It is imperative that an ISF Filing is done for all ocean shipments by Indium’s supplier 24 hours before the cargo is laden aboard a vessel destined to the United States. This is a U.S. Import Regulation that results in fines of $5,000/shipment for non-compliance. Indium Corporation reserves the right to charge this fee back to the shipper if not adhered to. The 8 data elements required on the ISF Filing are:
- Importer of record number
- Consignee number(s)
- Manufacturer (or supplier)
- Ship to party
- Country of Origin
- Commodity Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) number
Reference the applicable Indium purchase order number on all transport docs and communications. The Purchase order number, contract number, Master B/L consignee's name and consignee's contact information must be on all freight documents, including the carrier's documents (e.g. air waybill or ocean bill of lading).
Include a detailed Commercial Invoice and Pack List showing country of origin and accurate HTS Classification for each line item.
All shipments containing wood must ship on treated pallets per international solid wood packaging requirements, ISPM-15 (International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures) and must be stamped accordingly.
Consolidate items shipped on one day to the same destination on one air waybill or ocean bill of lading.
Combine multiple part numbers and purchase orders in one shipping container on one pallet when the items are being shipped to the same destination.
Base the routing on total aggregate weight (e.g. dimensional and gross), not on the weight of each package.
At Indium, our relationships with our suppliers and customers are our top priority. We respectfully request your understanding regarding the importance of adhering to routing and shipping instructions for Indium shipments.
