Shipping Manifest

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.
