Maersk Spot – US Trades
A smart solution for trading to and from the US
With markets adapting to ever-changing dynamics, here’s a way to enable your logistics process to capitalize on any opportunity. With Maersk Spot now available for US Trades, you get a loading guarantee, fixed prices upfront, and inland and ocean services in one booking. Enjoy the easy and secure movement of your goods to and from the United States every time.
The Maersk Spot service for US Trades is our very first version. That’s why we continue to optimize it and make your bookings more seamless. Maersk Spot US Trades is regulated by the FMC (Federal Maritime Confederation) and comes with slight differences compared to how you know Maersk Spot from other trades.
Here are the key differences:
- There are a few more steps in your booking journey. When booking, you will need to declare whether you are the ‘Price owner’ or ‘Agent’ and if you are the ‘Cargo Owner’ or ‘NVOCC’ (Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier).
- For every FIRST Maersk Spot booking made by an ‘Agent’ on behalf of a customer, a LOA (Letter of Authorization) must be signed by the ‘Price owner’ before any Maersk Spot bookings can be confirmed. The LOA is valid for a year.
- In the case of amendment, a cancellation and a new booking is currently required. For more information, please refer to our FAQ section.
Please note that when booking Maersk Spot to and from the US, the shipment is regulated by the FMC (Federal Maritime Commission). This means that legally a letter of authorization (LOA) from the price owner is required. The LOA template can be downloaded here.
