  1. The difference between a bill of lading and a packing slip is that:
    A bill of lading is a contract of shipping. It is usually non negotiable and indicates the shipment origin and destination points, the name of the carrier, description of the freight, dimensions and weight as well as the released value of the goods and any special instructions to the carrier regarding the move. It is signed by both the shipper and carrier representative (usually the driver) and is the agreement under which the goods are released to the carrier for transportation.

    A packing slip is the form in which the goods are described. This includes a description, part numbers, quantities per box, weight per unit etc. While it will also include some of the pertinent information shown on the bill of lading, it refers primarily to the inventory of the shipment relating directly to the purchase order. In some cases copies of the packing slip are signed by the receiver and given to the delivering carrier as proof of delivery, indicating whether or not the goods have been received damaged or short shipped.
