Waybill


A waybill (UIC) is a document issued by a carrier giving details and instructions relating to the shipment of a consignment of goods. Typically it will show the names of the consignor and consignee, the point of origin of the consignment, its destination, and route. Most freight forwarders and trucking companies use an in-house waybill called a house bill. These typically contain "conditions of contract of carriage" terms on the back of the form. These terms cover limits to liability and other terms and conditions.[1]

Most airlines use a different form called an air waybill which lists additional items such as airport of destination, flight number, and time.[2]

A waybill is similar to that of a courier's receipt which contains the details of the consignor and the consignee, and also the point of origin and destination.[3]
