It is imperative that an Import Security Filing (ISF) is done for all ocean shipments by Indium Corporation’s supplier 24-hours before the cargo is laden aboard a vessel destined to the U.S. 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 ten data elements required on the ISF are:
- Ship to
- Container stuffing location
- Importer of record number
- Ultimate consignee number
- Manufacturer Name and Address
- Country of Origin
- Commodity Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the U.S. (HTSUS) number
Reference the applicable Indium Corporation PO number on all transport docs and communications. The PO number, contract number, and the master bill of lading consignee’s name and 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.
