Manifest information, or cargo manifest or container manifest, is the data used to track freight shipments. This data typically covers details like the origin and destination of a shipment, its weight and size, the type of cargo it contains, any special handling or service requirements, and who will be responsible for paying shipping charges. This document is like a passport for goods.
Manifest information also provides an overview of all transport operations involved in moving goods from point A to point B. It can help shippers better manage their freight movement and ensure compliance with regulations while providing detailed visibility into each step of the shipment’s journey.
