Hi there. I’ve got quite unusual situation: the containers from Brasil to Russia were inspected by customs service in European transhipment port.
We, as a consignee and notify party, didn’t get any info from carrier and was obliged to pass numerous customs inspection at the port of destination (new seals? additional goods, not mentioned in B/L?) and now we’ve been charged by the same carrier for demurrage and storage.
