SOC (Shipper's Own Container) shipping from the US

SOC (Shipper's Own Container) term implies that a cargo container is owned by a consignee.

The main advantage of this mode of transport is the lack of detention and demurrage payments — fees for the exceeded use of the container (return of the container to the port within a time period specified by a shipping line).

After unshipping the container at the port of receipt, the consignee shall have the right to choose its own route for further container transportation (by truck or rail), as the container is the property of the client. After transporting, the client shall have the right to sell the container, or use it as a storage area, etc.
