New Contents Declaration Page

Introducing our new Contents Declaration page

The smart and easy way to create your Contents Declaration

Introducing our new Contents Declaration page! We've streamlined the creation process with a host of handy new tools. Create your own Product Library, look up commodity codes in a flash, upload item descriptions in bulk, and more.
  • Save items in your Product Library

    With the new Product Library, you can save customs information for individual items, including commodity codes, descriptions, weight, value, and country of origin.

    Build a library of frequently-used items on your account, easy to search and organise by tag. You can access it when booking to help you quickly add items to your Contents Declaration.

    We’ve taken the slog out of looking up commodity codes! Search for codes by item description and add them to your order at the click of a button. Add multiple items and codes to your order in one go.

  • Single item lists for multiple parcels

    Does your shipment contain multiple boxes? With most services, you now only need to fill out a single items list for the whole consignment, rather than one for each box!

  • Upload your own invoice

    You can still upload your own customs invoice if you prefer. We’ll let you know if there’s any other info we need to submit electronically to the carrier prior to export.

Uploading Items in Bulk

You can upload items in bulk using a spreadsheet (.xlsx format). You can upload it directly to your Product Library, or at the Contents Declaration stage of your booking for an individual order.

A template is available for download at both of the locations below.

Upload to your Product Library

Log in and go to Account Tools -> Product Library.

Product Library in the menu

Select Import/Export Options on the bar at the top. Then click on Import new items.

Import new items

You can then edit, tag or remove any items you've added.

Edit button in the Product Library

Add to your Contents Declaration

On the Contents Declaration page, under 'Describe Your Items', click on the Import Items tab.

Import items tab

Your items will then be added to the list under the Enter Manually tab.

From here you can also select 'Save these items to your Product Library?' if you want to keep them for future use.

Save these items to your Product Library?

Please note: this tool may not be available from your Contents Declaration page for some carriers who have exceptional data requirements. However, you can upload your spreadsheet to your Product Library (see above), add these items to your Contents Declaration from there, and then manually fill in any missing details.

Commodity Code Finder

You can access our new Commodity Code Finder from your Contents Declaration page when filling out your order details.

On the row for entering a new item, under the Enter Manually tab, click the magnifying glass icon in the Commodity Code field. The finder will pop up.

You can use this tool to add multiple new items with codes and descriptions.

Commodity Code field

On the left (or appearing first, if you are viewing on mobile) is a search bar, with your recently used codes listed underneath.

Commodity Code Finder with search bar and recently used codes on the left

Enter a keyword into the search bar (for example, 'men's shirt') and the finder will list suggested relevant item descriptions and their respective codes. Click select to add one to your item list.

Commodity Code keyword search

Or click Add to box to add one of your recently used codes.

Recently used codes - Add To Box

Your current item list for the order is listed on the right (or, if you're viewing on mobile, after you click Review & remove items). This list includes all items you have already added for this order, even if you did not add them using the finder.

Commodity Code Finder with current item list and confirm button on the right

Click Remove to take any item off your list.

When you're done, click Confirm selected items. Any items you have added or removed in the finder will be added to or removed from your item list on the Contents Declaration page.

Current list of items - Confirm Selected Items button

You can then proceed to add other details for your items such as weight, value and country of origin.

Close PopupClose Popup
Single Item Lists For Multiple Boxes

If you are booking a shipment with multiple boxes, all services except DPD and TG Euro Parcel now use a single list to cover all items, rather than a separate list for each box.

So if, for example, you were sending five boxes each containing ten brochures, you would only need to add brochures to the list once, with a quantity of 50. This would account for the total number of brochures in the entire consignment.

For DPD and TG Euro Parcel, you will still need to fill out a separate list for each box.

Upload Your Own Customs Invoice

To upload your own customs invoice for an order, click the Upload My Own Invoice tab on the Contents Declaration page, under 'Describe Your Items'.

Upload My Own Invoice tab

Your document should include all the information described.

Custom invoice requirements

Your file must be in one of the formats specified and not exceed 20MB.

Custom invoice file formats

Carriers require some information about your items to be submitted electronically, even if you are using your own invoice. At minimum this will be the value of the goods, which will be displayed under the file upload.

Additional information required

However, some carriers may require us to submit all of the data electronically. This means you will have to enter the details for each item manually, even if you are using your own invoice.

If this is the case, after successfully uploading your file, you will be taken to the 'Enter Manually' tab to fill in your details.

Enter manually after uploading customs invoice

If you are not taken to the 'Enter Manually' tab (and shown the notice in the picture above), you do not need to fill out any of the details under that tab.

If you do, be sure the information matches whatever you have included in your uploaded document.

A Save For Later? tab should then appear to the right of the others under 'Describe Your Items'.

Click this and then Save Order to confirm. You can then leave this page. To return to your order, click on the basket icon.
