AWB original 3 for principal

Post by alice »

Dear all
Do you accept AWB marked as original 3 (for Principal) in presentation under letter of credit?
As per UCP it must be original for consignor or shipper.
Best regards

Hi Pal,

I think that if the airline uses the term "Principal" i/o shipper or consignor, the original 3 for Principal should be accepted.
Banks are not aware of the behaviour of members of other industry.
Other comments appreciated
