Logistics Routing Guide

Updated as of October 3, 2013

The following pages are for shipments consigned to General Dynamics NASSCO, San Diego, CA. These Routing Guide Instructions are considered an adjunct to the Packing and Shipment requirements of NASSCO’s Purchase Order Terms and Conditions. Excess freight costs incurred due to noncompliance with these instructions and the instructions on the face of the NASSCO Purchase Order shall result in these extra costs being backcharged to the supplier per the provisions of NASSCO’s Purchase Order Terms and Conditions unless authorized by the NASSCO buyer prior to shipment. The normal transportation mode will be via surface carriers. Only the NASSCO buyer will authorize premium transportation, which includes airfreight, air express, padded van and exclusive use of truckload or carload carrier. To the extent possible where such shipment still supports NASSCO production requirements, NASSCO will work with the Seller to consolidate multiple shipments from the same origin/location.

  7. Wood Packing Material requirements for Import shipments to the United States (USCBP/USDA).

    This standard describes phytosanitary measures that reduce the risk of introduction and spread of quarantine pests associated with the movement in international trade of wood packaging material made from raw wood. Wood packaging material covered by this standard includes dunnage but excludes wood packaging made from wood processed in such a way that it is free from pests (e.g. plywood).

    Approved phytosanitary measures that significantly reduce the risk of pest introduction and spread via wood packaging material consist of the use of debarked wood (with a specified tolerance for remaining bark) and the application of approved treatments (as prescribed in Annex 1). The application of the recognized mark (as prescribed in Annex 2) ensures that wood packaging material subjected to the approved treatments is readily identifiable. The approved treatments, the mark and its use are described.

    ISPM 15 is the International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures Publication No. 15—Guidelines for Regulating Wood Packaging in International Trade. It represents the first international commodity based standard and sets out criteria for regulating wood packaging material used in international trade.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING TERMS

Regardless of the Incoterms in use, the seller must supply the goods as agreed in the contract of sale, together with such evidence of conformity as may be required by the contract.

Regardless of the Incoterms in use, the buyer must take receipt and pay for the goods delivered, as provided in the contract.

The payment of the forwarding fee is sometimes controversial, depending on the contract of sale.

** Risk of loss or damage is transferred from seller to buyer when goods have been delivered to carrier.

Carriage Paid To: The seller pays the freight to the named destination. DAT (Delivered At Terminal) New Term 2010: Seller delivers when the goods, once unloaded from the arriving means of transport, are placed at the disposal of the buyer at a named terminal at the named port or place of destination. "Terminal" includes quay, warehouse, container yard or road, rail or air terminal. Both parties should agree the terminal and if possible a point within the terminal at which point the risks will transfer from the seller to the buyer of the goods. If it is intended that the seller is to bear all the costs and responsibilities from the terminal to another point, DAP or DDP may apply.
Carriage & Insurance Paid: Same as CPT plus cargo insurance. Delivered ex Ship: Take possession at the port of arrival, on the ship, uncleared.
Cost, Insurance, & Freight: Same as CFR plus insurance. Delivered ex Quay (duty paid): Ownership changes on the wharf after entry has been made and duty paid.
Cost and Freight: The seller must pay the cost and freight necessary to bring the goods to the port of destination, not including insurance. The goods must be cleared for export. Delivered Duty Unpaid: Seller is responsible for all transportation charges except custom duties and taxes abroad.
Ex Works: The buyer is obligated to pick the goods up from the seller at his dock and move the goods as well as pay all charges from that point forward. Delivered Duty Paid: Seller is responsible for all charges including duty, taxes and delivery at destination.
Free on Board: Seller is obligated to have the goods packaged and ready for shipment from the agreed point. The buyer normally assumes the burden of all inland transportation costs and risks in the exporting country, as well as all subsequent transportation costs, including the costs of loading the merchandise on the vessel. Seller fulfills his obligation to deliver when the goods have passed over the ship's rail at the named port of shipment. Free Alongside Ship: The seller fulfills his obligation to deliver when the goods have been placed alongside the vessel, on the quay, or in lighters at the named port of shipment.
Delivered At Place (named destination place) New Term 2010: Seller delivers the goods when they are placed at the disposal of the buyer on the arriving means of transport ready for unloading at the named place of destination. Parties are advised to specify as clearly as possible the point within the agreed place of destination, because risks transfer at this point from seller to buyer. If the seller is responsible for clearing the goods, paying duties etc., consideration should be given to using the DDP term Free Carrier: The seller fulfills his obligation to deliver when he has handed over the goods, cleared for export, into the charge of the carrier named by the buyer at the named place or point.

