It is the notice sent by the Carrier to the company in the "notify" part of the bill of lading before the cargo reaches the destination port.

Arrival notice contains information such as product, quantity, weight, and volume in the transport vehicle. The importer company checks the information in the arrival notice and starts customs procedures through the customs broker.

Arrival notice also includes information such as BL number and container number. Although as a standard procedure, shipping companies send Arrival notices and tracking transit and accept on-time delivery. It is the buyer's responsibility to track the load and start the transactions on time.
