The flagship of our Atlas Breakbulk Alliance is our NVOCC called “Atlas Line”. Our NVOCC is operational since 1998 and as such has to be considered as one of the longest standing NVOCC’s in the history of the forwarding network industry.
Our house bills of lading are an officially recognized negotiable document accepted by all international banks on a global scale. As such it can be used for any type of trade between continents, irrespective whether a breakbulk, OOG, long length, rolling stock, heavy lift, LCL or an FCL shipment is involved. It can even be used for chartering activities if properly covered by an insurance policy for charterers liabilities
But Atlas Line goes even one step further. Atlas has its own FMC approved OTI and NVOCC with FMC Bond and US Customs Code 3 international carriers bond. As agent of Atlas Line International Ltd, you will be able to issue a House Bill of Lading to and from the USA. The NVOCC is also recognized by the Ministry of Transport in China and other appropriate agencies in Japan, Canada, Brazil and Mexico.
Our house bills of lading are “fraud protected” by an on-line registration system which is connected directly with our insurance brokers.
Plus 20.000 Atlas Line Bills of Lading are used each year. This is factual proof of the advantage of having such a tool. Moreover it gives you the opportunity to hide shipper and consignee avoiding backselling by the carrier.
