Suggestions for suppliers

When you draw up an international contract, very often you adopt as terms of payment the Documetary Letter of Credit. We would like to give you some suggestions in order to avoid troubles and loss of money. First of all when you receive L/C fom your bank, you should check very carefully this document, as you have to follow up all requests.

Following just few suggestions:

  • The L/C should always be irrevocable and confirmed by your bank;
  • The goods value shown on L/C should be o the same amount of the order you received;
  • You should be sure that all documents required can be absolutely supplied;
  • Please check with Logimar the date of vessel’s departure in order to load the goods within the time previewed by L/C (the date of shipment is the date of receipt on board of an ocean vessel - not the date of loading at at your factory!).
  • You should check that the terms of delivery and the means of transport are the same you agreed with your customer.

Upon receipt of L/C if you can not met some requests, please ask your customer to amend the credit accordingly.

If your L/C expires before the time you can ship the cargo, you should ask your client to extend the L/C validity time.

It is important to supply to your bank all and well done documents, infact for each discrepancies between L/C and documents you will loose money.

Usually the L/C are issued in accordance with the “international chamber of commerce Pubblication nr. 500”. You should ask copy of it to your local Chamber of Commerce, it will be of great help!

Logimar can grant you a good and specialized assistance, we can solve all your doubts, so do not hesitate to contact us! Logimar can help you to guarantee your payments!

Suggestions for consignee

For shippers The L/C is a safe form of payment, as it always guarantee the payment of supply. Unfortunately the consignee is not really protected, infact the cargo shipped can not be checked, neither by the forwarders, neither by shipping lines, and it should happen that the importer will receive goods of bad quality.

So if you have to buy some materials abroad try to chose good and reliable suppliers, and please check carefully cargo quality upon receipt.

If you have any doubt about your suppliers, please contact Logimar, and we will try to check their reliability.

The Bill of Loading, the document issued for sea shipments, declares and describes the cargo shipped as confirmed by the supplier. So the forwarder completely has to trust in what the shipper delcares.

Insurance

The contract of carriage (the Bill of Lading) covers responsabilities of carriers but usually these liabilities are much lower than real cargo value.

In order to avoid damages, follow up these few rules:

First of all if your contact is based on “Incoterm 2000” you should read carefully the part or risks, try to issue an insurance policy for the door to door domicile, or at least for the part of transport under your liability.

When you issue an insurance policy / certificate, it is important to specify:

  • Number, weight and type of packaging shipped
  • Detailled cargo description (specifying particular dangers such as rusty, exposives or fragile cargo);
  • Kind of transport effected (by truck, by air, by sea, by train)
  • You should declare necessary transhipments or warehousing
  • Please specify the special conditions, as per L/C requests

Please remember that the all risks insurance does not cover every risk, but only the risk specified in your policcy.

You can contact Logimar for more and detailled clarifications.

Full Filled è il software realizzato da Logimar per l’ottimizzazione del carico dei container marittimi da 20’ box, 40’ box e 40’ High cube. 

Logimar decided to put its proprietary software “Full Filled" online for free use. 

Full Filled is a dedicated 3D nesting software for optimizing the loading of standard shipping containers. Initially intended to facilitate, speed up and generally render more efficient the preparation of load-sheets in its operations department, Logimar has decided to make the tool available to its customers, to its worldwide agents, to new export companies and - why not - to its competitors as well. 

Full Filled is a gift to new businesses and above all to those that are looking to export. It is intended for whoever would like to make their work easier, by helping them in their container loading process, without wasting valuable space and time. 

The “Full Filled” (Beta 1.0) software creates three-dimensional color images of the cargo placed in a virtual container, thus helping the users to load their real containers in the best possible way. The software, which can be accessed freely on the Logimar website, is a reliable instrument and is a happy mix between easy-to-use, entry-level software that performs the same function but only with an improbable homogeneity of cargo and much more complex and professional software which requires a major financial investment. 

As always, efficiency in synonymous with competitiveness and money saving. Less time spent on preparing load-sheets and less wasted space inside the container means higher profits, as well as lower CO2 emissions and less pollution in the atmosphere. This is why Logimar has decided to release its software free of charge: the benefits will be reaped by the entire network of small and medium enterprises in Lombardy, which Logimar also belongs to. 

"Full filled" has been created with a mix of client-side and server-side technologies (JavaScript, PHP and Flash). It offers a three-dimensional color image of the cargo loaded into a virtual container, so that the best possible loading arrangement may be immediately visualized.

Logimar ha deciso di mettere “on line” gratuitamente Full Filled”, un software per l’ottimizzazione del carico all’interno dei container marittimi standard. Inizialmente pensato per rendere più facile, efficiente e rapido il lavoro all’interno dei propri reparti operativi, Logimar ha quindi deciso di metterlo a disposizione anche dei propri clienti, delle aziende esportatrici (soprattutto di quelle che si apprestano a diventarlo), dei propri agenti nel mondo e – perché no? – dei propri concorrenti. 

Full Filled – letteralmente “riempito pieno” - è un omaggio soprattutto alle nuove aziende, a quelle che si apprestano ad esportare e che grazie a questo software on line avranno un aiuto nel caricare i container senza sprecare prezioso spazio e riducendo i tempi di sosta degli stessi. 

Il programma (versione Beta 1.0) gratuitamente fruibile sul web dal sito Logimar.it è una affidabile via di mezzo tra i “giochini” che svolgono la stessa funzione solo a fronte di una improbabile omogeneità del carico e i software assai più complessi e professionali che stilano il piano di carico a fronte invece di un investimento economico importante per le Piccole e Medie Imprese. 

L’efficienza è sinonimo, quanto mai in questo caso, di risparmio e di competitività: inferiore il tempo per studiare il “Piano di carico”, minore lo spazio perso all’interno del container, maggiori saranno i profitti e – non da ultimo – minori saranno le emissioni di CO2 e di inquinanti in atmosfera. Questa è la ragione per cui abbiamo deciso di “regalare” il software: il vantaggio, sarà a vantaggio dell’intero sistema, quindi della competitività delle PMI lombarde. Quindi anche nostro. 

Il software “full filled” realizzato in un mix di tecnologie lato server e lato client (javascript, Php e Flash) offre un’immagine tridimensione e a colori dei “colli” inseriti nel container virtuale affinchè sia immediatamente visibile la “migliore” disposizione possibile.
