Paperwork is still the center of all things logistics. And of all the paperwork, the most important piece is the bill of lading (BOL). Why? The BOL is the legal document that includes all of the details about the shipment and the goods being carried and it serves as a receipt, meaning the carrier won’t be paid for the delivery without it. The BOL performs three key functions:
œ Proof or evidence of contract of carriage.
œ Proof to receipt of goods.
œ Document of title
