A consignment note is a shipping agreement between a shipper and the carrier that transport the goods. It is not a document of title but rather a waybill that lists the goods that’s being carried by the shipper.

In an exporting or importing business, a shipper may load a buyer’s goods that are ordered from overseas like furniture and custom jewelry. Depending on the quantity of the orders, buyers often purchase in bulk to save on costs of buying and shipping these from other countries. It’s through these kinds of purchase arrangements that sellers load these in container vans that are either 20- or 40-foot long, which will then be loaded in cargo vessels.
Since sea-faring cargo vessels are cheaper than shipment by plane, most buyers often content themselves with waiting for the shipment to arrive. Once these shipments are loaded to the vessel, the seller or shipper will then prepare a consignment note that will be signed by the carrier—in this case the vessel—as proof of receipt of consignment for delivery to the buyer’s port upon arrival. On the consignment note are the list of items that are being shipped, the name of the consignee, and the shipment fees that are charged for the shipping.
The use of a consignment note is the accepted standard for shipping goods that has become compulsory due to its effectiveness. The consignment note details everything for the buyer including the weight and condition of the goods at the time of shipment and all instructions related to the items. Even the terms of payment, be it cash on delivery (COD) or letter of credit (LC) are listed on the details of the consignment note.

A consignment note, however, is different from a bill of lading, which serves as a receipt of shipment. While a consignment note is similar to a bill of lading in that both lists down the type, quantity, and the destination of the goods being shipped, the bill of lading is a legal document that is signed by an authorized representative from the vessel carrier, the shipper, and the buyer. This can also be used to track down the arrival of the goods for claiming. For the buyer, getting both a copy of the consignment note and the bill of lading ensures that the goods being shipped are exactly what’s being written on both documents. Users should be able to distinguish between the two, and our website has examples of both documents that users may be able to use as guides.
For other notes that can be used by health-care providers, we also have SOAP Notes that will help health-care providers take note on the condition of a patient subjectively and objectively through observation and talking with patients. These are all free to download and can be used immediately after printing with minor modifications.
