Suggestion for Customer in Special Cargo Loading Request
Approval or Rejection : At special cargo loading request, customers should submit application to related sales office by at least 4 working days before a vessel arrives at loading port and carriers should notify whether requested special cargo loading is approved or not within 1 working day. In case of proper reasons, a carrier can reject the request of special cargo loading and notify the reason of rejection in written.
Concerning damage-expected cargo due to seawater and others by loading on deck, under-deck top stowage should be certainly required. In evitable case of on-deck stowage by customer's request, especially expensive cargo should be insured with S.O.L (Ship Owners Liability).
Customers should send Drawing/Sketch/Photograph to carriers for operation in loading/discharging port if necessary.
