The advice of shipment is a caution sent to buyer companies "consignee" advising that the shipment has taken place. The advice of shipment includes the content of the loaded goods, the number of packages or parcels, the type of products, and their prices. A copy of the invoice and bill of lading can be attached with the advice of shipment. Because one of the purposes of sending advice on the shipment is to enable the importer company to make shipping insurance with the information, it will obtain.
