1. Discharged at Port

This occurs when the Bill of Lading names a port as the destination point. The independent discharge survey occurs at port and CARE, its agent or a local counterpart transports the food directly from the port or port warehouses to CARE or counterpart warehouses, using a CARE waybill.

Country Office Example

CARE Ethiopia receives food at the port of Djibouti and contracts with private transporters to move the food to CARE warehouses in Ethiopia. The forwarding agent in Djibouti completes a pre-printed, pre-numbered CARE waybill for each truck dispatched from port. The receiving warehouse storekeeper in Ethiopia fills out the Receipt Information section of the waybill to document the receipt.
