A bill of lading document establishes the terms by which shippers and transportation companies move freight between specified points, for specified charges. It serves as a receipt, a contract of carriage, and a document of title to goods.
We provide bill of lading data entry and standardization support to shippers, carriers, and customers (the consignees) of goods to ensure that they receive accurate information for goods processing.
Bill of lading processing adheres to a sequence of definite steps which include:
- Receive scanned bill of lading from your server.
- Access the bill of lading and begin the digitizing process using our advanced, proprietary software.
- Digitally capture freight bill number, shipment date, weight, pallets and pieces, shipper and consignee particulars, and any other desired details of shipment.
- Verify and audit bills of lading for any discrepancies.
- Send the digitized, verified, and audited bill of lading back to your servers.
The bill of lading form has been altered by most shippers, with the intention of tailoring it in accordance with the requirements of the carrier and the consignee, for scheduling and unloading of the shipment.
The standard bill of lading document and guidelines complicate these differences, therefore reducing the processing time and accuracy of the bill. Vee Technologies standardizes the bill of lading process to ensure that shippers, carriers, and customers (the consignees) are freed to access information they need for goods processing.
