How must cargo be declared in a report to UK Customs?

If the ship is carrying a single bulk commodity (such as oil in bulk or grain in bulk), details can be given in box 13 of the General Declaration form.

Otherwise, the cargo declaration will normally consist of the cargo manifest, although other commercial or administrative documents relating to the goods and containing the necessary particulars for each consignment may be accepted. At some UK ports, a computerized cargo declaration may be made.
