🏭 Product from New Zealand, butter oil (HS code 0405.90.90), packaged in 210 kg/drums, total 80 drums, loaded into a 20 ‘FT container. The total weight is 16.8 MTs, under FCL term CIF.

🚢 After loading the goods at the origin and crossing the sea to Thailand, upon arrival at the Laem Chabang Port, the containers will be transported to the customs inspection area, which for this shipment final destination is Lat Krabang port.

✍️ Customs Clearance Procedure

Customer provide full set export documents from the supplier to Pegruma. Upon the vessel's arrival at the Port of Discharge, the shipping line sends an arrival notice via email to Enter B/L. Subsequently, an invoice is received from the shipping line to obtain D/O. Customer prepares B/L, Invoice documents from the shipping line, payment slip, and payment receipt to submit to the shipping line.

If the product requires an import permit from FDA as our case study, the customer must arrange LPI and proceed with customs declaration and payment of import duties. Once the customs seal is affixed, Pegruma submits all documents to the FDA department and then Customs Department for cargo release, along with the container's removal date.

🚚Transporting Products to the Customer’s Warehouse

Pegruma, arrange a truck to pick up the container from the port as per customer’s order. Documents are checked before container pickup, and then the goods are delivered to the customer's warehouse. After successful delivery, the empty container is returned to the designated location specified in the D/O.
