Dear AWS Agent, 


Should your customer insist upon this type document AWS would require a Letter of Indemnification (LOI) detailing the request for a Seaway B/L and releasing All World Shipping from liability during the delivery process.




Bills of Lading and Sea Waybills are the two main documents used in the transport of goods by sea, both domestic and abroad. It can be confusing to apply and use these documents correctly; however, each one performs very specific functions.


A Sea Waybill is evidence of a contract of carriage and receipt of the goods being transported; whereas a Bill of Lading acts as the contract of carriage and receipt of the goods, while also serving as a document of title affording ownership.




Also known as “Express Release Bill of Lading” or “Straight Bill of Lading,” a Sea Waybill is used when the shipper decides to release ownership of the cargo immediately. This means that the goods can be delivered to the person identified in the document, and they will simply have to verify their identity instead of presenting a document to claim the freight.


It is important to mention that a Sea Waybill only plays an evidential function and does not give title to the goods (nonnegotiable).


When the shipment is loaded, the shipper receives a SWB simply as a reference. In this case, neither the shipper nor the importer are obligated to submit any additional documents to the carrier, and therefore the cargo is released as soon as it is available at the port.

It is therefore not a recommended process and should your customer insist upon this type document we would require a Letter of Indemnification as outlined in the first paragraph. This would be a general request for any shipment tenured in this manner. This protects you and All World Shipping from potential Liability if Commercial Terms are not met between Shipper and Consignee.
