Container Shipping Process
When you are ready to begin shipping you will need to complete our booking request form (in container document section below) and send copies of the following: down payment receipt, front/back of vehicle titles (if shipping vehicles). *Down payment instructions are found at the bottom of booking request form.*
Once you send the above listed items to us, we will send you a booking confirmation that lists the booking number you will give to your trucker to bring you the empty container to load.**if we are assisting with title clearance we will need you to FEDEX us the original titles prior to you loading the container.** The booking confirmation will also list the vessel earliest return date, documentation cutoff date, and port cut/validated title cutoff date.
Once we see an empty container has been brought to you, we will send you several forms you will need to complete in order for us to create you a dock receipt and proof B/L. *Please look over these documents and notify us of any errors at least 48 hours prior to vessel sailing date.* You will give your dock receipt to the trucker to return the loaded container back to the port.
Once the container is gated into the port and customs has cleared your titles (if applicable) your container will be set to sail. Once the container sails, we will send you your final invoice and the Oceane Marine bills of lading.
During the shipment you can track your container using the booking number. You can click on the steamship line you shipped with under the "Container Tracking" section on the left of this page. This will bring you to the page where your shipment can be tracked.
Prior to arrival at final destination, you will need to pay the balance of your container so that we can issue the Telex Release (electronic release) for you to pickup container. *Should you want the original bills of lading (paper copy) instead of the Telex, please tell us this at time of booking as these will be mailed to the US address you provided on the booking request form.
