Accurate details of all cargo need to be provided to the AAD for export and import manifest purposes. Manifests are required to be submitted to Customs, Quarantine, voyage management and logistics staff, the stations and waste management contractors. The success of this process depends on the accuracy of information lodged by you as the consignor.

If you are sending general cargo or your personal effects to station, you are required to complete an electronic consignment system (eCon). Please ensure your eCon number is attached to each piece of your cargo and acuratly reflects what you intend on sending to station.

If your cargo contains a number of line items it is recommended that you use the ‘spreadsheet slam’ function in eCon. This involves entry of cargo item descriptions into an Excel spreadsheet which is then ‘slammed’ into eCon, rather than having to enter each line separately.
