Understand what the shipping terms means


The Shipment Binder is a binder that contains all the information you need to know about a shipment, including any tasks that still need completion. If you want to take any actions on a shipment – such as change the shipment details or amend or submit the Shipping Instruction or VGM (Verified Gross Mass) – this is the place to do it.

Binder also means a material that is similar to a thin wood or burlap that is generally placed in between the layers of the containers. Binders help the stacked container to stay together while transporting the cargo placed inside it.
