What is a Shipping Manifest?

A Shipping Manifest is a document that lists all the items or packages being shipped on a particular vessel, aircraft, or truck. It typically includes details such as the names and addresses of the shipper and consignee, the description of the goods being shipped, the quantity of goods, and the weight and dimensions of the packages. The shipping manifest serves as a record of the cargo being transported and is used for customs clearance, tracking, and invoicing purposes.
