Booking is arrangements between Carrier and shipper for freight confirmation, mostly for sea shipments. Importer or exporter companies require a full container or less container space from carriers on any specific date for cargo. Booking includes the agreement related to shipment conditions such as freight, delivery time, and loading date. Booking carries an option date, and the deal will automatically expire if the shipper does not make the necessary preparations.
