Mate Receipt

 

Mate's Receipt:

Mate's receipt is a receipt issued by the Commanding Officer of the ship when the cargo is loaded on the ship. It is a prima facie evidence that goods are loaded in the vessel. Mate's receipt is first handed over to the Port Trust Authorities. After making payment of all port dues, the exporter or his agent collects the mate's receipt from the Port Trust Authorities. Mate's receipt is freely transferable. It must be handed over to the shipping company in order to get the bill of lading. Bill of lading is prepared on the basis of the mate's receipt.

Mate's receipt is not a document of title of goods. It is merely a receipt of goods. However, it is an important document as without it, the exporter will not be able to obtain the title document of goods, i.e., the bill of lading.

Types of Mate's Receipts:

(a) Clean Mate's Receipt: The Commanding Officer of the ship issues a clean mates receipt, if he is satisfied that goods are packed properly and there is no defect in the packing of the cargo or package.

(b) Qualified Mate's Receipt: A qualified mate's receipt is issued when the Commanding Officer of the ship is not satisfied with the packing of the goods and the shipping company does not take any responsibility of damage in transit.
