Mandera has introduced numerous online-based features that are meant to improve service delivery to the customers. One of the most notable features is the electronic bill of lading. It is commonly abbreviated BoL or B/L. The document serves three primary functions. They include:
- It is the evidence of a contract of carriage between the client and the company. This document is legally significant and can be used to file litigations in a court of law. This document also acts as the reference point to ensure that carriers convey the goods according to the will of the seller. Incorrect filling of this document may lead to criminal prosecution of the courier company
- It is used to show acknowledgment of the goods. This document is used to indicate that the carrier has received the goods from the seller in sound condition. This is crucial as the seller can easily follow where the goods got damaged in case the buyer complains of receiving cargo in bad condition.
- It serves as a document title to the goods in transit. The document also aids in giving the carrier the right of ownership of the good at the time of transportation. The carriers can use this document to demand payment from the buyers upon delivery of the goods.
This is just one of the many innovative practices that Perry Mandera has brought to The Custom Companies, Inc. making it one of the most trusted institutions in the transport business. Perry Mandera is also a strong believer in charging clients the appropriate prices for the service.
