Ocean Bill of Lading
Bill of lading including shipment on an ocean vessel, also called a "marine bill of lading".
Marine Bill of Lading
Synonymous with "ocean bill of lading."
Marine Cargo Insurance
Insurance covering loss of or damage to goods in the course of international transportation. The term is used for both air and land transportation as well as ocean transportation.
Multimodal Bill of Lading
Bill of lading covering shipment of goods by more than one means of transportation but including an ocean leg. The two major forms of multimodal bill of lading are the combined transport bill of lading and the through bill of lading. In a "combined transport bill of lading", the carrier signing the bill of lading (the "contractual carrier") frequently subcontracts the various legs to other carriers (the "actual carriers"), but still takes responsibility for delivery of the goods to the "place of delivery" and for any damage that might
occur during carriage. In a "through bill of lading", the carrier takes responsibility for the goods only up to a specified point (still called the "place of delivery") and then passes responsibility to a second carrier for "on-carriage" to the "final destination."
Shipment of goods by more than one means of transportation but including an ocean leg (see "multimodal bill of lading").
Bill of Lading
Document signed by a transportation company (carrier) to show
receipt of goods for transportation from and to the points indicated. Although US law recognizes such a thing as a non-negotiable bill of lading, international law distinguishes bills of lading from waybills in that a bill of lading is a title document issued to order of a "consignee," who can then transfer title (legal ownership of
the goods) by endorsement and delivery ("negotiation") of the bill of lading.
Someone must present the bill of lading at the point of delivery in order to claim the goods. A waybill is not negotiable in this way and the transportation company will simply deliver the goods to the consignee. A transport document issued "consigned to order of..." is a negotiable bill of lading; one issued simply "consigned to..." is a nonnegotiable waybill. See also "multimodal bill of lading," "ocean bill of lading," "port-to-port bill of lading."
