Shipping Instructions - "Pallet(s)"US Customs & Border protection has eliminated the use of "pallet" as a packaging type for shipping instructions - instead requiring such items to be listed as "skids." Given this information, CaroTrans will not, for compliance purposes, display "pallets" on our bill of lading and may substitute it for "skids" when necessary. There are several audit points in place to update as required and prevent any unnecessary delays in sailing.
Our team will check shipping instructions and the manifest prior to submitting to the underlying carrier. Should you have any questions, please reach out to your local CaroTrans branch.
