Dear Miss Pollard,

Our clients, Delta Computers, Wellmgborough, inform us that they have received a cable from their customers, N.Z. Business Machines, Wellington, that the SS Northern Cross which was due in Wellington on June 25 has not yet arrived.

The vessel was carrying a consignment of computers for our clients, shipped B/L 6715, and they want to know why the ship has been delayed. A prompt reply would be appreciated.

Yours sincerely,

J.D. Simpson




Delay in arrival of shipment

Goods can be delayed, damaged, or carried-over to another port. In such cases the seller or his forwarding agent will contact the shipping company. (Refer to 11.4.4/5/6/7 for previous correspondence.) Note that the correspondence with the shipping company is through Kent, Clarke, the forwarding agents who sent the goods in this case.

Container services

Containers are large steel boxes, 20 to 40 feet in length, can hold most cargoes including liquids, and are transported by lorries or trains to ports where they are loaded on to container vessels and shipped. Because of their sealing to prevent pilfering they are safe, and goods are also protected against constant handling. They are versatile, loading top, front, or side, and can cut a ship's laytime

(waiting time) down by 60-70 per cent. Small parcels from different shippers can be grouped together (consolidation) at a depot if they are for the same destination, and special groupage rates are offered to consignees.

Most ports in the world have facilities for loading and unloading containers, and if they do not have them, the container can be delivered to a port with facilities, then loaded on to trucks and taken to the customer.
