- Number of packages
- Marks and numbers
- Cargo gross weight

- UN number and IMDG code where applicable
An Advance Manifest Submission (AMS) fee of USD 30 per BL will be applicable for every BL filed. For amendment to BL after submission, an Advance Manifest Amendment (AMA) fee of USD 40 per amendment per BL is applicable.
