  • The BL can be MBL (Master Bill of Lading) which appears if there are freight forwarders involved or the direct exporter and importer and is issued by the shipping company. If it is HBL (House Bill of Lading), the actual exporter and importer will appear and it will be issued by a freight forwarder.
  • The BL can be Express (it is enough with the presentation in pdf by email to dispatch the goods and deliver them) or Original (3 originals and 2-3 copies are printed depending on the need and against the delivery of documents the goods can be dispatched and then delivered).
