C. Transshipment

Transshipment occurs when food is discharged from the vessel at a foreign port and loaded on board a second vessel for delivery to its final destination. This is most often done by the same steamship company, however, it is not uncommon for transshipments to involve more than one carrier. In some instances, food might leave the United States for a port in Europe where the food is placed on another ship bound for the final port of discharge. Transshipments can also occur once food arrives at the country's main port and is then turned over to a local shipping company for onward delivery to a secondary port. In each case, the terms and conditions of the original Bill of Lading remain in force, and the original shipping company's liabilities are not waived.
