All the delivery instructions should be mentioned in the Bill of Lading. For example, operation hours, if an appointment is required, if closed on special occasions. These details should be mentioned in the BL given to the trucker. The trucking company operates on seeing the instructions in the BL.

This is my experience in working with the USA trucking partners, is it the same in other countries? Please share your thoughts

Hi @Pravin K.

To be honest, we never did this here in the Netherlands since we viewed this as the shipper's responsibility to take care of the fact that the consignee is at the destination at the point of delivery. But good point though. Never thought about it.

In that case, the receiving broker (partner at destination) will contact the consignee to arrange and schedule the delivery. That is how I have always done it since then you don't interfere with country-specific details.

In the Philippines, we never did have to be detailed regarding the delivery instruction. We will just only inform the trucking company via email or call regarding instructions for delivery of item. It was not indicated in the HBL.
