Bill of Lading (UCP 600 – Article 20)

Research indicates that trade and exchange of goods and commodities via sea can be traced back to the Stone Age.


Transshipment is considered as a legal term and involves transfer of goods/container from one conveyance to another for reshipment. For example sea transport to road transport. Shipments involving more than one mode of conveyance issue multi-modal shipment document which is a single document covering the entire shipment.
