Express bill of lading

An express bill of lading is a type of bill of lading that is issued for expedited shipments, where the goods are delivered to the consignee as soon as possible, without waiting for consolidation with other shipments. It is a document that acknowledges the receipt of goods for shipment and serves as a contract between the shipper and the carrier. The express bill of lading usually contains detailed information about the goods, the shipping route, and the delivery date.
