Description

This API enables the functionality to support the Inventory Linking Export process. Inventory Linking controls and monitors cargo moving through temporary storage facilities, and allows the movement/transition through frontiers.

There are three functional areas:

  • consolidation - this enables the combining of consignments into one master consignment, or splitting into multiple consignments

  • movement - records the movement of consignments within Customs controlled storage facilities

  • query - the querying of data held within the Inventory Linking Export database

Within each of these functional areas, there are multiple message types, each performing a specific activity.

The sandbox endpoint is https://test-api.service.hmrc.gov.uk.
