Tim prepares specific instructions for the liner agent and the stevedores in both the port of departure and arrival. These come on top of the standard handling instructions they already abide by for handling, stowage, lashing, securing and dunning of the cargo in the vessel and for discharging it at destination.
The Angolan letter of credit arrived. Julie has read it carefully and indicates two requests to John and Tim. The opening bank, which issues the letter of credit, is a well-rated bank and the letter of credit is found in order. The production can proceed and the goods will be ready within the stipulated validity.
Now, Tim starts preparing the necessary documents for transporting the steel to Angola: invoice, bill of lading, packing list, certificate of origin and mill test certificate. As the contract stipulates that an insurance certificate is needed, Tim passes on the necessary information to the insurance company.
