What is a Bill of Lading?
A Bill of Lading is the proof of the shipment and that the carrier has received a cargo which will be released only against presentation of the original Bill of lading (B/L).
提单（B/L）是货运证明。 它可以证明船公司收到了一定数量的货物，仅在出示提单 (B/L) 正本的情况下方可放行这些货物。
托运人使用提单作为在约定地点交付所运货物的证明。 提单也可用于证明货运单中所载货物的数量和外观状态。 托运人和收货人之间的付款通过使用和交换提单的所有权得以顺利完成。需要注意的是，船公司不参与货物所有权的变更。 船公司仅负责把货物从一个地方运输到另一个地方。
