The Ocean Cargo Manifest Summary is the official source document used by the MSC
to render billings for ocean transportation.

manifesting activity (WCA) will prepare a separate summary for each discharge
Since DD Form 1386 is a dual-purpose form, you must check to ensure that an "X"
is in the box to the left of the word Summary in the upper left corner of the
form. In the upper right corner, check to see that the proper box, Original or
Revised has an "X".
To check a revision to previously submitted data, ensure
that each previously submitted item requiring deletion or correction is listed
under the heading DELETE exactly as it appeared on the original. Below the list
of deleted items, the list of correct entries should be entered under the heading
ADD. For more information on revisions, see Appendix E of this subcourse. After
checking the boxes for accuracy, you must review the header data (Blocks 1
through 7) on DD Form 1386 to ensure that entries are correct.
