Bill Of Lading

Bill of Lading is a contract between the trucking company and the shipper. This contract provides details of the cargo including: what it weighs, where it is going, what it is, the limit of the carriers’ liability, either by weight or declared value.

It is important to note that the value on this bill of lading becomes important if there is a claim. Be sure to speak to your broker or agent if you have questions about cargo insurance.

There are differences in payment and disposition of the cargo between Canada and the United States if a load cannot be delivered. Take control of your insurance.
