Delivery Order [Last Updated by: admin on 2012-01-01]
An order, commonly addressed to a terminal superintendent or warehouse manager, directing the release of specified cargo to a particular receiver. The order may in some cases be issued by seller, shipper or consignee, while in other contexts the order will be issued by the shipping' line or carrier. Commonly, a delivery order directs delivery of part of a larger consignment, which is itself covered by a single bill of lading; i.e., the issuance of several delivery orders "splits up" the cargo covered by the bill of lading. In any event, delivery orders should be clearly distinguished from bills of lading: the delivery order is not a negotiable document, nor does it evidence receipt of the goods, nor does it contain the provisions of the transport contract under which the goods were shipped.
