A Bill of Lading is a legal document that serves as a receipt of freight services, a contract between a freight carrier and the shipper, and a document of title.

It is a legally binding document providing the driver and the carrier with all the details needed to process the freight shipment and invoice it correctly, such as which goods are being shipped, the quantity, and the origin and destination of the shipment.
