Depending on how the Inland Bill of Lading is used and prepared, it serves as:
- A receipt by the carrier for the goods being transported;
- The contract for carriage in the absence of an individually negotiated contract between a shipper and a carrier; and/or
- Evidence of ownership of the goods being transported in ocean shipments.
