Packing list (PL)

A packing list (PL) is a document that lists the contents of a shipment. It provides a detailed description of the items included in a package, such as the quantity, weight, and dimensions of each item. The packing list is used by the recipient to verify the contents of the shipment and can also be used for customs purposes to help determine the value and classification of the goods being shipped. It is a critical document in the supply chain process and can be used for tracking and documentation purposes.
