Cross trade / Triangular operations
Increasingly, and due to the effects of globalization, a general tightening of purse strings and specialization in transport operations, cross trade or triangular operations are more and more common.In cross trade operations, the companies that carry out the purchase-sale operation coordinate the movement of the goods directly from the country of origin to the destination country, which results in savings in costs, time and payment of nationalization taxes. Because in many cases exporter and importer do not know each other and are missing information, these operations can be complicated with regard to documentation. For this reason, it´s very important the agent that manages the operation, since it requires consulting in:- Issuance of Bill of Lading or AWB or CFR (Certificate of Receipt)- Documentation required.- Specific documentation or conditions, if there are Documentary Credits in any of the operations or in both (purchase/sale).- Negotiation of conditions, the applicable Incoterm duties for all operations (purchase/sale) - Origin of the goods. Never lose the origin of the goods. Origin documents.- Analyses of costs and risks of the operation.
Combined sea/air transport
Combined sea/air transport is a faster transport service than maritime and less costly than air. It combines one part of a journey by boat, and other by plane.The service is offered from all Asian ports to all European destinations. The goods arrive at the port of origin and sail to an intermediate port (Dubai, Busan or Singapore). There, the maritime container is unloaded and the air container is loaded, departing from the intermediate airport, flying to the destination of the goods. For this it is important to take into account the IATA regulations for the air portion of the shipping. The port of Dubai, where the majority of combined transport shipping operations are carried out; it is currently the locale that offers the best options for this type of service, due to its infrastructures and geographic location. It is important to evaluate the characteristics of the shipment in order to determine if the operation will be profitable .
