For all shipments during this unusual time, if the consignee or driver feels that it is safer to refrain from signing any shipping documents, the driver can print the name of the receiving person on the shipping document. Alternatively, some carriers are now using an electronic logging system to input the name of the receiving person or driver. In either case, these options will act as the official signature of receipt or pickup, as the case may be.

Similarly, if a shipment is damaged in any way or has a shortage of cargo, damage should be noted at the time of delivery, but it may not be on the bill of lading or delivery receipt. Using these alternative approaches absolves TRANSATLANTIC GLOBAL LOGISTICS INC from the liability of not having a driver, shipper, or receiver’s signature on shipping documents in accordance with previous practices and will be sufficient to confirm delivery for payment purposes.

Shippers, receivers, and carriers should document all pickup, delivery, and damage to the best of their ability in real time. We encourage all parties to take pictures of the shipment to confirm pickup, delivery, and the condition of the product at every step.

This post amends TRANSATLANTIC GLOBAL LOGISTICS INC’s standard terms and conditions until further notice.

We have been continuing to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic in the locations surrounding our corporate offices. As we see states beginning to lift shelter-in-place orders, we will be starting to return small groups of Team Members to their offices. We are and will continue to monitor recommendations from the CDC and WHO as we return.

Team Members who will be returning to their offices will do so in phases over a period of time, keeping in accordance with CDC and WHO guidelines. Access to our buildings will be limited to approved Team Members and all will be required to go through temperature screenings. Our offices have been prepared to the best of our ability to continue practicing social distancing. Our cleaning efforts have continued while our Team has been away, and we will continue to diligently clean and sanitize our space.

Being people-centric both in culture and services means the health and safety of our Team is of the utmost importance to us, while ensuring no disruptions in our level of service. We are eager to return to our offices to see and work alongside one another again but will continue to do so safely and slowly to help contain the spread of COVID-19.


IMO 2020

On 1 January, 2020 new rules come into play globally which aim to reduce sulphur oxide emissions from ships. From that date, all merchant vessels must use marine fuels with a maximum sulphur content of 0.5% compared with the current 3.5%.

The new regulations are being introduced by the IMO (the International Maritime Organization) and are referred to as IMO 2020.  The aim of this emissions cut is to significantly reduce the shipping industry’s impact on the general public and the environment.

All ship operators need to comply with these new regulations whether by upgrading vessels or fuel – these new regulations mean increase costs across the board which will be passed on to you the shipper.  This is a compulsory change in the rules from 1 January, 2020 and applies to all companies involved in ocean freight forwarding.

At TRANSATLANTIC GLOBAL LOGISTICS INC Logistics’ our ocean freight specialists around the world are fully versed in what these changes will mean for you.

As a responsible multi-modal operator TRANSATLANTIC GLOBAL LOGISTICS INC thoroughly endorses the initiative and will support you in understanding the new rules and what their impact will be on you.

The first changes in respect of IMO 2020 will start to be implemented during the month of October 2019 with the whole programme coming into full effect on 1 January, 2020.

Between now and then we expect you will have many questions and in order to provide an easy reference point for you, we have set up a link to our website featuring key questions and their answers.  Please click here to view the responses from our experts.

The details about how the new IMO 2020 charges will impact your business will be communicated by your local TRANSATLANTIC GLOBAL LOGISTICS INC Logistics representative as appropriate.  But in the meantime, if you have any questions you would like us to answer directly, please email;

We look forward to assisting you through the transition process now and on into 2020 to ensure a successful introduction of the new rules.
