In my current job in a company that sells telecommunication equipment and IT devices I was in-charge of making sure that shipment should be sent in the safest and most affordable way available. I deal with couriers and forwarders and decide on which company we can save more with regards to freight charges and shipping costs. It’s a job that I never dreamed of because I find it easy but coupled with risks as well. Information about shipped documents should be dealt with caution because failure to do so will cause hazard in the release.
I have experienced receiving a shipment with invoice error from our supplier and we suffered the consequences of paying penalty charges. Being a neophyte in this kind of work I was disappointed at first then I realized that I should learn from it and be cautious in our future transactions. Now after several months of that bad incident I am extra careful with my instruction to supplier that they include the right invoice details as we will have a hard time with Customs on any error that they will see be it a real mistake or just a typo error.
