    As the shipper I would like to know why the b/l has to be consigned “to order of Shipper Name” rather than “To Order”. I am dealing with an LC and my bank said it was a discrepancy but maybe my customer’s bank will not require an amendment. Also, should I be worried that the steamship line won’t relase the container to my customer.

    Thank you

    Can someone please send me an example of a “Silica Gel Free” packing declaration. This is the first time I have to prepare.
