Bill of lading

« Zurück zum Glossar

The bill of lading is a document that is usually used as confirmation of the contract of carriage between the sender and the charterer. It serves as the main document for transportation and is required for customs clearance. It is also considered a “title” or “certificate” for the freight. Bills of lading are only used for ocean freight.
