Thank you for your interest in a container of books from Books For Africa. Please read the items below before completing the form that follows:
Selection Amount: 20 pallets fit in one 40-foot container. You may order full pallets (eg. 1 pallet of Secondary Math) or ½ pallets (eg. ½ pallet post-secondary leisure reading). There are about 1,000 books on one pallet. Categories listed as “limited quantity” mean that only ½ pallet is available per shipment.
Book Categories: Books are organized by category and age level (based U.S. grade level teaching standards). “Leisure reading” books refer to picture books for young readers or novels for older readers.
Extra Items: Please note that some items listed on the final page of the order form cost money (computers, new encyclopedia sets, etc.). West Core Law Libraries and e-reader programs are available by application only. Inquire with the BFA office staff for more information.
Warehouse inventory: Books For Africa reserves the right to make modest adjustments to your order based on warehouse inventory and availability.
Labeling: If you require any specific labeling to help distinguish pallets for different container recipients, etc., please communicate those needs on this form.
Consignee Information: Please include the recipient information exactly as it should appear on the official shipping documents for the container.
Consignee Responsibility: The African consignee must provide appropriate documents, pay customs and clearance fees, and work to clear the container shipment from port immediately upon its arrival. We recommend hiring a customs agent to assist. If the shipment is not cleared through customs within 30 days of arrival, Books For Africa reserves the right to re-consign the container to another party, or to release the shipment to the freight line and port authority.
