BOL stands for the Bill of Lading, which means a bill of loading. It is essential paperwork that contains the necessary information for the carriers and shippers alike before the loading and after the unloading of the motor vehicles. On this document, the carriers upon the arrival for the pick-up record all the information about the cargo: vehicle type, its destination, delivery time, and the names of drivers and the shippers. Also, in it, the person who picks up the freight jots down the condition after examining it, so when the customers receive their property, they can see if it is the same way they have shipped it. If some happen to the cargo, the carriers’ insurance immediately reimburses our clients because BOL will show and prove the damages.
