Calculate Instant ECONOMY LCL Freight Price Quote on Shipping Cargo from USA Overseas

In respect of international cargo transportation from the USA overseas, DOCK RECEIPT is a document issued by an ocean freight carrier that acknowledges receipt of shipping cargo at carrier's freight terminal.

In transporting from the USA, such freight terminals known as:

  • On shipping from USA LCL freight, it is a Container Freight Station - CFS
  • On shipping from USA FCL freight it is a Container Yard - CY
  • On shipping from USA RO-RO or Break Bulk, it is a Pier

In international shipping from the USA using LCL sea freight service, ocean freight carrier's dock receipt also verifies weight/measurement (W/M) of cargo received by the shipping terminal (CFS) for the further transportation from the USA overseas. 

However, in respect of dealing with U.S. international shipping companies (freight forwarders, NVOCC, VOCC) a Dock Receipt is an international shipping document provided to shippers in purpose to deliver cargo to an ocean freight carrier's freight terminal. You may consider such Dock Receipt as a "Ticket for your international sea freight shipment". Dock receipt has to be submitted to freight terminal at a time of cargo delivery to the freight terminal. Weight/measurement (w/m) information on shipping cargo from the USA, estimated at a time of booking, will be verified by the freight terminal. Finally, w/m and pieces count in Ocean freight Bill of Lading issued by ocean freight carrier, will be based on the verified w/m in the Dock Receipt.

Typically, with certain exceptions (for example, when delivering a motor vehicle for the shipping from the USA to the pier without a power of attorney given to the delivery driver), shippers do not have to be presented at a time of submitting cargo to the international transportation from the USA. Anyone authorized by the shipper, individual or business, may deliver cargo to the shipping freight terminal on shipper's behalf. Once again: International shippers may consider Dock Receipt as the "ticket to the international cargo transportation from the USA overseas".  

Dock Receipts in international shipping from the USA can be furnished in different ways: e-mailed in web links, PDF files, faxed, in hard copies by truckers when shipping freight FCL, etc.
