Regulation Saudi Arabia / Product Labelling

The Saudi Customs Authority has given strict directives that the Country of Origin / Made in ------ must be mentioned (engraved or affixed – non removable sticker) on each item and also should be printed on the boxes / cartons.

The Certificate of Origin also must mention the same details

If the shipment is originating from any European Country , then the exact Country of the item manufactured / produced must be mentioned in Certificate or Origin instead of “EUROPEAN UNION”. If one package / carton contain shipments from various countries , then each item should show its own country of origin.

If any shipment arrives without Country of Origin / Made in ….., then the authority will not allow affixing the country of origin on the item anymore and such cargo has to be returned (re-export) of the shipment to its origin at shippers / consignee’s cost without any prior notice.

It is applicable for all shipments arriving at Ports of Entry Jeddah , Dammam and Riyadh effective 1st February 2009.

Therefore, we request your strict instructions to all your suppliers to adhere the regulation which is now mandatory as per the Saudi Customs Authorities.

Any failure to follow these instructions are treated as a serious offence and the importer on record will fully responsible for whatever delays and cost incurred against port penalties , demurrages , detention charges extra manpower and related labours charges.

2016-09-09 - Insolvency of Hanjin Shipping Co. Ltd.

Insolvency of Hanjin Shipping Co. Ltd.
To all our Customers
We regret to inform you that the South Korean Shipping Line Hanjin is bankrupt and has filed an insolvency request with the local Court in Seoul.
The Shipping Line, ranked No. 7 largest in the world, gave payment problems and their Banks refusing further financial assistance as the reasons for this step.
In order to protect the interests of our clients and their shipments, we have immediately terminated our collaboration with Hanjin.  This also includes cargo space bookings with Hanjin's alliance partners.  Shipments which have already been placed will be re-booked on alternative shipping lines.  We are also trying to work out solutions for containers which are currently in circulation or are on board Hajin vessels.
PLEASE KINDLY NOTE:  Hanjin ships can be seized.  Should this happen, it is not possible to claim the containers which are on board.  We have to plan for delays and problems before the cargo can be discharged.  Also, we have to reckon with additional costs which are the responsibility of the shipper and consignee as mentioned in the waybill.  Please be assured that we will act in your best interests to try and keep possible problems and penalties to a minimum.
We at WCL will make it our highest priority to keep any impact on you, as our valued customers, as low as possible.
We will keep you informaed about current events relating to the bankruptcy of Hanjin Shipping.  Should you have any further questions, please contact your WCL Partner.
Your WCL Team
