Kind of Bill of Ladings
Maersk issues 3 types of Transport Documents and your preference will depend on the terms of trade you have negotiated with your customer at destination.
1. Negotiable Shipped on Board transport document can be used to transfer title to goods by endorsement and is only issued when the container has been loaded, guaranteeing that the vessel mentioned on the document is the first vessel voyage on which the container was shipped.
2. Negotiable Received for Shipment document can also be used to transfer title to goods by endorsement, but unlike the Shipped on Board Transport Document, it can be issued when the container has gated in to the port but even before it has loaded, thereby stating that the container has been ‘received’ to be shipped on a certain vessel voyage, but not guaranteeing that it has indeed loaded
3. Sea waybill is a Transport Document that is issued when there is a high degree of trust between the shipper and the consignee. Sea waybills are not negotiable documents, and cargo is only released to the consignee. You can however have ‘Shipped on Board Sea waybills’ or ‘Received for Shipment Sea waybills’
For Negotiable Transport Documents, the shipper must physically transfer the document to the consignee. Physical surrender of a Negotiable Transport Document is required for release of cargo at destination as cargo is released to the party in whose favour the document has been endorsed. For Sea waybills, while issuance is legally mandatory, collecting a Sea waybill at destination is not a requirement for release of cargo as cargo is only released to the nominated consignee.
Cargo can be handled in all ports with no more than 30 tons all in (Average Tare KG + Maximum Payload), because apart of local road restrictions there are some ships with lifting capacity in their cranes no more than 35 tons.
