Word Netwaybill n : a receipt given by the carrier to the shipper acknowledging receipt of the goods being shipped and specifying the terms of delivery [syn: bill of lading]
EtymologyFrom way + bill
A waybill is a document issued by a carrier giving details and instructions relating to the shipment of a consignment of goods. Typically it will show the names of the consignor and consignee, the point of origin of the consignment, its destination, route, and method of shipment, and the amount charged for carriage. Unlike a bill of lading, which includes much of the same information, a waybill is not a document of title.
A digital waybill is an electronic version of a waybill, which has become very common as many shipments are ordered through the internet. The driving force behind the movement to the Digital Waybill has been the lowering of printing costs for shipping companies in the North American market. The European market has also benefited from cost savings through the reduction in telephone and fax costs due to the increased usage of the digital waybill. In some regions, it has been referred to as an e-Waybill however this is not the industry standard.