Packaging Standards
  1. Packaging
    Correct securing in all 3 axis.
    Correct Markings
    Proper Crate Construction
    Packaging Deficiencies
    Correct Pallet
    Correct Blocking Inside Crate
    Proper Cushioning
    Proper Protection
    Purpose and Scope: The purpose of this guideline is to suggest improved packaging practices to better protect supplies and equipment from damage in transit to and residing at General Dynamics NASSCO warehouses and shipyard. These practices are not contractual. They address generic packing methodologies for safe handling of the product, safety of the people handling packaged items, and storage periods for a minimum of 1 year in enclosed facilities without damage to the supplies and equipment. For further general guidance, refer to ASTM Designation: D 3951 – 95 (by Reference). Please also refer to Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations for packaging requirements excluding hazardous materials, explosives, or ammunition.

  2. Transportation of Cargo: The proper blocking and bracing of crates, pallets and skidded items into a cargo container for transport is paramount to the product arriving in a safe condition. The packaged freight should be blocked, braced and strapped to prevent movement in 3 different directions: laterally (side to side), longitudinally (end to end) and vertically (up and down). The use of wood blocking, metal banding, buttress blocking and dunnage bags to secure the freight inside the container is required.

  3. Container Markings: Markings must include the name and address of both consignee and consignor, as well as any other relevant precautionary markings. Containers should clearly identify the dimensions, gross weight, if significantly off balance mark center of gravity, and lifting points. All markings signifying contents of the package should be apparent and durable. In addition, crates must be “ISMP-15” compliant.

  4. Crates, Boxes, Pallets and Skids: To ensure longer lasting durability, it is preferable that crates are held together by the use of screws and bolts. There should be a minimum of 2” clearing space within the crate. Enclosed products must be easily accessible for inspection, removal, storage, and maintenance.

  5. Base: The base of the Crate, Skid, or Pallet should extend by a minimum of 2’’ to 3’’ on each side beyond the widest packaged equipment. At no time shall the materials or equipment extend beyond the base. The major factor in determining the base design is the weight of the item.

  6. All pallets should have stringers and clearly marked strapping points.

  7. Styles:
    • Standard pallet
    • Skid with 2” nominal deck boards
    • Load Bearing Members (LBMs) should be utilized to ensure the equipment does not break through the base. Placement of LBMs should be placed directly under the weight distribution points.

  8. Securing: Items need to be prevented from movement in 3 different directions: laterally (side to side), longitudinally (end to end) and vertically (up and down).

  9. Cushioning: To protect against shock and vibration, where mechanical items could move within the crate, cushioning is required.

    Securing/cushioning methods:
    • Blocking and Bracing: Adding wooden blocks to the inside of the container to stop movement.
    • Foam and Confinement: The process of encasing an item in a cavity with foam by lining the interior of the container.
    • Bolting and Lagging: Using threaded hardware to secure an item through its mounting brackets or the base of the container.
    • Banding or Bridging: The process of using metal or plastic bands and wooden bridges over the top to secure the load to the base of the container.
    • Cushioning using bubble wrap, dunnage bags, or foam is acceptable.
    • Peanuts, straw, and newspaper are NOT permitted.
    • Equipment with sheet metal casing (switchboards, etc.,) must have corner protection to avoid damage from strapping.
    • Multiple boxes on pallets should be shrink-wrapped, individually marked and banded to the pallet.
    • Exposed knobs, handles, and switches should be protected from accidental damage. However, protection must be easily removed and capable of re-installation. Foam protection should be used regarding meters, gauges, and displays – removable and replaceable as required.
    • All valves should have protection around the flange face.
    • All gauges, drain plugs, terminals, exposed piping and tubing should also be protected.

  10. Unitization:
    • Multiple purchase orders must be packaged separately.
    • Loose parts should not be packed within the equipment (i.e., Storing small parts in switchboard cabinets)
    • Loose parts must be individually packaged and clearly marked. Please refer to purchase order instructions.
    • Only Loose Parts marked with an “EL” prefaced part number may be shipped separately. All other parts must be shipped fully assembled.
    • Bulk packaging is specifically excluded unless specified in the contract or order.

  11. In general, General Dynamics NASSCO reserves the right to refuse shipments that are not palletized, adequately protected, and capable of multiple handling with lift equipment. Suppliers are encouraged to use advanced packaging techniques with suppliers of your choice. An example is Craters & Freighters; see contact info below:
