Summary: The Recommendation can be used as a basis for the design of standard consignment instructions intended to convey instructions from either a seller/consignor or a buyer/consignee to a freight forwarder, carrier or his agent, or other provider of service, enabling the movement of goods and associated activities. The Recommendation describes the required information at a generic level. Implementers should define the information in detail, taking into account the latest requirements on dangerous goods and on security in transport. A good example of standard consignment instructions are the FIATA forwarding instructions.
