Bill of Lading is similar to a receipt. It is a piece of paper that a shipper would give to the driver lists a description of what is being shipped and where it is being shipped to, just to acknowledge that they have picked up their items to be shipped. This way the shipper has proof that the transportation company received their items in case something gets lost. after the shipment is delivered the same bill of lading will be a proof of delivery (POD) in case the receiver is asking for a signature.
