How to mitigate the risks of uncollected cargo
The problem of uncollected cargo is a perennial problem for NVOCC operators, often resulting in considerable bills on warehousing, container demurrage, and disposal costs. Apart from anything else, there is a significant drain on management resource to bring resolution.
Uncollected cargo is not a new challenge to NVOCC, but in many parts of the world appears to be an increasing problem. The NVOCC is particularly exposed to liability to costs that arise rapidly where house bills have been issued and it acts as carrier.
There may not be a ‘silver bullet’ that can be applied generally, but there are clearly controls that can be implemented to assist in identifying the risk early and in mitigating the consequences. While TT Club provides insurance cover and global claims assistance that mitigate the costs that arise due to a consignee’s failure to collect cargoes, the more effective route is to maintain procedures to avoid the problem in the first place.
