What is Electronic Bill of Lading (BOL)?
An electronic bill of lading is a required document to move a freight shipment. The electronic bill of lading is a legally binding document that works as a receipt of freight services, a document of title, and as a contract between a freight carrier and shipper. It allows everything to be properly invoiced.
By creating your Bill of Lading (BOL) online, you have the ability to receive real-time operational information, which leads to increased efficiency and improved service. The user-friendly interface uses auto-fill and auto-complete features for convenient data processing. At a simple click of a button, you can accomplish many tasks, such as:
- Printing the BOL and Shipping Labels on plain paper with a standard laser or dot matrix printer
- Email or Save BOL as PDF file
- Exporting BOL information into Excel
Electronic vs. Paper
There are many benefits for using an electronic bill of lading vs a paper version. The electronic version allows users to have access to features such as auto-fill and auto-complete. Paper versions require manual processes to complete the bill of lading.
