Location of goods codes

The Location of Goods field is what tells TSW where to send the delivery notifications.


A ‘Location of goods’ refers to the premises where the consignment will be held awaiting clearance, specifically to a freight forwarder’s store, the premises must be both a CCA and a MPI Transitional Facility (TF) but you can use either premises code in the Location of goods field.

A valid premises code must be shown in the ‘Location of goods’ field:

  • when the shipment is arriving by airfreight or post
  • for sea freight shipments, when the location of the shipment is different from the port of discharge e.g. the shipment is at a freight forwarder’s premises or an MPI Transitional Facility.

This location will be electronically notified when the consignment clearance or movement is approved.

This list shows the current  Location of goods codes [XLSX] for approved premises in each port region.

This document (TSW Electronic Delivery Notifications) is a guide for industry to understand how to notify the right parties electronically using TSW.
