Advanced Bills of Lading Course

About the Course

Bills of lading are the most important documents in world trade, including shipping of every kind. Understanding the commercial and legal considerations are vital to successful shipping and transportation of cargoes. All players involved with bills of lading, including shipowners, charterers, brokers, agents, lawyers and bankers need to have a firm grasp of the complexities involved in careful use of these essential documents.

Our bills of lading masterclass will provide a comprehensive knowledge of bills of lading. Participants will explore the issues and complexities of bills of lading and learn how they function, what purpose they serve and their implications for the shipping of company-specific goods. Various international regulations will be discussed, including Hague and HagueVisby Rules, Hamburg Rules, Rotterdam Rules, UCP 500 & 600 and ISBP as well as the issues with fraudulent bills of lading, key clauses and obligations in employing electronic bills of lading.

Through a combination of theory, discussion, practical examples and exercises, our bills of lading course will allow you to gain a comprehensive understanding of the fundamentals involved in the careful creation and use of these crucial documents.
