  • Dispatching bills of lading

     
     
    Because in theory each original B/L in a set can be used to claim the goods at destination, a buyer will want to be in possession of all the originals in a set before making payment. Documents are often sent in two dispatches with the bills of lading split between them, simply to minimize the risks of all of them being lost or delayed. Only when the buyer has received both dispatches will payment be made, unless the first contains a bank guarantee for any missing B/L. Many exporters use courier services however and send all documents at once.
