Let us discuss about Import General Manifest. Once after arrival of cargo at a destination customs location, the carrier has to file with customs, the details of goods arrived. Each lot of arrival from a particular vessel or aircraft need to be filed separately. Each bunch containing the details of arrival of each shipment is called IGM number. In other words, on each arrival of vessel, aircraft or other carrying vehicle, details of shipments arrived are filed separately.  One bunch  of shipments arrived  is filed under one IGM. Such one bunch contains the goods under different shipments of different parties.  Each shipment under each bill of lading is serially numbered under the said one IGM.  This serial number is called Line number.  Difference between IGM and Gateway IGM
