Abstract

The transfer of an order bill of lading requires its endorsement and subsequent delivery. This working paper offers a detailed analysis of these requirements, and it discusses the endorsement in blank, the restrictive endorsement, the endorsement of spent bills of the lading and the ‘duly’ endorsement of straight and bearer bills of lading in the process.

Keywords: Bills of lading, endorsement, delivery, spent bills of lading, rights of suit
