What does a Line Number in IGM mean? 

Line number in Import General Manifest is something that most importers will have heard about or experienced. Here in this article, we will know what is a line number in IGM? You can understand such technical terms of international trade in our export import training program.   IGM contains information about goods arriving at the destination and is completed by the carrier of the goods at that location.  A carrier of goods files an IGM with customs after arriving at a customs location with the following details: the name of the shipper, the consignee, the number of packages, the type of packages, the AWB/BL number, and a description of the goods, etc.   Normally, each shipment is given a serial number in the Import General Manifest. Usually, the carrier treats one Bill of Lading or one Airway Bill as one shipment. This is why each Bill of Lading/Airway Bill is listed one by one by mentioning the serial number in IGM. The serial number is called the Line number in IGM.  Did you enjoy our article on line number?
