Recently, a question came from one of the readers asking about the following problem. He received an LC with the following conditions:
He wants to know whether the information in field 44E and field 45A above is correctly indicated.
Is it necessary to indicate the point of delivery in field 45A? In the above example, name of the port that is “Bangkok Port” is not indicated. Is this ambiguous?
Field 45A is specifically to describe the goods or services and to indicate the trade term agreed upon by both parties. Therefore, the name of the port need not appear again in this field. Nevertheless, it is not wrong if the buyer wish to indicate again the name of the port in this field. However, it makes no difference whether it is indicated or not as information in field 44E is already conclusive.
