указано меньшее количество контейнеров, чем при размещении FC на эту неделю, то невостребованные контейнеры автоматически не переносятся на следующую календарную неделю. Поэтому просим Вас своевременно переносить Ваши заявки.

PLP terminal: Export Documentation and Bookings

Maersk Line wishes to advise our customers to pay special attention to the documents and bookings of export containers from PLP terminal.

In order to submit timely information to PLP terminal to secure loading of export containers on preliminary planned vessel and to avoid additional expenses related to re-booking and extra moves, please kindly follow the below mentioned procedure:

1. Please inform us about the date of full export containers arrival to PLP terminal not later than 12.00 of the day before planned gate-in date (for example, if gate-in to PLP is planned on the 14th, then please inform us about same prior 12-00 on the 13th).

2. For railway shipments please remember to advise us container numbers prior above mentioned deadline. Container number should be linked to particular booking number. It is necessary to advise Forwarder at PLP per particular booking as well. A forwarder in a railway bill or in a CMR should be the same as the forwarder stated in the booking. Therefore when sending export booking request to Maersk Line, please always inform us who shall be the forwarder at PLP. PLP documentation centre will not release original export documents to the forwarder until this information is clarified.

3. All amendments per bookings, which are being requested after loading of electronic information to PLP database (ePortal), cause additional expenses. Amount of those expenses depends on container status and availability of information on ePortal (for example, change of container numbers per booking, change of Forwarder, bookings split/combine, change of discharge port, etc).

4. Send us a written confirmation from shipper/forwarder that railway bills for empty platforms have been made in ETRAN system, not less than 3 days prior ETA of export containers by railway to PLP terminal.
