Many people at GM sometimes mistake the container seal number accidentally when using container seals. Generally, the number of container (seal) seals is always checked or mistaken by the customs broker. Here is a broad overview of the composition of the container seal number: The first part is composed of 4 English letters.
The first three codes (OwnerCode) mainly indicate the owner and operator of the container, and the fourth code indicates the type of container. For example, the standard containers started by CBHU indicate that the owner and operator are COSCO Container Lines. The second part consists of 6 digits. It is the registration code of the container (RegistrationCode), used for the only identification held by a container. The third part is the check digit (CheckDigit), which is obtained by the first 4 letters and 6 digits through the check rule calculation, which is used to identify whether an error occurred during the check.
The 11th digit. The container seal number is composed of these three parts. Generally, the first part of the container seal number is wrong when there is an error. If your container has not set sail, you can change the container seal immediately. This is relatively simple. (Recommended view: container seal) Assuming that the container is pulled away, it is discovered that the container seal number is wrong.
Then it is necessary to spend money to change the bill, and the fee for the change is about 200 yuan. If the customs inspection of the destination port is inconsistent with the actual seal number and the bill of lading, the original general inspection may be changed to a thorough inspection. This will cost a lot higher, and it is also a reasonable trouble. Another way is that you and the consignee tell him the wrong container seal number and ask him to pick up the goods according to the wrong container seal number, but this requires the consignee’s cooperation.
