Delivering to St. George Logistics

Issue Date: August 20, 2021

 

Effective Monday, August 23rd, STG Logistics will require compliance with the three conditions below for all export freight deliveries. Failure to comply may result in receiving delays, trucking detention and/or refusal of freight.

 

·     Cargo should be properly consigned to “STG Logistics c/o CaroTrans.” This must appear on the BOL being tendered at the time the cargo is being dropped off.

 

·     Freight must be labeled with the applicable, CaroTrans booking number.

 

·     A typed (not handwritten) booking number must appear on the BOL being tendered at the time the cargo is being dropped off.

 

This will speed up both the delivery process and dock receipt turnaround times. In addition to this, it ensures your cargo is correctly placed within our inventory for a smooth ocean container planning and loading.

 

As a reminder, all CaroTrans booking confirmations have the CFS address listed in the bottom right-hand corner of the page.

 

Your support is greatly appreciated. Please do not hesitate to contact your local CaroTrans representative if you have any questions or need additional information regarding current/future deliveries to St. George Logistics c/o CaroTrans.

Hazardous Cargo Policy

Issue Date: August 17, 2021

 

Due to new and ongoing hazardous materials restrictions in place by steamship lines in the Alliance and the Ocean Alliance, CaroTrans cannot guarantee sail dates for hazardous bookings. Hazardous cargo is subject to roll based on the steamship lines’ acceptance of consolidated hazardous shipments and their acceptance of certain hazardous classes. LCL hazardous bookings are no longer allowed on OOCL vessels, they are heavily restricted on COSCO vessels, and restricted on ONE Line vessels. Batteries moving as non-hazardous under Special Provision 188 are no longer accepted on ZIM vessels.

 

CaroTrans’ hazardous materials experts and knowledgeable customer service representatives will work with you to schedule your hazardous shipment on an acceptable service and vessel. However, last minute changes to port rotations and vessel schedules often lead to last minute vessel changes by the service operators which can impact the acceptance of an LCL hazardous booking. Going forward, CaroTrans will not absorb CFS storage charges that accrue due to schedule and/or vessel changes made by the steamship line carriers.

 

We appreciate your support. Please do not hesitate to contact your local CaroTrans representative if you have any questions or need additional information regarding current/future bookings & quotations on hazardous goods.
