This is one of the common doubts among traders, the difference between port of delivery and port of discharge. Is there any difference between port of discharge and place of delivery? Is port of discharge and place of delivery same?
The column ‘Port of Discharge’ and ‘Place of Delivery’ is same in most of the Transport document. Are there any difference in Port of discharge and place of delivery?
The port of discharge and place of delivery is commonly mentioned in the bill of lading. The term Port of Discharge means, the Port in which the goods are discharged. However, if the port of delivery has been mentioned in the bill of lading, the responsibility to deliver goods at place mentioned in Bill of Lading is vested with the carrier of goods.
Port of discharge can be a destination sea port, where in Place of delivery be at an inland location away from port of discharge. If the carrier accepted goods from shipper to deliver at a port other than port of discharge, the cost of delivering cargo from port of discharges to the place mentioned to deliver cargo has to be met by the carrier of goods.
If the carrier accepts goods up to port of discharge only, the column ‘place of delivery’ or ‘port of delivery’ leave blank, which means the liability of carrier to deliver cargo is only up to port of discharge. Also read - What is Dry Port?
