What is Declaration Data?

Declaration Data in shipping refers to the information provided by the shipper or consignor of a shipment that is required by customs and other government agencies for the purpose of assessing duties, taxes, and other fees, as well as to ensure compliance with various regulations related to the shipment. 


Declaration Data typically includes information such as the description of the goods being shipped, their quantity and value, the country of origin and destination, the identity of the shipper and consignee, and any special handling or transportation requirements. This information is usually provided on a shipping manifest or bill of lading and must be accurate and complete in order to avoid delays or penalties.
