Subject: Movement of Less than Container Load (LCL) cargo from one CFS to another CFS -reg.-
The undersigned is directed to inform that during the deliberations of Inter Ministerial Group consisting of representatives of Ministry of Shipping, Ministry of Commerce and Planning Commission under the Chairmanship of Secretary (Revenue), one of the issues that came up was that the containers loaded with LCL cargo may be allowed to be moved from one CFS to another CFS for stuffing as this would help optimum utilization of space in a containers/ truck.
2. Board has issued several circulars on streamlining the procedure for transshipment and consolidation of cargo and movement of goods from gateway port to hinterland CFS/ ICD. The stuffing/ re-working of containers is being done at Gateway ports. The issue of permitting mobility to containers/ trucks to pick cargo from nearby CFS of the same port was discussed and it was felt that jurisdictional Commissioners may allow this.
3. Accordingly, it is decided by the Board that jurisdictional Commissioners by way of issue of suitable standing order should allow the movement of containers/ trucks loaded with LCL cargo from one CFS to another CFS under their jurisdiction so as to have optimum utilization of space in a containers/ truck. They should, however, ensure that the facility is not misused and revenue is safeguarded.
