The situation of the ultimate consignee indicated on the international logistics waybill is more complicated. This is somewhat similar to the consignor’s situation. Sometimes, due to import control reasons, the ultimate consignee (such as an agent) is not reflected on the waybill.
The consignee on the waybill is often the importer, but the real consignee may be displayed on the “Notifier-NotifyParty”. In addition, in the case of complex shipments, the meaning of the consignee shown on the master waybill and house waybill is different. The consignee on the house waybill is often the real consignee, while the consignee on the master waybill is often the freight forwarder.
The ultimate consignee needs to submit information
In this way, it will be easier for customs authorities to trace the goods to their final destination.
Difference between intermediate consignee and ultimate consignee
An intermediate consignee is the individual responsible for delivering the goods to the claimed owner while in transit.
The ultimate consignee is the person who has the right to take delivery of the goods.
Additionally, the intermediate consignee may be a bank or any other individual acting as agent for the principal’s benefit.
Although the ultimate consignee does not act as a forward agent or any other intermediary, it can be the end user of the goods.
