The Consignee NTN Number is to be updated on the Bill of Lading which is released by origin office.

All Customs are requested to please provide your local importer NTN number along with the importer name and address while submitting the SI (Shipping Instructions).

As per customs rule, a non-manifested unit is not allowed to discharge at Pakistan and will remain on board at customer’s risk, cost and responsibility.

2) Publication of Tariff on Bill of Lading Related to Local Charges/ Free Time/ Detention Tariff.

Effective immediately, according to Pakistan Customs Rules 2001 amended in Responsibilities of Licensee for imports into Pakistan, the Carrier is to update all local collect charges other than freight on the Bill of Lading itself. The Carrier must also state on the Bill of Lading the agreed free days and detention tariff per container.
