China – Misdeclaration Fee Update

In connection with our earlier announcement on China’s Misdeclaration Fee , we would like to provide you with an update on the scope of misdeclaration. Please be advised that this change will be effective from August 1, 2021, for all shipments from China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.

The penalty shall apply, but is not limited to the following circumstances:

  • Misdeclaration of commodity and any Bill of Lading information that deviates from the contractual agreement with Hapag-Lloyd;
  • Misuse of contract detected, where the shipment and Bill of Lading information deviates from the contractual agreement with Hapag-Lloyd and/or contracted rate is applied for an unrelated account without prior consent from Hapag-Lloyd;
  • Difference in cargo weight declared at the time of booking and cargo weight declared on VGM submission by VGM cutoff.

In relation to VGM amendment and misdeclaration after VGM cutoff, the applicable amendment and cargo-weight misdeclaration fees will apply to concerned shipments.

To prevent any misdeclaration, please ensure the right contract and booking details at time of booking.

If you should require additional information, please contact our customer service team at your location who will guide you based on your individual situation.
