DEFINITION of 'Inland Bill Of Lading'

INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Inland Bill Of Lading'

An inland bill of lading allows the transporter to move goods across domestic land, via rail or truck. If the goods are to be shipped overseas, an addition document known as an "ocean bill of lading" is required. The inland bill only allows the materials to reach the shore, while the ocean bill allows its transport overseas.
