What is bill of lading ? How does it differ from bill of entry



Bill of lading is a document wherein the shipping company gives its official receipt of the goods put on board its vessel and at the same time gives the undertaking to carry them to the port of destination. It is also a document of title of the goods and as such is freely transferable by the
endorsement and delivery.
Bill of entry contains information such as name and address of the importer, name of the ship, number of packages, marks on the package, description of goods, quantity and value of goods, name and address of the exporter, port of destination and customs duty payable.
