Описание доставки грузов:

Delivery from Southeast Asia
The most common delivery scheme is the delivery of sea containers to the sender on FOB or CIF terms. Our agents throughout Southeast Asia will fully take care of arranging with your plant about the time of shipment, the necessary equipment and the preparation of export documents. Below are several delivery options:
Through the port of Vostochny. Registration can take place directly in the Far East, or VTT is issued. The cargo is sent by rail to the destination, where customs clearance takes place. The railway itself is a customs carrier.
Through Finland. Cargo in containers arrives at the ports of Finland: Helsinki, Hamina, Kotka. Further, transit documents are issued for the export of this cargo to the territory of Russia. Many of our customers use our warehouse to reshape their cargo and make complex shipments. This way is most convenient when the client does not want to immediately invest in customs payments, but at the same time it is convenient for him to store the goods in close proximity to the Russian Federation. After all, delivery from Finland to St. Petersburg or Moscow, including customs clearance, takes 3-5 days. Thus, the client does not invest working capital in customs payments, but stores the cargo near the border. When a new order for cargo appears, delivery and customs clearance are carried out as quickly as possible. We will provide you with any rolling stock for the export of goods from Finland: trailers, platforms, refs. We also rent a warehouse in Helsinki on our own. We will also arrange all transit documents for you.
Through the port of St. Petersburg. This type of transportation should be given special attention. Few of the clients, when sending cargo from Southeast Asia to the port of St. Petersburg, initially think about where it will end up. However, the differences can be significant. Various sea lines come to different terminals of the port of St. Petersburg: PKT, PLP, Kronstadt, Bronka, Rybny Port, Neva Metal. All these terminals have completely different operating conditions. For the convenience of our customers, we conduct a comparative analysis of storage rates and operating conditions of these terminals.

Also, we have learned to work very well in Novorossiysk. We are ready to provide you with a service for customs clearance and delivery.
Delivery of goods from Europe
Sea shipping. In organizing the delivery of goods from Europe, we choose the best route depending on the customer's wishes in time period and price range.
For countries close to the maritime borders, the most optimal is shipping through the ports of France, Germany, Holland. We will swiftly give a container under the stuffing in your plant, issue all export declarations, deliver the container to the port of departure and put it on the ship. The major European ports are Dunkirk, Le Havre, Rotterdam, Hamburg, Bremerhaven, Copenhagen, Gdynia, Gdansk, Genoa, Rimini, Barcelona, etc. Schedules of traffic of vessels are known in advance, so we can always correctly calculate time of arrival in St. Petersburg. Transit time of delivery from European cities to the port of St. Petersburg ranges from 10 to 21 days depending on the remoteness of the European city from the port and schedule of vessels traffic. A great advantage in these transportations is that you can coordinate the weight of cargo up to 24 tons, what is impossible for road transport.

Car delivery. This type of delivery is the fastest among European countries. We have trailers from 20 to 120 m3. We will deliver the trailer to your plant for loading on the day you specify. Further, on our expedition, we can issue all the necessary documents - export declarations, CMR, etc. Your plant does not need to take on any functions other than loading. On average, delivery from European countries to St. Petersburg or Moscow takes from 5 to 8 days.

Mixed shipping. Basically, this type of delivery is used by customers from European countries, which are as far as possible from Russia, and the delivery time for us is long. For example, these are Italy and Spain. In this case, we apply the following scheme. A sea container of the cubic capacity required by the client is supplied to the plant. Loading cargo. Next, the container is loaded onto a railway platform and sent to the port of Europe, from where we can make the most profitable shipment. Paperwork can be done locally or at the port of departure. This scheme allows you to greatly save time, since sending by rail to the main ports of Europe takes only 2 days. Further, it is important to promptly book a place on the ship and then the term of such a shipment will be no more than 12-14 days.
Algorithm of the work of the manager of the multimodal department
  • Accept a request from a customer for transportation.
  • Think over the best route and send requests to agents, lines, forwarders, carriers to receive a rate. When placing requests for quotation of rates from the line, it is necessary to clarify the information on the terminal of arrival (free storage period), under the terms of demurrage/detention. Broadcast this information to the client in a commercial offer.
  • Analysis of received rates, selection of rates from several offers.
  • Compose a quotation for a client or send a bid in response to a client's letter. At the same time, it is MANDATORY to indicate the validity period of the rate, make a note that the rate is fixed at the time of the ship (train) departure. The client must be notified in advance of all price changes. When forming a commercial offer, it is necessary to take into account the % for the conversion, which will need to be added when invoicing for the transportation to the client. Usually it is 3% (by agreement).
  • It is necessary to discuss with the client in advance whether he is ready to pay 3% for the purchase of currency and conversion. If the client requires payment only for the Central Bank, then these costs must immediately be included in the freight.
  • When setting rates, take into account the Forwarder's Remuneration, since we work under a Feasibility Study contract for a fee. Usually, 3500 rubles per container for new customers. With a large volume of containers, a decrease is possible.
  • If the client agrees to transportation, it is necessary to check the existence of a valid agreement between the client and "Mobile-SPB" (in some cases, "Broker M"), as well as the existence of an agreement between Broker M and the service provider. In the absence of contracts, send a request to the legal department for their conclusion.
  • Request data from the client for placing an order (Contact data of the sender, e-mail, phone, Skype, etc., weight, volume, type of container, reference/invoice/order number to identify the cargo from the Sender, date of readiness of the cargo).

  • If the client asks to insure the cargo, check with him the invoice value of the cargo, fill out an application to the insurance company based on the data of the transport document and send it to the insurance specialist and / or directly to the specialist of the Capital Policy insurance company.
  • When the container number appears, enter the order into the 1C program, where it is necessary to indicate the number of the counter, bill of lading, date of loading, date of arrival at the end point, date of the planned closing of the order (the last day of the month in which the cargo arrives), route, customer reference ( if it is customer requirement).
  • Enter the data on the new shipment into the EXCEL table of the multimodal department, regularly update the data in the table "Cargo".
  • Track the path of the container and inform the client about the arrival at the transshipment port, final destination (station, port).
  • Before the container arrives at the final destination, check with the agent in advance for the availability of a telex release (SWB), if they were issued. In the presence of originals of the bill of lading, inform the client of the address of our forwarder for shipment.
  • A week before the container arrives at the final destination, if the cargo is subject to Phyto Quarantine Control or CCM (this information is provided by the FEA manager who carries out this delivery), the manager of the multimodal department must inform the line or another forwarder that it is necessary to put the CFC / CCC stamp on the bill of lading! !!
  • Check receipt of this stamp on the bill of lading before the cargo arrives!
  • Send the client a form of power of attorney for forwarding and track the receipt of the originals of the power of attorney.

  • Upon arrival of the container, check the DO, DO1 and send information about the unloading to the FEA manager and the client.
  • Check payment of line or railway station bills for local charges, if they are not included in the freight.
  • Clarify with the client the address of the delivery warehouse, contact person, contact phone number, opening hours, if necessary, clarify technical issues and requirements for the car (short platform, hitch, etc.)
  • Request an export release before or after the GTD is issued.
  • Request from our forwarder TTN for export, indicating the data received from the client.
  • After the container is delivered to the client at the warehouse, check the costs incurred while being at the port or at the railway station, enter all costs into the order in 1C and put the “Transport costs paid” marker. This will be the signal for the finance manager to issue the final invoice to the client.
