A manifest is a document that lists the pieces in a shipment. A manifest usually covers an entire load regardless of whether the load is to be delivered to a single destination or many destinations.
Manifests usually list:
- the items,
- piece count,
- total weight,
- destination name,
- and address for each destination in the load.
Shipping manifests are important documents in logistics because they help ensure that all of the products in a shipment arrive at their intended destination. This helps to streamline the shipping process and avoid delays or lost shipments.
