1.5. Create Customs Manifest

Customs Manifest endpoint

A customs manifest is a consolidated list of shipments (parcels) which are being transported together for a given day (picked up at the same time). The customs manifest (or consignment) is a milestone which triggers the data to be sent to the customs broker so that the clearing procedure can start. We as Seven Senders will clear the goods on a consignment level.

Preconditions

The array of shipments declared in the manifest should be previously created using the existing Single API endpoints: POST Customs Shipment

POST Customs Manifest Parameters 

With POST Customs Manifest method, you can submit the consolidated list of shipments which should be transported together for a given day (picked up at the same time). Once submitted the manifest cannot be updated. If the customs manifest was declared with an error in it, then please reach out to your Seven Senders contact as quickly as possible.
