SLI Requirements

Please note the following important information relating to export cargo and accompanying Shipper's Letter of Instruction (SLI) documentation.

Weight Documentation

Published: 13 March 2015

Champion Freight wishes to advise all customers the Shipper Letter of Instruction (SLI) must include the nett weight and not the consignment's gross weight. It has come to our attention some SLI's have been incorrectly submitted using the shipment's gross weight, which includes the weight of cargo, packaging and the shipping container's tare weight.

It is the requirement of shipping lines for the SLI to include nett weights (the weight of cargo and packaging). The container's tare weight will automatically generate within the carrier's system to calculate the gross weight, which is necessary for vessel planners and local authorities.


Please contact Champion Freight if you have any questions or require further assistance. SLI's templates are available on our website to view, download and print.
