How to amend shipper details in Bill of Lading?
Can a Bill of Lading be amended in shipper column once after issue of BL? How to amend shipper details of Bill of Lading after release of Bill of Lading from shipping carrier? Who can amend Bill of Lading – Issuer of Bill of Lading at port of Loading or his associate office at overseas?
Bill of lading - BL is issued by shipping carrier of goods on receipt of cargo from shipper after completion of necessary export customs formalities. Once after issuing Bill of Lading, the shipping documents are sent to overseas buyer through the shipper’s bank. Normally, after releasing Bill of lading, the supplier sends a copy to consignee electronically, either by mail or fax.
The supplier may come to know the discrepancy of shipper details in bill of lading once after releasing BL by the carrier. If the discrepancy of shipper details in Bill of lading is found before submitting documents with supplier’s bank, the amendment can be effected by submitting all originals with the freight forwarder at load port who issued BL. The freight forwarder who carries goods can amend shipper details in bill of lading, only on the basis of export shipping documents authorized by customs authorities. So, if any details of addition, deletion, or correction are required, amendment of shipping bill is required to amend BL. In such cases, exporter or his customs broker need to amend shipper details in the said shipping documents with customs firstly and after completion of such amendment of shipper details in shipping bill, he can approach shipping liner(carrier) to amend shipper details in Bill of Lading accordingly.
If an amendment of shipper details is required once after submitting original bill of lading with shipper’s bank, the overseas buyer can amend shipper details in the said original bill of lading once after receiving BL from his bank through shipper’s bank. At this time, the consignee needs to approach the shipping liner’s counter part office at consignee’s location. The carrier (shipping company) at consignee’s location needs a ‘No Objection’ letter or message to amend shipper details in bill of lading from his counter part at load port who issued Bill of Lading. In turn, the shipping company at load port confirms the details to his counterpart at destination regarding amendment of shipper details in BL. The freight forwarder at load port provides ‘no objection’ up to the extent of information available in export shipping bill submitted by exporter. If consignee needs to amend shipper details other than declared in export shipping bill, the exporter (shipper) can amend shipping bill at load port with customs and submit such amended shipping bill with shipping company , so as to enable him to send a ‘no objection’ to amend shipper details to include in bill of lading.
