General Cargo

At Go Shipping Cargo, we are well aware of the business needs of various sectors that deal with goods that do not require special handling. Time and professionalism is of essence and we ensure the same is maintained throughout the shipping process.

With our extensive network we are able to offer end to end logistics and are able to handle the process as per below incoterms (incoterms are international standard terms used to clearly communicate the responsibilities of sellers and buyers in the transport, freight and delivery of goods):

  • Ex-works (EXW) – Once the goods are available at the seller’s premises, the buyer takes over the process of transportation, documentation and delivery of goods to them.
    Free Carrier (FCA) – The buyer nominates a forwarder. The seller then delivers the same to the forwarder and the responsibility of transportation and delivery is handed over to the buyer.

 

  • Free On Board (FOB) – The seller is obligated to deliver the goods on board the vessel at the designated port. The buys bears responsibility for freight and delivery costs.

 

  • Cost and Freight (CFR) – The seller bears the costs from origin and transport up to the buyer’s port of destination. The buyer covers the customs clearance as well as delivery.

 

  • Cost, Insurance and Freight (CIF) – The seller bears the costs from origin and transport inclusive of insurance up to the buyer’s port of destination. The buyer covers the customs clearance as well as delivery.

 

  • Delivery At Place (DAP) – the seller is responsible for all costs and risks associated with the delivery of the goods to the final agreed-upon place, usually the buyer’s premises. The buyer is however responsible for the taxes and import clearance charges.

 

  • Delivery Duty Paid (DDP) – the seller assumes all responsibilities and costs for delivering the goods to the appointed place of destination. The seller must pay both export and import formalities, fees, duties and taxes.
