Bill of lading (B/L) is a document of concern, which means the ownership of cargo. Moreover, it is very critical and required document for taking over cargo from shipping company at destination. So it is directly forwarded to our agency at destination, while a copy of B/L and packing list is forwarded specially to the owner of cargo.

When container vessel arrives at destination port, the cargo is stored in container freight station (CFS) on site at destination via cargo work and bonded transportation before customs clearance of imported goods. Most countries around the world exempt cargo for move from import duties, while some countries like China, Vietnam and India levy duties on such cargo.

  • Delivery Service

When customs clearance is completed, the cargo is delivered to destined home at date scheduled with its consignor, and our agency personnel assemble any disassembled furniture and place it at desired positions.

If necessary, you can use extra MAID SERVICE available from our agencies.

Calculation of Moving Costs

The Cargo for move to abroad is carried largely via ocean or air freight, but if you want to deliver small quantity of cargo promptly, its carriage via air transport. There are 3 ways of fixing freight. “Origin service charge”, ‘Ocean/Air freight”, and ‘destination charge.”


This charge covers the expenses required from packing at consignor’s home to shipping at home port(or airport), including packing charges, in land forwarding charges, harbor(airport) improvement expenses, customs clearance fee(freight charges) and documentation fee.





When extra container is in use Full Container load, ocean freight is fixed based on 20′ or 40′ container, and if container is carried in combination with other cargos Less Container Load, he freight is fixed based on cubic meter (CBM = m’).


- The freight is fixed based on cargo weight (kg), and if a cargo weighs less 45.0kg, minimum rate is applied to it, while special rate shall be applied for over 1000 kg.

- For light weight cargo, the freight is fixed based on volume weight. Here, the weight is calculated in the following way: (Ex.) If a 1 m3 (1 CBM) is calculated in volume weight, its weight amounts to 100 cm x 100cm x 100 cm I 6000 = 167.0 kg.


This is the charge incurred on site at destination, which also includes harbor improvement expenses, stevedoring charges, freight charges for import, container freight, home delivery freight and labor cost incurred after container arrives destination port(or airport). In addition, destination charge is rated at total sum of the above 3 charges basically in CBM (m’).

   CBM (Cubic Meter) means 1m(width) x 1m(length) x 1m(height). It is also a specification prepared for estimating total volume, when packed cargo is loaded into container. Once there are different shipping freights and destination charges applied among each country and city, unit charge per CBM varies naturally. In addition, the unit charge per CBM also varies in charge category such as ROOM TO ROOM, ROOM TO DOOR and ROOM TO PORT.

Total amount of freight is equal to (TOTAL CBM x unit cost I CBM) plus insurance.
