This webinar will discuss the pitfalls experienced by carriers when delivering cargo without production of the original Bill of Lading and whether electronic Bills of Lading provide the solution - a commercial perspective.

Specific issues to be discussed will include:

  • Delivery of cargo without production of the Bill of Lading – the legal implications and Club cover (P&I and FD&D/Defence)
  • LOI “do’s and don’ts”
  • Electronic Bills of Lading: BIMCO’s initiatives, a cargo trader’s perspective and the Law Commission’s proposed reforms to recognise eBills.
