Bill of Lading is considered a legal document that accompanies a shipment and details the items being carried, the quantity, and their destination. It also serves as a shipping receipt when the items are delivered and requires the signatures of the shipper, carrier, and customer.
Bill of Lading is a new report in the upcoming v14.0 release that will be found under the
Sales module in the
Processing reports section. Supporting the report is a new global code, called Bill of Lading Notes (BLN), which allows various disclaimer notes to be created to meet the requirements of the many possible shipping destinations. One of notes may then be selected and added to the report when the Bill of Lading report is printed.
The Bill of Lading may use one of two report forms. One details the items being shipped and the other is used to manually add the list of items and quantities.
Look for this report in the new release.
