For the new cement/steel importers, Sinocem as your supplier, will provide assistance to customs clearance, transportation and warehousing at the destination ports. Before the vessel arrives, we will sent our overseas staff to the port, to follow up the discharging process and timely provide guiding and assisting.

In order to achive the target discharging rate at destination ports in Africa or South America, there’s a list of preparation that should be done:
- Possession of an import licence;
- Good preparation of documents;
- Good customs clearance;
- On-time payment to stevedore, customs and agent;
- Find a warehouse sufficient for interim storage of bagged cement;
- Employ a sufficient number of trucks and trailors from a reliable transport company to move bagged cement out of the port terminal immediately after discharging from the ship. Never ever attempt to use the ship as the warehouse because this is EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE!
- Make sure that the stevedore works in 3 shifts 24 hours around the clock including weekends and holidays because the chartering term is WWD SHINC and vessel is paid everyday including weekends and holidays!
- Get BV or SGS inspection on discharging and get a discharging report from them;
- We strongly recommend our discharging equipment, which is inexpensive and easy to handle, to be used at some ill-equipped discharging ports so as to prevent demurrage, save your cost and achieves your profit target.
