What should be noted for FCL shipping in the United States?
Release time:2024-01-15

1、 What is FCL shipping in the United States
FBA FCL (Full Container Load) in the United States refers to three forms of standard containers for Amazon sellers with a single shipment volume of 20 foot small containers (20GP), 40 foot large containers (40GP), and 40 foot high containers (40HQ). Container shipping is used as the first leg transportation, arriving at ports such as Los Angeles and New York in the United States to complete customs clearance, and then arriving at warehouses in the United States to complete FBA warehousing operations according to FBA warehousing standards. The FBA shipping line in the United States arranges for FBA warehousing appointments and delivery to designated FBA warehouses.

1. After the goods are ready, it is necessary to contact the freight forwarding company in advance for chartering and booking, and inform the freight forwarding company of the information about the loading of the goods when booking.
2. After the booking is completed, customs clearance can be arranged. After the SO is released, the exporter needs to contact the workshop to confirm the loading of the goods into the container, and then contact the freight forwarder to load the goods into the container within the specified time. Exporters need to determine whether the freight forwarding company they are looking for provides customs clearance and container towing services. If they do not provide relevant services, they will need to find another freight forwarding company for customs clearance and container towing services. When looking for a freight forwarding company, it is important to first determine whether the company is reliable.
2、 Pay attention to the following points when loading containers
1. When loading containers, the container number and seal number of the goods must be kept in mind, and the loading personnel must be instructed not to damage the packaging during the loading process.
Refusal to accept or hold containers due to reasons such as tight loading of goods that cannot be unloaded, loose loading that is prone to collapse, and long unloading time for too many items. During the loading process, there should be room for looseness on both the top, bottom, left, and right sides of the entire cabinet, especially when sealing the two rows of doors, the upper part must be left empty. Amazon warehouses and most overseas warehouses generally require that the upper part of the goods near the door be stacked in a trapezoidal shape (Ramp), with a minimum slope of 8 inches (20 centimeters) reserved to facilitate on-site unloading workers to avoid the door beam for operation.
2. The volume and weighing information of the goods may have deviations. Therefore, after returning to the cabinet, it is necessary to update relevant information in a timely manner.
Amazon requires each box with a gross weight exceeding 50 pounds (22.7 kilograms) to be labeled with a "TEAM LIGHT" label, and each box with a gross weight exceeding 100 pounds must be labeled with a "MECH LIGHT" label. For example, OAK3 warehouse does not accept goods with a single weight exceeding 40 pounds (18 kilograms). SNA4 warehouse does not accept goods with a single weight exceeding 50 pounds (22.6 kilograms).
3. When loading the container, carefully check the information on the container pickup documents. At the same time, it is also important to pay attention to the driver's identity information and whether the cabinet number on the cabinet and documents is consistent.
4. When conducting customs declaration, relevant documents should be prepared in advance. Please note that we need to reserve more time to avoid unexpected situations. During the process of exporting a full container, the customs declaration must provide the container number and seal number. In order to leave sufficient time for customs clearance, it is necessary to arrange container loading a few days in advance.
5. After receiving the copy of the bill of lading, it is necessary to verify it immediately and correct any issues promptly. In addition, a copy should be sent to the customer for confirmation.
