The bill of lading is a receipt for goods that the carrier agrees to transport and to deliver to a designated person. It shows the list of goods delivered for transportation. In case of loss, damage, or delay, the bill of lading is the basis for filing freight claims. The bill of lading includes information about:

  • The customer order.

  • The carrier.

  • The origin and destination of the shipment.

  • The number of units in the shipment.

  • Freight charge terms.

  • Special instructions.

Shipping documents for sales orders and transfer orders can be created in batch. From the physical shipment update form, when you send a shipment, the program can automatically create a bill of lading.
