A packing list itemizes the contents of each package (box, pallets, etc). It includes weights, measurements and detailed lists of the goods in each package. The packing list should be included in carton or package, and can be attached to the outside of a package with a copy inside.
This document is used by freight forwarders to determine weights and freight costs. It’s also used by U.S. and/or foreign customs officials to check the contents of a specific package or carton.
