Notice " Hamburg port" ATB number & dettail cargo information
(Dec 10, 2012)
Dear Valued customers,

We are kindly requesting your special attention to bookings for shipments arriving / transferring at Germany ports. As previously posted on our website on 22th Nov, 2012, Hamburg port of Germany will be changed from Freeport zone to general Seaport from 1st Jan of 2013.

December of 2012 is a grace-period prior to the formal effective date for better stabilization of the process. Germany customs already started to monitor manifested data in detail. To avoid any problem in cargo release at destination, we would like to request your kind help. The major changes of customer side are as below.

1.       ATB Number

Customers in destination need ATB number for their inbound manifest. This is the approval number received when carrier declares manifest to German customs before vessel arrival.

A.      We added this item in email related to Full Container Release of Germany.

B.      Also, we are about to open a new function in our website for customers to check ATB number with better convenience. (HJS web> e-Service> Inbound> ATB Number Check)

2.       Cargo Details in Commodity Level

Detailed information of each commodity item level should be clearly declared.

A.      Cargo details (Package/ Weight/ Measure/ HS Code) of each commodity in one container should be clearly inserted in all related columns without missing. All items described in B/L description should be inserted in Container Information.

-        “Marks & Description” is printed out on B/L face.

-        “Container Information” is manifested to customs.

B.      In case some customers can not submit the required data with limitation of available tools such as direct EDI, please send the data via FAX or e-mail.

If customers fail to provide required information to our side, customs penalties or cargo release delay can be resulted in Hamburg port. Hanjin Shipping holds no responsibility for such negative results which is occurred due to lack of the cargo/container information from customer side. If you have any other questions please contact our nearest offices.
