Sea Waybill

A document which is not a Bill of Lading but is such a receipt for goods as contains or evidences a contract for the carriage of goods by sea and identifies the person to whom delivery of the goods is to be made by the Carrier in accordance with that contract.

Unlike a Bill of Lading, it is non-Transferable. Presentation of the sea waybill by the Consignee is not, however, required to take delivery of the goods.
