How bill of lading works?
Bill of Lading, a written receipt issued by a transportation company to a shipper. It also serves as an agreement, or contract, between the shipper and the transportation company. In this agreement the shipping company is called the carrier; the shipper is called the consignor; and the party to receive the shipment is the consignee. The bill of lading gives the names and addresses of the consignor and consignee, the carrier's charges, and a description of the goods and the kind of packaging used.
When used only as a receipt and contract, it is called a straight bill of lading. When used with a draft to collect payment for the goods from the consignee, it is called a negotiable, or order, bill of lading

"Switch" bills of lading are a second set of bills of lading issued by the carrier (or by the carrier's agent) in substitution for the set issued at the time of shipment. The agent who is asked to produce the second set is often not at the load port. The holder of the bills may decide, for one reaso…n or another, that the first set of bills is unsuitable, and the carrier is put under commercial pressure to issue switch bills to satisfy his new requirements. Some of these reasons are: â¢ The original bill names a discharge port which is subsequently changed (perhaps because the goods have been resold); â¢ A seller of the goods in a chain of contracts does not wish the name of the original shipper to be known; â¢ The goods were shipped originally in small parcels, and the buyer requires one bill of lading covering all of the parcels to facilitate his on-sale. The perils of having two sets of bills of lading in circulation for the same cargo are obvious and shipagents must make sure they follow these rules: â¢ The principal's written authority should be obtained to issue switch bills; â¢ They should only be issued if the first complete set has been surrendered; â¢ They should not contain misrepresentations, eg as to the true port of loading, or the condition of the cargo. If switch bills contain misrepresentations, the carrier/agent will be at risk of claims from parties who have suffered a loss because of such misrepresentations. ( Full Answer )

A bill of lading is a type of document that is used to acknowledge the receipt of a shipment of goods. A transportation company or carrier issues this document to a shipper. In addition to acknowledging the receipt of goods, a bill of lading indicates the particular vessel on which the goods have b…een placed, their intended destination, and the terms for transporting the shipment to its final destination. Inland, ocean, through, and air waybill are the names given to bills of lading. An inland bill of lading is a document that establishes an agreement between a shipper and a transportation company for the transportation of goods. It is used to lay out the terms for transporting items overland to the exporter's international transportation company. An ocean bill of lading is a document that provides terms between an exporter and international carrier for the shipment of goods to a foreign location overseas. A through bill of lading is a contract that covers the specific terms agreed to by a shipper and carrier. This document covers the domestic and international transportation of export merchandise. It provides the details of the agreed upon transportation between specific locations for a set monetary amount. An air waybill is a bill of lading that establishes terms of flights for the transportation of goods both domestically and internationally. This document also serves as a receipt for the shipper, proving the carrier's acceptance of the shipper's goods and agreement to carry those goods to a specific airport. Essentially, an air waybill is a type of through bill of lading. This is because air waybills may cover both international and domestic transportation of goods. By contrast, ocean shipments require both inland and ocean bills of lading. Inland bills of lading are necessary for the domestic transportation of goods and ocean bills of lading are necessary for the international carriage of goods. Therefore, through bills of lading may not be used for ocean shipments. Inland and ocean bills of lading may be negotiable or non-negotiable. If the bill of lading is non-negotiable, the transportation carrier is required to provide delivery only to the consignee named in the document. If the bill of lading is negotiable, the person with ownership of the bill of lading has the right of ownership of the goods and the right to re-route the shipment. ( Full Answer )
