As you are all well aware, Baltimore and Newark Terminals are near capacity.
-Baltimore South Locus in near capacity so please be advise that AMPORTS continue to be an option for all running and tow units. (No Forklift and or H&H at AMPORTS at this time)
We have added tonnage to support your deliveries to all Terminals especially Baltimore, Newark and Boston. Please note that Sallaum Lines Sebring Express has been added to our July lineup and it’s calling Boston first, then Newark and Baltimore making the frequency between the Captain, Express and Aurora nearly a weekly call to Baltimore and Newark.
We look forward to maintain such calls to Baltimore and Newark to support all your RoRo shipping needs and eliminate future Terminal constraints, limits and closures the rest of 2018.
Baltimore South Locus Point Terminal is near capacity. We are forced to Temporarily Suspend Forklift deliveries effective Tomorrow Tuesday June 12th and normal Forklift Deliveries may resume on Thursday June 21st.
Also, please keep in mind that all Running and Tow units maybe delivered to AMPORTS so that you can avoid the long wait time for South Locus. AMPORT is accepting Running and Tow cargo, but no Forklift and or H and H at this time.
Please put plans in place and communicate to your drivers.
Greetings and thank you for your business. Due to the increased port operational costs for handling Forklift shipments, Sallaum Lines are announcing that effective July 8th, all Forklift deliveries will have a $100 Forklift Rate increase. Please note any vehicle delivered on or after 7/8/2018 will be charged $475 Forklift fees.
Over the past 6 months we faced Forklift operational cost increases that include, but are not limited to POL Terminal Receiving, POL Loading and POD Discharging.
Therefore, please take note that effective July 8th, any delivery of a Forklift POV will be charged the increased rate. Please avoid purchasing damaged units that will incur these fees. We strongly recommend avoiding cars with any broken glass and/or car parts that are rubbing tires to avoid these fees.
Please be advised that our Baltimore AMPORT Terminal is OPEN for your running and non running cargo deliveries. (No Forklift and or H and H at this time). Our South Locus Point Terminal is filling up and some drivers may experience longer than expected waiting times. Please advise your drivers of the AMPORT Option and have them deliver to AMPORTS.
Please be informed that due to limited space, receiving for forklift units is suspended until advised.
Please be informed that The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) has announced with short notice the implementation of a Cargo Tracking Note system starting from 1st July (Sailing date). However we understand the Authorities may allow also a grace period until 31st August allowing the loading of cargo without a CTN. However shippers are advised to make their own checks as required prior booking of cargo without a CTN in this period.
Obtaining the CTN number is the shipper's responsibility and must be obtained for all shipments to Ghana. We are advised this includes in transit cargo. The CTN should be communicated through the shipping instructions and must be mentioned on the manifest and bill of lading.
We understand that from 1st September full compliance with the Cargo Tracking Note regulation will be required and we recommend that shippers familiarise themselves with the CTN System as soon as possible.
Shippers should register on www.ctnghana.com to comply with this new requirement or visit the GRA website for further information www.gra.gov.gh
Please be advised that we will suspend acceptance of forklift units next week. We will resume receiving on June 4.
RE: Baltimore Terminals
RE: Newark Red Hook Terminal
Effective immediately, all Terminals will no longer accept any cargo that is not accompanied with the Title and will not make any exceptions.
We will be unable to get any authorizations and or approvals for any attempted deliveries for units that are not accompanied with the Title.
Please send this cargo to nearby storage if need be, until the Title is on hand and can be delivered with the vehicle.
If you have any unit at any Terminal without title for over 30 days, Customs may seize such units, or considered them abandoned. Please work on all your No Title cargo to avoid such actions.
We are here to support and help you, so please let us know your intentions on such units.
Ghanem Office will be closing at 3pm today for the Holiday Weekend, please email all Dock Receipts requests to DOCS@gforwarding.com
