The new waybill reflects the fact that Smyril Blue Water offers door to door transports - i.e. combined road and sea transport - and also emphasises NSAB2000 as contract basis. To our customers, this means that responsibility for the entire transport is limited to one place.

Units must therefore have correct number of securing points to ensure correct securing to car deck. Also all cargo must be correctly stowed and secured to avoid movements during sea transport. Shipper/driver of vehicle is responsible for correct securing of cargo to their vehicles.
SBW does only accept dangerous goods within the rules and regulations of IMDG for freight on combined passenger and freight ships. Specifications referring to the IMDG code, class, UN-number, package group and flash point (class 3) must be received before bookings can be accepted. A "Dangerous Goods Declaration" shall follow the goods and the goods must be marked according to IMDG code.
Written instructions have to be given directly to SBW showing the amount to be paid before goods can be released to Consignee.
