Air Cargo Collection

Required Forms
  1. Air Waybill or Bill of Lading
  2. Commercial or Pro Forma Invoice for personal effects
  3. Packing List
Contingent Forms
  1. Certificate of Origin (for commercial cargo)
  2. Excess Baggage or Unaccompanied Effects Statement

  5. Business Tax Number
The Required Forms are provided by the seller, shipper or transportation provider.  When you receive the Air Waybill or Bill of Lading, look for the name, address and contact information of the office or warehouse from which you may collect the cargo.  Contact that office and provide the documents in your possession and they will be able to advise you of any of the additional documents or forms that are necessary to collect the cargo.

These providers are generally in a warehouse complex that serves the shipping or air port.  If you require the services of a customs broker or trucking for final delivery within that country, the carrier or agent from whom you are collecting your cargo may provide those services in-house for a reasonable price, knowing that you will have any number of options for those services, from other providers who are located in the same warehouse complex. 

IMPORTANT NOTE:  if you have the Required Forms, they should contain most, if not all of the information necessary for a local provider to quote you a competitive price on clearing and final delivery.
