What is the operation process of SOC box (self-owned box)? How much do you know?

The full name of SOC is shipper own container, own box. It is the shipper who prepares the boxes by himself, and there is no big difference in operation. Some shipping companies accept them, while others do not. Generally speaking, a part of the sea freight will be charged less for self-owned boxes, which is also related to the shipping company.

And what we usually use is COC box, the full name of COC box is CARRIER OWNER CONTAINER, shipping company box.

1. Booking. The SOC box is the owner's own box, mainly because some customers use their own boxes to load and export in order to avoid the use of shipping company containers or because they have boxes; if the customer does not have his own box, he only You can rent a batch of containers as your own boxes, so most of the SOC boxes are one-way boxes or boxes bought by the owner. However, since the SOC box does not use the shipping company's own box, the shipping company loses a lot in terms of box usage fees, so the SOC box is not very easy to book space!

Note: This kind of SOC box is rarely contacted at ordinary times. When booking with the shipowner, you must confirm the freight rate, including any specific fees, especially the RMB fee. It’s easy to be taken advantage of by people because they don’t understand. You can use CY-CY clauses, but people sell FI-FO clauses, which will cost you a lot of money. up.

2. Receive orders. After receiving the bill of lading, check the bill of lading to see if there are any special terms and requirements for the bill of lading, and check with the shipping company one by one whether it can be displayed or whether it can be done.

The first thing to pay attention to is the Chinese product name of the goods, HS.CODE, if it is a general chemical product, you need to provide MSDS, as well as the transportation condition certificate, the contact information of SH and CN, and check whether SH is a freight forwarder or a logistics company. If yes, provide a copy of the NVOCC qualification certificate; if not, no booking will be accepted unless SH is changed.

Check the weight of the goods again, depending on the shipping company and individual ports, the weight that can be accepted is also different. Generally, the small container should be controlled at 25 tons, and the large container should be super high at 26 tons, but individual cases are treated individually. What needs to be implemented is whether there will be an overweight fee and whether it can be displayed on the bill of lading according to the correct weight.

1. Field station. For special boxes such as SOC boxes, the shipping company only provides storage space and does not limit the station. At this time, the box can be placed at a station that is more cooperative with you, but it should be noted that the goods must be placed at the station. The SOC box is marked on the paper, and the shipping company code of the port where the box is collected is written.

2. Bill of lading. Confirm whether to issue the master order or the sub-order. If the sub-order is issued, ask the customer whether there is an agent at the port of destination to control the box. If there is no agent at the port of destination, do you need us to arrange an agent and other information.

3. Issue warehouse receipts. Like SOC boxes, the shipping company does not issue warehouse receipts, so it needs to confirm with the customer whether the customer will issue the warehouse receipt or we arrange to issue the warehouse receipt. If we are responsible for issuing the warehouse receipt according to the schedule, we must contact the agent and confirm the warehouse receipt agency fee, and When the goods are cut off at the port, the EDI warehouse receipt information generated by the station will be sent to the agent, and accurate information such as the goods SH, CN, product name, cargo marking, mark, and piece weight will be provided. If there are multiple cabinets, detailed cartoning details should be provided—with Box seal number, other operation steps are the same as ordinary goods.
