Solve the problem of lost documents in international freight In international import and export trade, the loss of documents may occur, whether it is due to poor production and storage, or lost during express delivery. When documents are lost, we can take the following measures to solve it. Loss of customs declaration documents: If documents such as invoices are lost before customs declaration, you can try to reissue them by yourself and express them to the customs declaration agent. If you have a long-term cooperative relationship with the customs declaration agent, you can keep a few blank invoices, packing lists, etc. in advance for the agent to fill in when it is urgently needed. However, this practice has certain risks because the agent may abuse the documents for forgery. For the loss of the verification form with the customs declaration, you must immediately report the loss to the State Administration of Foreign Exchange, declare it invalh a newspaper, and then reissue a verification form. Loss of bill of lading: The loss of bill of lading is more serious. For freight forwarder bills of lading, you can ask the booking freight forwarder to reissue the bill of lading through a written letter of guarantee; for shipping company bills of lading, the situation will be slightly more complicated. There is a high risk that the shipping company will reissue the bill of lading, which may lead to the release of goods without bills of lading, false claims or other disputes. Usually, the shipping company will require the shipper to provrantee equal to the value of the goods or double or triple the value in addition to the letter of guarantee, and the term of the guarantee may be up to one year. At the same time, it is necessary to declare the loss of the bill of lading in the newspaper. This is a heavy burden for the cargo owner, and the specific amount depends on the relationship with the shipping company.
