The Bill of Lading is the primary document used in sea transport. The buyer (also referred to as the “consignee”) must present the Bill of Lading to receive the cargo. The Bill of Lading is a physical document, except when a shipment uses Telex Release, where the Bill of Lading is sent digitally. A Bill of Lading functions as a contract of carriage, a transport goods receipt, and a document entitling its holder to the ownership of the cargo.
Shipping Instructions, or SI, is a document that provides detailed specifications of a shipment, like a container number, seal number, exact number of packages, HS code of the commodity, etc.
The instructions in the document are used to create your Bill of Lading or Sea Waybill which is the main legal transportation document used in shipping.
When you create your partner under the company profiles they will not be notified of your action. However, if you then choose to select a certain buyer or supplier for your booking, they will be notified automatically that you have chosen them to play a role in your bookings. They may then be asked to sign up on Twill to perform certain actions. This will make sure the shipment goes smoothly and creates transparency for you in terms of seeing various deadlines, actions and statuses.
