freight prepaid and collect

by SKP » Wed Jan 10, 2018 3:44 pm

hello experts,

i am exporter from India.
Exports from India to Brazil, this shipment is nominated to us and we booked on collect basis as frt rates were finalized by customer of Brazil.
now i paid local charges of origin port i.e. inr 10650 (THC+bl fees) and o/freight term is collect.
carrier Hapag Lloyd has mentioned on bl "freight prepaid INR 10650" which is not correct as i know still bl stating freight collect on other page.

My customer saying freight is prepaid showing on bl i.e. 10650 and now i need to change TERM FOB TO CFR.
How do i explain him that freight is not paid so far as it is payable at destination? please help.

sorry for if i boared you.
