What do you need to do when sending and accepting the cargo?
In order for the cargo shipment to be successful and efficient, it is important to ensure certain conditions during the acceptance, performance and delivery of the cargo. The cargo sender must make sure that all requirements are met for the cargo to be delivered successfully. It is equally important for all conditions and requirements to be met during the cargo acceptance.
If necessary, we can provide consultation regarding cargo packaging, insuring, as well as the required actions in case the cargo is damaged or lost.
In order for cargo delivery to be successful, we have prepared instructions for receiving and delivering the cargo, which will help you to implement the indicated actions.
- The sender must always be warned in advance if there are size/mass limitations for the vehicles in the cargo loading address.
