|Demo of Manifest in Logistics|
Manifest in logistics or Logistics manifest is the document which shows the items which has shipped from supplier office to its final customer. Whether there is one transport company or group of transport company, single logistics manifest document has been prepared which shows only detail of item's quantity, size and weight and pickup time. It is not legal document but it is used for record purpose for both seller, transport and eCommerce website hub.
Yesterday, I have sold my one Book "Journal Entries MADE Easy" through Flipkart. For giving it to Flipkart Transport company, I need to generate Manifest in logistics. So, I have followed the step and generate it. I have printed it. Now, tomorrow, Flipkart's own transport company will come and take my product by filling the information and will deliver to my customer who is living in West Bengal.
Logistics Manifest Vs Bill of Lading
I have already explained bill of lading in my past content. There is misunderstanding between logistics manifest and bill of lading. Bill of lading is legal document which is issued by one transport company to ship company. It is the clear evidence of the contract between consignor and carrier company. Delivery will be to consignee.
But Logistics manifest is the informational document which is used by seller, seller hub provider, transporter and customer but still court can require this document in case of lost of goods. If goods are imported, this manifest will be checked custom officer. Same document will be called Import general manifest (IGM). Document no. is must on this.
Logistics Manifest Vs Certificate of Origin
Logistics manifest is only the detail of items which has been transported for sending to final customer but it is not certificate of origin. Certificate origin must have the declaration of manufacturer or producer.
