Shipment management

What are shipping instructions?

Shipping Instructions, or SI, is a document that provides detailed specifications of a shipment, like a container number, seal number, exact number of packages, HS code of the commodity, etc.

The instructions in the document are used to create your Bill of Lading or Sea Waybill which is the main legal transportation document used in shipping.
