Usually, to transport commodities from one place to another, there needs to be some form of formal documentation to show that these commodities are being transported by a company. This applies to cargo that is being transported via airplanes, ships, or trucks. The document that enables smooth shipping of commodities is called "Bill of Lading."
The Bill of Lading is nothing but a formal document that is carried by a shipper. It includes all the details and necessary information about the goods that are being transported by the shipper. The Bill of Lading is a predetermined bill that shows the proof of the commodity that is being transferred to a predetermined destination. However, such documents need to be signed and authorized by the respective personals.
