Your Export Plan Section 5 Part 6

Transportation and Documentation




On the last post we went over the Certificate of Origin and how important the certificate  can be when exporters/importers wish to take advantage of preferential duty rates offered through U.S. free trade agreements.

How the Insurance Certificate that must be obtained for all exports. This assures the consignee that insurance will cover the loss of, or damage to, the cargo during transit.

We also covered that depending on the product, it may be necessary to have an Inspection Certificate. Documentation must be precise or may prevent the inventory from being shipped.

On this post we will cover the documents needed for the movement of goods  between inland points and the port at which the export will arrive/depart.

Documents Used during Inland Movement of Goods— At-A-Glance

  • Shipper’s Instructions
  • Inland Bill of Lading
  • Delivery Instructions
  • Dock Receipts
  • Bill of Lading/Air Waybill

Shipper’s Instructions

As an exporter, you are responsible for providing your freight forwarder with the necessary information regarding your shipment. The more details you provide, the greater the chances your goods will move free of problems. Your freight forwarder can provide you with a commonly used form for noting shipper’s instructions.

Inland Bill of Lading

Inland bills of lading document the transportation of goods between inland points and the port at which the export will arrive/depart.

  • Rail shipments use “waybills on rail.”
  • Truck shipments use “pro forma” bills of lading. Delivery Instructions

The Delivery Instructions

This document is prepared by the freight forwarder. It provides information for the trucking or railroad company as to where the goods are to be delivered.

Dock Receipts

A Dock Receipt transfers shipping obligations from the domestic to the international carrier. It goes into effect when the shipment reaches the terminal.

Bill of Lading/Air Waybill

Marine bills of lading are evidence of title (ownership) of the goods; an air waybill is not. However, both set forth the international carrier’s responsibility to transport the goods to their named destination.

There are two types of marine (or “ocean”) bills of lading used to transfer ownership:

  • Straight (nonnegotiable) Bill of Lading: provides for delivery of goods only to the person named in the bill of lading and must be marked “non-negotiable”;
  • Shipper’s Order (negotiable): provides for delivery of goods to the person named in the bill of lading, or anyone else who is designated. The Shipper’s Order is used with draft or Letter of Credit shipments and enables the bank involved in the export transaction to take title to the goods if the buyer defaults. The bank will not release title of the goods to the buyer until payment is received, and will not release funds to you until conditions of sale have been satisfied.

When using air freight, “air waybills” take the place of bills of lading.

  • Air waybills are issued only in nonnegotiable form. As such, you and the bank lose title to the goods once the shipment commences.
  • Most air waybills also contain a customs declaration form.
