  • The most convenient way of transportation between the continents.

Seaway Bill — a kind of a waybill. They are of the following types: Ocean Waybills, Data Freight Receipts, Linear Waybills. Dock Receipt or Dock Warrant — contains the characteristics, marking and volume of the cargo, it is executed upon receipt of the goods for transportation at the pier of the port for transportation abroad.

Delivery Order — receipt from the carrier and confirmation of the contract of transportation of the goods. They are of 2 types: ship order (for carriers) and sellers (in case of sale of one lot by parts to different purchasers).
