We ask you to submit Transport Document Instructions (TDIs) in accordance with the deadlines established by your local Seago Line office. Timely TDIs provide us with the information that needs to be submitted to the EU Member States’ customs in accordance with the deadlines established by the customs authorities. Failure to submit the shipping instructions within the set deadlines may delay the cargo manifest submission and that could prevent your cargo to be loaded on the scheduled vessel as per your booking request, as well as possible fines and/or penalties imposed by customs. Additionally, the TDI should contain accurate and complete data in accordance to EU customs regulation requirements. Should you have any questions please contact your local Seago Line office.
