Terms & Glossaries of Shipping and Trading
A proceeding wherein a shipper/consignee seeks authority to abandon all or parts of their cargo. In most cases, the liability for the abandoned cargo falls under the shipper. In addition, if cargo does not have a filled out Bill of Entry and it is not cleared by the importer, cargo can also be considered abandoned.
