Term Definition
Bill of Lading

The bill of lading is a legal document that allows the trucking company to transport the freight from point 'A' to point 'B'.

When the driver delivers the freight, she/he must get the receiver to sign the bill of lading. The signed bill of lading allows the trucking company to bill the consignee for their services.
