Explain what are Bill of Lading & Shipping Bill. What is the difference between them?


Bill of lading definition: a required document to move a freight shipment. The bill of lading (BOL) works as a receipt of freight services, a contract between a freight carrier and shipper and a document of title. The bill of lading is a legally binding document providing the driver and the carrier all the details needed to process the freight shipment and invoice it correctly.

When a customer books a shipment with Freightquote, the bill of lading is automatically generated based on the shipment details entered during the quoting and booking process. The bill of lading should be provided to the carrier on pick up and will be delivered to the consignee on delivery.

A bill of lading is a statement to a company of merchandise coming into the store or warehouse. It lists what items that the store or warehouse has ordered, how many palettes the items fit on, and the total weight of the shipment. A shipping bill is the document showing the company or individual the amount he/she owes for each item they have ordered.
