how it works

The shipping process involves the following steps:

Once the shipment is finalized the exporter reserves the required space in the vessel or aircraft for shipment. On his request DBB will issue an AWB or B/L. The draft copy of AWB or B/L is given to the exporter for approval. AWB or B/L is like an instruction to the airlines or vessel operator that the goods as per details given should be received on board.

Here DBB makes arrangements to ship the goods to the port through the most convenient vehicle having all the specific tools required for the items.

The exported is required to issue detailed documents and submit them to the DBB. This includes AWB/BL instructions, custom documents to file shipping bill in customs and executing TC.

The cargo must be custom cleared before being boarded on the ship or plane. The custom appraiser ensures that all the formalities related to exchange control, quality control, pre- shipment inspection and licensing have been complied with the exporter. After verification, custom officials issue LEO (LET EXPORT ORDER).

The cargo is then on its way to the destination.

The post shipment documents are sent to the exporter by the shipping company bearing all the details of the shipment.
