    Routing Instructions

     

    Mode Selection

    Mode is the primary method by which goods and materials are transported from origin port to destination country, e.g. air courier, ocean LCL, etc.

    • Mode selection is at the discretion of Eastman Kodak Company. The Kodak contact whose name and phone number appear on the purchase order should contact the KODAK EAMER Import Transport Manager for guidance on mode and lane selection. See the Contacts section of this site for details.
    • Mode selection for air must be authorized prior to shipment through the Kodak buyer.
    • Selection of mode is determined by weight and dimensions of the shipment, and the most economical transportation method, combined with lead-time requirements to delivery.
    • Ask your Kodak contact for Supplier Mode-Specific Shipping Instructions for each mode determined. The mode selection will be included.
    • If the mode selection is air courier, and Kodak is paying for transportation (per the Incoterms® 2010), the Kodak freight forwarder's Account Number will be required by the air forwarder.
      • The appropriate account number will be provided on the Supplier Mode-Specific Shipping Instructions.
       
    • Some mode determination guidelines:
      • Air Courier (usually < 70 Kg (155 Lbs) – If Kodak pays for the freight charges, will require a Kodak air express forwarder's Account Number, as defined in the Supplier Mode-Specific Shipping Instructions.
      • Air Freight (usually > 70 Kg (155 Lbs) - may be oversized or awkward packaging to handle but palletized cargo by default.
      • Ground FTL (full truck load) dry or refer – Cargo should safely fill a truck. Pallet count is dependent on truck size and features.
      • Ground LTL (less than truck load) – may include one or more pallets.
      • Ocean FCL (full container load, including 20 or 40 foot containers) dry or refer.
      • Ocean LCL (less than container load) – may be one or more pallets. Usually, Kodak will encourage the use of a 20 foot container rather than LCL for small quantities to avoid any damages during transportation
       
     

    Carrier / Freight Forwarder Selection

    Carrier selection is first dependent on Incoterms® 2010 as agreed upon between buyer and seller.

    See the Terms of Sale (Incoterms®2010) section for details.

    Ask your Kodak contact for Supplier Mode-Specific Shipping Instructions. The carrier / freight forwarder details will be included. The Kodak contact should consult with the KODAK EAMER Transport Manager before determining carrier/freight forwarder or lane selection.
