The bill of lading refers to the basis for dealing with the rights and obligations of both parties in the transportation between the carrier and the shipper. Although it is generally not a contract signed by both parties, the main items that constitute the contract, such as the name of the ship, the date of sailing, the route, the port of call, and other related freight items, are well known; there are freight rates and transportation conditions, and the carrier It is also predetermined. Therefore, when the shipper or its agent makes a booking with the carrier, the contract is considered to be established. Therefore, although the content of the terms is drafted by the carrier unilaterally, the shipper should also consider that both parties have recognized it, that is, it becomes a contract of carriage.
The cargo manifest, also known as the manifest, is a summary list of the entire ship's export cargo compiled according to the bill of lading or the bill of lading at the destination port. Its content includes ship name, voyage number, captain, port of departure and destination, date of sailing, consignor, consignee, name of goods, packaging, marking and number, number of pieces, gross weight, size, etc.
The cargo manifest is a very important general document in international shipping practice. When the ship goes through the import and export declaration procedures, it must submit the cargo manifest, which is the document for the customs to supervise the entry and exit of the goods carried by the ship. The manifest is also one of the documents for the port and the tally agency to arrange unloading.
