Voorbeeld uit de praktijk

A vessel with your products has to go from Argentina to India. How do you handle this? 

First, you nominate the loading intention to your supplier according to the contract conditions. Then select the broker, agent and surveyor in Argentina and provide them with all the necessary information of the loading. During this process, it is your responsibility that the correct documents are issued. When everything is ready, the ship leaves for India. During this journey, you make sure you send the documents to the banks of the buyers in India. When everything is approved they can authorize the payment for the products. When you have received the payment, you can order the discharge of the vessel. You select agents and when necessary surveyors. They make sure the discharge goes smoothly. During discharge, you keep in touch with all parties involved and assist to solve any possible problems (shortages, quality issues, delays). When all costs are paid and issues solved you close the shipment.
