A legal document (contract) between the shipper of a commodity and the motor carrier delivering the commodity. The bill of landing details the type, quantity and destination of the commodity being carried and also serves as a receipt of shipment when the delivery is complete. Bills of landing must accompany shipped goods, no matter the form of transportation, and must be signed by an authorized representative from the carrier, shipper and receiver. Bills of landing may be made to cover the whole trip, or separate bills of landing can be prepared for each carrier.
