Bill of Lading, what is it? 

For each mode of transport by sea, air or road, you should provide a transport document or bill of lading. A transport document such as a Bill of Lading, records the contract of the transport, so that the transporter can prove that he is entitled to transport the goods on behalf of the owner and to deliver them at the place of destination. In addition, a B/L is obligated to identify the goods. Every form of transport has a different transport document. If you choose to ship your goods as sea freight owner, then you need a B/L. A shipping bill, originally intended solely for transporting goods over the sea, is now also used for inland shipping. In a Bill of Lading is information about e.g. the shipping and transport conditions, the goods, the shipping company, the consignor, the shipping agent and the consignee. There are several types, such as a B/L with name, a B/L on order and a straight Bill of Lading. The difference between the different types is the tradability and transferability of a particular type of Bill of Lading.
