Get on the Road to Success With Our Bill of Lading Services & Packages
As you may already know, a bill of lading (BOL/BL) is crucial for the transportation industry’s success. It is a legal form used to take care of shipping freight, goods, or cargo. Each bill of lading serves as a mutually agreed-upon document. That agreement concerns the shipper of goods or cargo and the carrier.
Every BOL outlines important details about a shipment. The details can include the number of goods getting shipped and product classifications. The bill of lading also specifies the destination of every shipment of cargo or goods.
Trucking Authority Packages can provide you with any bill of lading service. From signing documents to automated software that can help your company succeed. All you need to do is call our organization and tell us what your carrier envisions. We can then make that vision a reality through our custom bill of lading packages. Our team won’t rest until your company has a better mechanism for processing all your BOL’s.
All Bills of Lading Have Three Purposes
Bill of lading forms gets used across many sectors of the transportation industry. Every BOL has three main purposes:
1. Bills of lading function as a title document for cargo and goods. You can use them to establish the ownership of cargo and goods. This applies to any shipment in the transportation process. Remember that the ownership of goods and cargo transfers fast. It goes from the seller to buyers right as loaded freight or goods leave the origin.
2. The bill of lading serves as a receipt for cargo and goods. Once a shipment is complete, a consignee signs the BOL. This means that the document from the shipper now has receipt-status.
3. Bills of lading are contracts between each shipper and carrier. The bill of lading functions as a shipment’s terms and conditions. Shippers and carriers agree to terms when they sign each bill of lading.
Due to these three purposes, it is crucial that your company must process a bill of lading in a legal manner. You should make sure that 100 percent compliant methods get used. Otherwise, a goods carrier risks getting fined or penalized by the US government. Not to mention, your customers could sue you if your bill of lading processes aren’t accurate. You won’t have to worry about these outcomes with Trucking Authority Packages at your side. Our team can put the right BOL processes in place for a carrier within one business day.
When Do Companies Have To Use a Bill of Lading?
Bills of Lading get used whenever a carrier conducts freight transportation services. This is according to Title 49 U.S. Code 14706. Many companies think that BOLs are only for goods shipped using a truck. But that is not the case when it comes to a shipper sending cargo or goods.
A bill of lading getting used applies to every mode of carrier transportation. That’s because the bill of lading contains crucial information about the shipper. The information about goods and cargo concerns all parties involved with a shipment.
If a carrier does not use a bill of lading, it is almost impossible to prove liability for goods and cargo. Sure, this applies to cases of damage or loss with the cargo and goods. But it also applies to many situations that shipping companies must go through. A Bill of Lading makes it clear when goods switch hands from a shipper.
Simple shipper receipts do not contain enough information. If you want the terms of your shipment to seem clear, then you need bills of lading. And our organization can start supplying you with BOL tools and resources right now.

When It Comes to the Bill of Lading, We Handle All Types

The Consequences of Using An Inaccurate Bill of Lading
There are many consequences for filing inaccurate bills of lading. Of course, a desired recipient might not receive the goods that you transport. But there are other negative consequences that can ruin the reputation of businesses. For one, consignees can claim damages if a description of goods isn’t correct. You will then have to deal with all sorts of claims issues. Even failing to mark the correct number of goods can lead to severe claims consequences.
Here are four other negative consequences for using an inaccurate bill of lading:
1. The loss of the right to limit liability.
2. The loss of P&I coverage.
3. Losing the right of indemnity on behalf of the charterer.
4. Criminal prosecution.
