It sets the rules for the global trading system and resolves disputes between its member nations. Its main function is to ensure that trade flows as smoothly, predictably and freely as possible.

Hello Anna! This concept of entrepot trade popped up in international market mainly because of higher dependency on transshipment of cargo in Singapore, Hong Kong and Dubai.The external trades of these countries are 90% dependent on transshipment which has played a leading role in their economic boom. Entrepot trade is of the kind of external trade. It is basically a trade in which imported goods are re-exported with or without any additional processing or repackaging. Entrepot is mainly used to refer to duty-free ports with the high volume or re-export trade. At entrepot, goods do not face any import and export duties upon shipment from the port. In simple terms, it can be said that if goods are imported from one country with the purpose of re-exporting to another, it is called Entrepot trade. In this situation the trader becomes the consignee who imports and is also the exporter at the moment of the re-exporting to the third party country where the goods will be ultimately received. For example, if an Indian company imports rubber from Thailand and exports it to Japan then it is called Entrepot trade for India.

Hi Sarah! As far as I know, only the shipper is responsible to sign the DG declaration. This signature may be replaced by the name(s) (in capitals) if the DGD is presented to the carrier by means of EDP or EDI. Further the person responsible for packing the container shall sign the packing certificate. Packing certificate is not required for tanks.
